I really need to learn to ask first, commit second. I asked the PTO if they would like me to make a "baby girl basket" for the craft fair this fall. I roped my friend into it too. She will be knitting a few items for the basket. Then I asked what the deadline was....October 23rd! I thought I had into November. Within the next month, we have Halloween costumes, a fourth birthday party, the PTO donations and more.
I am starting with a very quick and simple quilt for the PTO. I bought the 5 yards of the white fabric with polka dots for only $4.00 a few months ago when a store in town was closing. The woman who owned the store sews purses and was selling her extra material. I thought it was steal and would be perfect for the back of a baby quilt. I looked through my scraps for similar pastel tones and am going to make rows of squares with polka dot sashing in between. At least, that is my current plan.
Tonight I am helping a friend with her first sewing project, a pumpkin Halloween costume for her daughter. It is a no sew pattern that we are improving with a little sewing.
