Today's progress report:
Birth Announcement : almost done. Just the bottom border and a few fish. I can finish this today. Yeah!
Spring Casket Keepsakes: Some couching got done but lots more to do.
I went shopping this morning. I got a hairbrained idea. Dylan's birthday is coming up and at the end of this school year he goes onto middle school and I won't be his mentor any more. So I want to make him a quilt. I sat by a lady in the airport in Minneapolis that was telling me about jelly roll race quilts. So I watched a video by Missouri Quilt Company on YouTube about how to make a jelly roll race quilt. It looked so easy. I had a Kaffe Fassett jelly roll but I already sewed parts of it together. So I went looking for a jelly roll of fabrics fit for a soon-to-be 12 year old boy.
I got a jelly roll of African batik fabrics, material for the backing and batting for the inside. ( I should have just bought a quilt!) I want Dylan to have something I made that is just for him and that he can keep and remember. Now I have to get busy!
