I managed to get some sewing done this weekend. I finished the receiving blankets for my cousin. I sewed 4 of them out of the same fabric I used for the quilt. They are bigger then most receiving blankets so maybe my cousin can use them as crib blankets. They look pretty good. You will have to take my word for it because I haven't taken any pictures of them yet....lol. I have a little bit of fabric left over so I am going to try to make a couple of burp clothes. Everything I've made should make a pretty nice shower present.
Just to explain what a newbie I am. I had never ever used the zig zag stitch before. But I think I did a good job of it....it looks nice (again...trust me..lol) It makes such a nice finished edge. I have a serger that my Aunt gave me but I have yet to figure out how to use it. To say I am afraid of it is an understatement. I am hoping the next time my aunt and cousin come down I will get a really good lesson from my cousin.
Momma Newbie worked on her row robin this weekend. She has her row all sewn together, now all she has to do is add it to my quilt top.
That is all that is happening in this part of the world this weekend. Maybe I'll get some more sewing done this week.
