The sister-in-law is dilated to 5cm with labor pains coming in at 5 minute intervals. She's still scheduled for a C-section on the first of February unless her water breaks, or she gets to 10 centimeters. I have to wait until Thursday to mail this out, but it's done....
It's green. It's a baby quilt. It's done!! Katie had asked why I couldn't use blue for this....the Momma is decorating the nursery with black, white, and green. It was a challenge, but I think I managed to make it look "boyish"...graphic, non-flowery, and still look a baby quilt. That, and I could put this on my one-thing, one-week challenge;)
I'm not overly fond of Debbie Mumm fabrics, but this one did the trick. I had a fabric with randomly placed polka dots, but I think the organized ones look better for a boy quilt. Call me crazy, or picky;)
Hope she likes it;)
On another subject...the hubby and I have been out a few times this past week geocaching and hiking around in the nearby Open Space . The weather here has been wonderful this week, with temperatures reaching almost 50*F in the afternoon. With the possibility of winter really setting in the next month or so, we couldn't pass up the chance to get outside;)
Now, mind you...it's still icy here. Because of our altitude, the atmosphere is just a touch thinner thus allowing alot of the heat to escape if we don't have a fair amount of cloud cover. You can get sunburned in 20 minutes, or freeze in the shade. We have learned the importance of dressing in multiple layers so we can adjust quickly to changing temperatures.
If you take a close look at this picture, you can see the frozen clouds of mist;) Very, very cool:)
While we were out on the trail this week, we saw a coyote, a very healthy deer, a very large hawk out hunting, and though we didn't see it personally, the footprints a very sizable wild feline;) We didn't get any pictures of the wildlife...we were too busy enjoying the moment;)
Speaking of felines, Oscar and I have still been going toe to toe on whether or not he gets to get on top of the wall hanging I have been working on....so he says this....
"Okay....will under work????"
I don't know what project I will be moving on to next. I have been searching high and low for a large tumbler block template with no success. I have seen pre-cuts in the stores, but no templates. I was wanting to get one that was 6" wide at the bottom. I can't figure out how to draft my own, or I would do that. If anybody knows where a free template is on the web, or how to draft them, I would love to know;)
Okay, I'm done for now;) Hope everyone has a great day, gets to relax, and get some quilting done;)
