I’m beginning to think I’ve taken on more than I can handle.
With sewing the quilt, that is.
I’ve been sewing like a maniac and there just doesn’t seem to be a lot of progress. I know there has been but it doesn’t seem like it.
I strongly suggest to anyone out there who might be thinking about taking up quilting…
Give yourself more than a month to work on your first one!
I can’t give up…the Princess is so excited about Mummy making her something special for her birthday.
Every day she sits on my lap and asks me for a hint!
Some of my hints have been:
It’s something sewn.
It’s something I’m making.
It’s made out of fabric.
This makes her giggle…because the hints are so obvious to what she knows and do not help her one bit!
“Tell me another hint”, she says.
Sometimes when she asks, I say “I can’t tell you!” in a silly voice and then tickle her until she’s doubled over gasping for air.
She loves to be tickled!
I’m beginning to realize that the anticipation of the gift is probably more exciting than the gift itself! I hope she’s not disappointed – I don’t think she will be.
Tonight she sat on my lap after she came home from Nana’s. She started guessing for the hundredth time about what I was making for her.
This time, she guessed it!
She looked at me with her big, beautiful, blue eyes – I always get distracted by her cute freckles scattered across the bridge of her nose
– and she said, “It’s a blanket!!!” She was very excited about the idea.
I just continued smiling and casually said in my silly voice “I’m not telling you what it is!”
But deep down in side I was jumping up and down for joy!
My little Princess is going to love the quilt I’m making for her!!!
