it's going to rain today

I keep promising [to all 2 of you...] to include more photos, so here is something that I made.

my first quilt

Look, it's a blurry photo of the quilt I made for my cousin's new baby! Also, there's a cat. It turned out quite well, though I really need to work on cutting & sewing straight. The entire process (aside from my inability to use a rotary cutter correctly) was very fun, and I have discovered that I love hand-sewing quilt bindings. What a very specific thing to love... anyway! I had an awesome time making this, and I have I think two more quilt tops that are ready to assemble and a third that's nearly done. My parents gave me a quilt design wall hanging thing for my birthday, so I'm thinking I'll put that up this weekend and design a few more quilts. I'm planning a trip to Hancock next weekend--notions are 50% off on Saturday--and I think that I will buy a ridiculous amount of quilting thread. I'm going to try making a few more baby quilts to sell. People pay money for baby quilts, right?

I have so many plans, don't I? I think that I am starting to realize that I'm very good at making plans but not always as good with the follow-through. So that is what I'm going to work on from now on--actually doing all of the things that I say that I'm going to do. I'll start on that later though, because this afternoon I'm going to the State Fair with Frank and Katie.
