squishy, feel good kind of stuff


I managed to finish the binding yesterday morning on my mustard and aqua mermaid quilt. I washed it up and was so incredibly happy with how squishy it ended up! The flannel backing makes it extra cozy, and I can see it being used a lot this winter.


It even coordinates with Casey, so maybe I won't mind when it gets covered in her fur. Although I will not invite her to snuggle in it again.


I made another mug rug as well. As I was putting it together though I didn't really think through durability, so the quilting only goes through the batting, not the backing. So I think this is destined to be a micro-mini of sorts, which will hang on the wall in one of the kids' rooms. But I can see myself making another, and doing it right. It's just so happy.



And finally, Cooper is 9 months old today. As I type this, he is happily cooing away in his crib, hopefully about to fall asleep for his morning nap. Well, scratch that. Now he's fussing, hopefully about to fall asleep for his morning nap. He's about to get his first tooth-- we can see it under the surface ready to pop. And his army crawling is getting pretty fast. He's got a two handed, one foot technique that works well. It makes him a busy guy with a lot going on. We like that.


Have a great, feel good Tuesday! What are you working on this week?

I love your mini! That's the best use of the swimming school fabric that I have ever seen. And your mermaid quilt is gorgeous. What flannel did you use for the backing? I've only done one quilt with flannel and loved how it turned out too.

Great work!

A very nice finish! And, I really like that mini quilt. Did I already tell you that I have the same coffee mugs? Or maybe this is the second time we're copying each other :)

I hope your little man got his nap in and that toothie didn't keep him awake.
