Which is true. So after I set up a million menus for lowering cholesterol, stocked the house with appropriate foods, set him up with a nutritionist, and feel that we are off to a good start, I've been able to start working on the 1st birthday quilt I'm making for my friend's daughter out of the clothes from her first year.
Jen dropped off lots of shirts, materials (she picked out the materials herself) and then I started. Cutting out the shirts, sewing them to the squares, sewing squares together with the internal border. whew! I'm off to a good start. Six hours of work and I have the general front done.
Sew on the outer border
Sew the backing to it
Sew on embellishments
For the record, if my husband ever has high blood pressure, I'm pretty sure I can be to blame. This is our living room (filled with all the cuttings from quilt making)
And this is my dining room:
Okay, but in my defense, he has the basement as his man room. I don't have a sewing/craft room!
Back to the matter at hand: The doll.
While I was at it, I thought I'd use all the scraps I can from the clothing to make other things. First up, a scrappy doll! This is made using only stuff from the quilt and Nora's clothes, with the exception of the yellow button. That's something new ;)
