How do the boys feel about them? Well, Adam still wants he way-too-small fleece blanket and doesn't have too much interest yet in this. Also, even though I made the green for Adam and the blue for Peter, they both have their eyes on the blue one. Personally I like the blue one better too - there is more contrast in the colors so it's more eye catching.
Yes, this project caused me a lot of grief but seeing them cuddled up in these quilts does make it seem worthwhile. I am able to look past all the puckers, tucks, bad fabric choices and crooked stitches that this novice quilter was unable to avoid and see the bigger picture.
So, what's next? I have another catch-up project for the boys that I will have to share in another post but that will be getting the green light now. I am stepping back from SeptemberHouse just a bit as well to do some re-assessing there and to finally get some things done that have been pushed aside for so long. (like say a pair of quilts or maybe that letter to my friend Glenda that I started months and months ago - it's coming Glenda I SWEAR!).
I'm trying out a new embroidery product too and will be sharing my experience here at SoSeptember so stop back for that. If it works well I am going to be soooo happy!
