Paisley Baby Quilt
Well, after not being able to find the appropriate materials to finish this last week in time for the gift I needed, I have finally finished my baby quilt. I decided to list it in my Etsy shop. It was my first adventure in machine quilting and took me a lot longer than it should have, but overall, I am happy with the way it turned out. I did the binding on the machine as well, which I know isn't the "proper" way to do it, but I kind of like the way it looks. I have come to appreciate things not looking perfect in every way. I think it lends personality and charm to the items that you create, makes them special.
On a side note, I am watching Rachel Ray on TV and Minnie Driver is the musical guest. Since when does Minnie Driver sing? I am so tired of people thinking that they are recording artists just because they are famous. Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Scarlett Johanssen, etc., etc., etc. They all end up sounding terrible, not selling albums, and then years from now they will be on a show on MTV or VH1 entitled, "What Were They Thinking?" ie. Bruce Willis. Okay, I'm getting off my high horse now. Have a great day!
