I am going to get my act together shortly to go into Hancock's. Drove by yesterday to see the big sign that said "STORE CLOSING". Darn.

I finished the sailboat top today. If my new grandbaby is a boy, he's all set! Guess I will have to wait until September or October to know if it's a boy or girl. I am looking at patterns to start a quilt for a girl. I decided to do two this time. The other quilt I made ended up a little 'girly' for a boy. Not this time! We got fish and boats.
(And why do I have the only kids who don't want to know what sex the baby is??!?! How easy they could make this!)
I found a quilt today with Teddy Bears. I'm thinking. Anyone have a special pattern you use for a baby quilt?

Mary Jo's is just amazing. I really have to focus or I could just wander around for hours.
I bought a cool backing for the sailboat quilt. I got a new brown that isn't a directional print for boats.
And then I bought some pretty Thimbleberry fabric I just liked. It's stash. But surely I got enough for a quilt!
4 yards background, 4 yards dark (I really liked this one), 2 yards of med dark, 2 yards med, and 1 yard of another sorta' light medium. I was thinking maybe I could just find some blocks and do a sampler. Surely I can get a pretty quilt out of it. Or I might do the Quiltaholics mystery quilt next weekend. That's a thought.........

I have done some sewing. I have finished all the sails for the sailboat quilt and now I'm working on the boats. I have 40 HSTs to sew and square up to finish the boats. (Well, 36 but who's counting?) Then I need to shop for some fabric for the backing. I think I know what I want. Just need to have time to get there and pick it up.
I am so ready for sunshine and warm weather. C'mon spring!
