first up, i photographed 4sq #7 before delivering it:
(unusual photo of my baby bump hanging over the ironing board as i press, with littlest sister splishingand splashing in the background)
my older four children all had an activity of some sort or another this morning, so it was just the little girls and me until lunch time. i got my morning obligations out of the way and tackled my stack of projects. finishing the 4sq blankets that i had on hand planned for all my friends was my goal. i got the back put on the boy blanky for my daughter's primary teacher then went after the other two girl blankets i've had the fabric for since march or april. one is done, minus the blanket stitch and the other has a completed top now. that was a lot of cutting, squaring, pinning and a fair bit of pressing and sewing, which is always the fastest part.
the creative family by amanda soule of soulemama blog fame. this was just one more way to give her happy memories associated with her mother and sewing. although i must say, if you look at the method she created for inserting the pins, points poking through the top, i am tempted to think maybe she's not so happy with me after all and seeks to do a little damage next time i reach for a pin.
up next, i have to get the back on 4sq #10, then blanket stitch all 3 of them asap. happy sewing or saturday-ing otherwise to y'all!
