Willy Nilly

I won't lie, I have been feeling a bit like a prisoner these days. The tiny tyrant calling the shots around here is light on sleep and heavy on demands. Lately, I have been itching to do just a little something for myself. Anything that doesn't involve feeding, changing, burping, or holding the baby.

So after lulling her to sleep in her swing (Godsend), I rifled through my scraps, pulled out an assortment and started sewing. Just willy nilly. No plan, except that I planned to cut my finished piece into several mug rugs and quilt them. This is what emerged.

This was about 15 minutes of sewing and cutting. I didn't even press the seams! It was so liberating. If that admission didn't make you clutch your pearls, the next surely will...

I quilted every single one without basting! I plan to attach the binding tonight and then have little hand sewing projects to pick up when I have a minute or two.

I also have been working on a baby quilt for an auction. So far, patch work galore. I am still trying to decide what kind of border it needs.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

I'm still alive

Although I feel a bit zombie like these days.

This little pea is taking up most of my time and energy :)

She was born on April 8th and we are finally starting to get into a bit of a routine around here. Big sister is totally smitten and so are we.

I finally got back to my sewing machine this week. I am working a few things that I hope to blog about next week as finishes!

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts, even though I don't have a finish :)
