Keeping Warm and CozyPosted: October 6, 2013
Last night we got our first real taste of fall. It was in the 50s when I left work! This morning I got up with Ian instead of sleeping in, for once. It’s going to be even colder tomorrow morning when we pick up Abby, so I knew I needed to see the blanket I had planned for her.
Wednesday we went to Hancock and found out that they have fleece remnants for three dollars a yard, so I picked up a yard of pink and let Abby choose between strawberries or cupcakes and puppies. That night I measured out some cord to make piping, and that’s as far as I got.
This morning I cut bias strips from some pink gingham I had and spent half an hour pinning about eight feet of piping. I think that’s been the most pain in the ass step I’ve taken yet for a sewing project–but I know there will be worse when I make my first quilt.
