I've been back from retreat now for 2-3 weeks but just haven't felt much like blogging....I know...it's sad but I don't want to make excuses for being MIA.
This has been the spring of "baby news" both at work and for a couple of friends of my daughter so I've been keeping busy with making, binding and wrapping up a few. Last week however, the counselor I work with in school, Peggy (yes, we have the same name...and at one time there were 3 of us Peggy's in the guidance office) asked if I'd put a backing on a counted cross stitch quilt top she did for her daughter Jaclyn who's expecting in July. As she said, just doing the cross stitch was a HUGE accomplishment for her. She didn't have the ability to finish it off.
I brought it home from work on Wednesday and just set it aside, but when I remembered Friday night that the shower was next Saturday I went on a mission to find a nice backing for it.....Of course I had trouble making up my mind. Flannel or cotton, polka dot or flowers? I finally decided on a pink floral flannel and got to work on it. I got the binding on late yesterday afternoon and popped it in the washer last night when I went to bed. I just now took it out of the dryer and look at all it's crinkly goodness!!!!
