Marg and I started our second lap quilt last week.
This is how far we got.
A few more blocks got added. I brought a couple fabrics from home that I thought would blend well. Those are Marg's feet. As I sewed, Marg ironed and then laid out the blocks. After cutting, sewing, ironing and trimming, we needed five more blocks.
Then we needed just two more. More shifting of the blocks.
It's a never ending process. Moving blocks so that the overall quilt top is pleasing to the eye.
I think we're done and this is the end result. It will be sewn together the next time we get together.
I had a request to make a vest for Luc, my eldest grandson, with the back longer than the front.
Here it is all complete.
I didn't have to purchase anything except the separating zipper. The lining is a gray/black flannel.
I even managed to add a pocket.
Here's a close-up of the fleece I used. The colour is not true. It's more navy than this photo. It was fun to figure out how to insert the zipper in between the outer fabric and the lining. I learned how to do it when I made the sleep sacks. The vest pattern that I altered helped me when I sewed it together with the lining and turned it all inside out. I thought that having the back longer would be an issue but it wasn't.
We just came home from the airport. My youngest grandson, Teemu, his mom Maili and Casey, his daddy, came home from a two week trip to California to visit the other set of grandparents and friends.
Here he is running down a gentle slope to the parking area.
The luggage fell off the cart and Teemu thought it was funny. He went over to help daddy right away.
Job all finished and now back to more running.
Once he got home the first toy he picked up was his guitar. No surprise there.
On Mondays I look after my little 2 year old twin granddaughters. Nothing much gets done except some knitting at times. Yesterday I did manage to get one thing completed even though I had big plans to finish more.
Remember this little owl? I was told by Severn, my granddaughter that I had to fix him.
I found some fabric glue and little owl now has two good eyes. He went home with the girls where he belongs.
