Oh my, I hope I'm not the only one that does this: sews right side to wrong side of fabric instead of right sides together. Seems like I've been doing a lot of seam ripping lately,
but, not to worry: I'm still getting lots of fun blocks for daughter Anna Maria's Rainbow Around the Block project
I thought I had all my stashed half square triangle blocks used only to find that there were more hiding under my scraps. So I guess I've got to come up with some more inventive ideas to use them attractively. That is after I do a few simple children's charity quilts.
Speaking of attractive, I'm sure my grandson is going to look quite handsome in this sweater that I finally completed. I'm hoping it's not too terribly large for him. It's supposed to be one of those "oversized" sweaters, but even though I made it a size 12 (and he'll be 13), I'm sure he'll swim in it until he grows a bit more.
I got the sweetest phone call a couple evenings ago from my almost 8 year old granddaughter in New York. I answered the phone, thinking I would be talking to my son and heard this little voice say, "Thank you for the present; the sweater is gorgeous." A "Nani" can not ask for much better appreciation than that. (Photo of that sweater on my June 4 blog)
So now to get back to the matching (though different color) sweater for her big sister's October birthday.
