So, yeah, it has been three months since I last updated this thing. Yikes. But in my defense, I just . . . had other things to do. Okay, yeah, I admit it. Not an excuse. But since I am mainly writing this apology and defense to myself, it turns out that it's also . . . really pathetic. Let us move on!
I finally finished Gavin's quilt. Hooray! I bought the fabric and the pattern (Mixtape quilt from here) a few months ago, and had been slowly slogging through the piecing and the sashing and the cursing and the crying until finally, it had to be quilted. So I cursed and cried my way through the quilting until finally, after all of that, it had to be bound. So I cursed and cried and swore I had entered a time loop as I painstakingly hand-stitched the binding to the backing until finally, gloriously, it was done. No really. Proof!
I used a bunch of space themed fabrics for my little astronaut (he knows almost all the planets by now, by picture and name.)
And here's the back, pieced from the remaining chunks of space fabric.
Here is the binding. Love the binding, worship the binding!
So, as you can see, I have been doing other things. And now I can start something new and ignore this blog for another three months! Awesome!
