I wanted to finish picking through my stash (pictured here) to pick out the remaining handful of fabrics for the quilt I'm sending to that sweet 7-year-old in Ohio just as soon as I finish it.
|My fabric stash minus two boxes of orange and yellow|
fabrics and all my I-Spy Fabric. (Not as huge as I'd like it to be,
but I have a nice selection to choose from.)
So far, I've picked out a fair number of fabrics to make the blocks. I tend to make scrappy quilts, so I use a lot of different fabrics in the same quilt.
I removed the tags, washed them, and we dressed him in them. He got down to walk around, and, I've never seen him try to rip clothes off of himself faster. I took him out of them, and discovered the reason why he hated them:
|This is a photo of Elmo's feet. The fabric is extremely thin and |
dotted with something to keep kids from slipping. However, it's extremely
uncomfortable from the inside, and my son won't wear them
since it hurts to walk. Grrrr.
Time I thought it would take to finish this project: 1 hour
Time it actually took to finish this project: Closer to 4 hours.
Since Mister Mister only slept two hours, it ended up taking most of the day, grabbing time to stitch here and there. Once the paint dries, I hope it doesn't hurt his feet.
Lessons: Check the feet on pajamas before buying them. And, sometimes there's a reason why something is on clearance.
Tomorrow I will work on the quilt going to Ohio (when I'm not baking cookies).
