If there's one thing I've learned by being a new mom, its that free time is a precious commodity. Before the LO arrived, I had oodles of free time and I'd fritter it away watching TV, surfing the net and doing generally nothing worthwhile. Now I value that time so much that I make good use of every moment. I'm actually...get this...*finishing* projects. Um...wow.
My latest completion is a quilt for my wee nephew. Well considering he's already almost as big as my 3 month old son I suppose "wee" isn't the most fitting description. But the quilt is wee, and so I felt compelled to finish it ASAP before the munchkin outgrows it! Now that my own LO has finally consented to nap during the day on his own, I've been piecing the top together bit by bit. And then my darling husband agreed to tend to him for a few hours the last couple of Saturdays so I could really crank it out. And at last its done, just in time for our visit to my brother's house today.
I love the way it turned out and I must give a shout out to Gypsy Junk for her input when I selected fabric. She discovered the monkey head fabric, which really makes it.
