Back to a neglected project
I started making a quilt for my grandson about a year ago. I was going to have it ready for his first birthday in August. It didn't get done and in the excitement of building the studio and moving and going to Houston and yada, yada, yada, poor Marco's quilt was set aside. I am back at it and will have it finished by his next birthday for sure. It is one of those things that is going much more slowly than I thought it would, but it will be really bright and cheery when it is finished, I think. Here is how the blocks are going together.
He is a ray of sunshine in my life, along with his sister, so I think this sunny, stripey quilt will suit him to a T. He really is the sweetest little boy. Darling Marco.
And, on another front, my old sewing room is on its way to becoming a new space for guests and for Ray to hang out. It has taken me many months to finally get all my stuff cleared out of there. This weekend Ray started the demo part. It was such an awful room. One wall is painted swimming pool turquoise, the other three are the ubiquitous blue that was painted throughout the house when we bought it. There was a mural of underwater fish that ran around the top of all the walls, and a pink carpet. Yech, pooey! Ray is wasting no time in getting it ready for its makeover.
Flor modular carpet tiles in here. Has anyone used them? I'd love to know if they are as cool as they look online.
