I did not last

I did not last the summer without attempting some sewing of some sort.  Admidst the house hunt, the job, various other events, I have decided I'll try hand sewing.

I bought fabric, cut them all into squares and started hand sewing the squares together. This is a daunting task considering I know I could whip this up in something like 1.5 days on my machine!  Alas, hand sewing it is.  I've decided I'll also hand quilt this one when it's done just so I can say I've made a quilt, completely be hand.  I am also certain it may be YEARS before I think of doing it again.

Should be pretty though, check out the fabrics. :D

Oooohh Ahhhhhhh...that fabric is delicious. Really cute. What is it and where did you get it?

And as if you were EVER going to last a whole summer without quilting...

Oh shush Ms. P. Now is not the time to point out how right you were all along! ;)

Nah, I bought el cheapo fabric at JoAnn's by my mom's house when I was visiting. I love the colors and was looking for something that could specifically work for porch sitting in the fall.

Love those fabrics. And for some reason, with 5 machines, I've started to hand sew. Enjoying it, but it won't last. Lane
