Going Good

It turned out to be a pretty quiet day today. Krissy and Allie went to friends' houses for the night so that left Mac and I to enjoy the day. We had a quiet morning. Mac played outside while it was still cool and I cut the squares for the quilt. Then we went to McDonald's for lunch. We even treated ourselves to ice creams afterwards. We finally came home and I started to sew the squares into strips. Mac decided to watch a movie and not even 20 minutes later he was fast asleep! I took advantage of that moment (who knows when I will get a chance like this again!) and took a nap, too.:)

After my little nap, I finished sewing the squares together and started sewing the strips together. I finished sewing the strips together this evening.:) I am temporarily putting this on hold because I can't decide on which fabric to use for the backing. If I wait till we know the sex of the little one that makes the choice easier. Oh well, maybe looking at it for a few days will help me decide.


The pattern I am doing is basic square quilt pattern. The squares are 5 inches by 5 inches which makes the entire blanket 35 inches by 45 inches so far.

I am not sure what I will work on tomorrow. Mac has a check up with the ENT doctor for his ear in the morning and I have to pick up the girls from their friends houses. I also really need to catch up on the laundry and house cleaning. Yuck! However, that is tomorrow and I still have a little time before bed and I think I will crochet some on the afghan. :)
