Over a year ago...take or give a couple of months, I decided that I wanted to make a quilt for Oldest when it came time for his baptism. It seemed so far away. So, so far away.
Then before I knew it we were only a couple of months away. BUT, I still was like, "Self, you still have time to whip out a totally intimidating never before done project."
Then before I knew it months passed and I still had not even started said quilt.
With everything going on, I pretty much decided not to attempt it.
Then in a moment of sheer insanity and complete delusion...I get those a lot...I decided to go ahead and just make one.
I chose a pretty simple pattern...which helped for sure.
I have now whipped out the front (above).
I have whipped out the back.
I have even stitched a little personalized message to Oldest.
Alas, I am at the hardest and probably most likely part to cause mistakes and tears...
I have to stitch the quilt together and then AHHHH...bind it.
I have got a little over a week. I can do it...I can do it...right????
In between sewing breaks I am also working on a couple other little projects for his big day.
Including a polaroid-type photo wall. Here are just three of the pictures I have chosen.
I will let you know I pretty much teared up while going through past pictures. I think a Momma forgets how quickly and how much their little ones grow up until she goes through all the past pictures.
Where does the time go?
I am also working on the Harry Potter post as well as some Harry Potter Party tutorials. Hopefully you will see them next week!
