First off, insurance. Um, way expensive! And kind of scary... having my own insurance means I'm like, a real adult. Yikes.
Anyway, so we stopped by my parents' house. I had the chance to sneak down into the storage room and double check that I hadn't forgotten anything I need. And I stumbled upon... this!
Yep. I started making a quilt! Fitting with the theme of the weekend, huh?
This picture was actually taken today, after I've been working on it for a couple hours. I found the quilt beginnings in a box, quilt squares cut and some already sewn into rows.
I don't know when I last worked on this thing, to be honest. I don't even remember starting it. Crazy. I think I got all excited during a Home Ec class in middle school ... I'm really not sure. But when I saw it, I remembered the idea, at least. It's a T-shirt quilt made with all the shirts from Girl Scout Camp, as well as old pairs of jeans. Cute, even for a misguided middle school kid.
I say "misguided" because upon finding the quilt, I remembered one small detail about making it... I didn't measure. Oh yeah. I cut out the squares by putting one T-shirt on top of the other and just snipping away. Tragic! This quilt is kind of a mess.
Being a fix-it person, after I found the quilt, I had to finish it. And, because I now have a sewing machine, I really don't have a excuse not to finish it!
|Ohhh, pretty sewing machine!|
And it feels really good to have a project, to be honest. I wanna get it done soon-- updates to come!
