Delilah's Delilah

Could there be a model any cuter than this? I think not!!!

I was able to finish her new quilt in record time(for me). I think when you only have a little time available to you, you sure start making the most of it. I just sewed whenever i got the chance.

Look at that leg...chubby, chubby leg!! I love it!!!

i randomly laid out the blocks from the Delilah charm packs that i had and really had to try hard at not over thinking it. I did not want to get stuck at some point in the process because i have terrible analysis paralysis.

The backing is from the same line, and i accidentally overbought yardage so i have plenty for another project.

I quilted it using a hot pink thread that matched the pinks in the fabric...husbands choice. I wanted to play it safe and use my standard off white but he voted otherwise. He said live on the wild side, so i went with it...and i think i like the result. The above pic is courtesy of my little helper, Mitchell....he wanted to help me with my quilty photo shoot. Man, it is hard to hand a nice camera over to a 6 year old.

Sharing finishes over at Amylouwho's has been on hold for a little while, but today she is back and the linky for sew and tell is open. How perfect that i finished this just in time to have something to share with all of you lovely ladies. Go on over and check everyone's projects out, they never disappoint.

Some Good Nerd Lovin'

Happy Valentine's Day to all!!! Last night my very special sweetie wrote me a valentine program....his version of a love note!!!

For those of us that do not write or read programs most of this is self explanatory/obvious but the part he explained to me was the beginning....the 'while (1)' part means that while 1 is equal to 1(ie infinity), so Love will always equal Leslie and Chris. Sweet, no? In that special nerd way that i love so much and that he does so well!!!!

Here my love program is sitting amongst the start of my new was good to dust off my machine(literally) and exciting to sew something again. And of course there has to be a gratuitous baby shot in this post....we love her bunches!!!

A Makeshift Start

Now you see it....

Now you don't!!!

I don't have a lot of time or space for sewing right now so i went with the makeshift solution...a little batting taped to the wall(seen this around blog land for awhile now) in the most inconspicuous place possible....behind my dining room door. It is not big enough to get the whole thing on the wall, but it helped me get an idea of what i wanted to do and a chance to see all the fabrics together. Every time i look at it i feel like i am looking at a Cath Kidston catalog!
