Happy Saturday one and all. I hope your weekend is full or rest, cookies and some booze if needed.
|Starting the quilt.|
You know what I've been doing? I've been filling those pieces of time in-between things with work. You know how you often use a book or even a cross word puzzle to fill those moments in if you are waiting for something or going somewhere? I filled it with quilting and it paid off.
It has some minor cosmetic things that I'm planning on fixing when I get it sewn to it's cotton backing near the end of the project, but all in all I'm quite pleased with this block. Now I get to start on ironing the next 25 squares (which I've started already) and I do it all over again, and again…I'll post progress pictures from time to time, randomly, because, this is going to take forever, so just expect to get sick of it.
Speaking of sick, I am of this project. But it did turn out badass.
I am very pleased with how my MnM robe came out. It's warm and soft and comfortable with its drop sleeves and two button waist.
I didn't want to do a belt, not for a house dress. If I'm bloated, I don't want to worry about a tight belt and it flapping all over the place because it's so loose. I went with the elastic loops that I put in my new dresses and it worked out great, except this robe has a drop waist seam, so I had to reinforce the fabric with some cloth before I attached the buttons.

|Me and lounging go hand in hand.|
Have a great Saturday!
