I've been quilting!

This is some secret squirrel business that came to me out of the blue. A group of on-line friends whom I have known for a while now, almost 3 years as we came together from a pregnancy forum. Was that even a sentence? Who cares. I can't even read this properly.

Anyway, one of them had it tough with her second child who was ill since he entered into this world and I thought we could make a quilt for that special little boy. I don't think she reads my blog so it's safe to say this is not going to spoil the surprise. We chose the fabric and someone cut out the circles and I finished the quilt top. It was easier than I expected and more quickly than you'd think. Isn't it cute? Next I have to do the backing and binding.


For the backing we already have this stars and stripes from Spotlight and I am going to create a design for our special message on the back. That will be the next post which will host a giveaway of the software I used. So as usual, stay tuned.

And for those who are curious, my eyesight is still a bit blurry but clearing up especially for short distances. It does seem to fluctuate for long distance as I drive. I can see long distances but it's not 20/20 yet. It does feel so good not to wear glasses or to use my contacts but still annoying that I have to wait for clear eyesight another few weeks. I did play basketball on Sunday (which was the end of the two week ban) and I had the game of my life! I scored a career high of 16 points with my first 3 pointer in like, forever! So if anything the laser surgery had corrected my shooting skills, lol.

Now we're in school holiday mode so it's out to the movies today and a really busy time with all the kids at home with me. I might be needing that left over Xanax by the end of it.

So tell me, what are you doing these holidays?
