2 inches short


I've been busy lately. Not busy quilting, but busy potty training a 3 year old and busy in general with a 6 year old and a 5 month old. Oh, and the 3 year old is busy too, even when he isn't potty training. In my spare time I've been working on this super easy quilt. If I had had a full afternoon I could have made it then... but it's taken me a month. I was sewing on the finishing touches of purple ric rac (rick rack?) . I was on the very last part. I'm about 2 inches too short. Of course. Fortunately I measured before I sewed on the last row and didn't start sewing it down. Now the problem.... finding matching ric rac (again, rick rack?). I bought this in Orem, but I live in Davis County. That means driving around to fabric shops here with a 5 months old and a potty training 3 year old until I find what I need. Sounds fun to me........

At least you measured first! If it was me I would have gotten to the last 6 inches and called myself a doofus!

I remember those days when it just wasn't worth the effort to leave the house. good for you for still quilting!

Ahhh... the trial and tribulations of motherhood! Know it well. Hope you have good luck finding that rick rack.

ha! you summed up this stage of life so perfectly- what would normally take an afternoon takes a whole month due to crazy busy-ness! good luck with the ric rac hunt!

I remember the days of being a young mother. It is a full time job! I am happy that you are being able to quilt a little.
I live close enough to Orem and would love running to the quiltshop (yeah!) to pick it up for you. Just send me a little swatch and I will get it right in the mail to you.
It's awful to not have quite enough.
