After reading a fellow 'villers post about finding an old sewing machine, I got inspired to dig out mine. Mind you, if it ain't square, I ain't sewing it! Needless to say, I'm a much better crocheter than seamstress. I did however, make 2 quilts for my 2 favorite nephews Dylan and JR. Dylan's is the dinosaur one and JR's is the Eagles one. That one killed me as I am a Dallas Cowboys fan, much to my hubby's chagrin! Anywho, they loved them. Especially Dylan who proceeded to become a raptor on the prowl. lol.

I finally finished it! It was a pain in the biscuits but it's done. Sewing it together was the easy part. Having to weave in all the ends that I left hanging, worse than long division! lol. I gave it to the intended couple the other day and they were quite tickled. I'm glad it's now out of my to-do pile. Here are a few pics, sorry they are not that bright but you get the gist.

finish up some old projects. After having a ton of them fall down on me, I realize I need to get cracking! First up is the wedding ring afghan from red heart. The couple it was intended for have been married for about 10 months now. So if I can get it done, it will be an early anniversary present. All of the pieces are there, I just need to sew them together. Oh what fun this shall be!
