Woop Woop! The Anniversary Quilt All Cut OUT!

Well, do you ever notice how things take much longer than we think they will, and we never have as many hours as we think we have? I fell victim to that this weekend. Midweek, I told a group I knit with that I wanted to get my quilt top sewn together this weekend. By Friday, I decided I would be happy with getting it all cut and laid out, along with getting some adorable baby knitting done. By yesterday at noon, I changed that one more time to “cut out quilt top”.

The good news is that it is now 4:00pm, and I have my entire quilt top cut out, and laid out on the floor (with the exception of all but 1 set of flying geese – they are all cut out, but not laid in. If you quilt, you can understand why.. too many pieces.)

So, without any further ado… drumroll please… The Poppy Anniversary Quilt…..


So, what has everyone done while I was focusing on this?

Hanging around doing Soduko…

Climbing the walls (and furniture)…

Making Milk Mustaches…

And Chocolate Nutella Lips…

And Snuggling with Daddy…

Now that it’s all cut out, I have to decide how long I think it will take to get it sewn together. I am going to go way out on a limb here, and say I would love to have it complete by the end of the weekend next weekend. (But then realism kicked in, and I am going to say a realistic goal is 2 weeks… We shall see!)

With Thanksgiving only 4 days away, I have pies, dozens of cupcakes, corn souffle, Pioneer Woman’s Mashed Potatoes, and about a billion other things to make. I am intensely thankful that I am healthy enough this year to be able to do all of these things, and to not be overwhelmed at the prospect of it all. This is the first holiday in almost 9 years where I can say that.

Stay tuned… Yummy food pictures, Baby knitting pictures, and (hopefully) quilting pictures to come over the next few days!
