Another Baby

Another teacher at my school (actually, there are two of them right now) is having a baby.  Here is the quilt top.

The pattern is Hundred Hugs in the tutorial section above. Just a lot of 2-1/2″ squares.  Most were already cut scrap in my squares bin.

Baby quilts are so satisfying–fun colors, quick to make, scrappy.  It doesn’t get any better!

The Alterations Shop Is Open

Daughter, Sparkle Jane, enjoys participating in school theater.  This year she is in the Music Man at her high school. It is all very exciting as the preparations are finalized for opening night next Friday. One of the biggest challenges each year has been costuming–small school, small budget, limited help, etc.

So, I offered to come today (Saturday) and be the alterations shop.

Twenty costumes and five hours later, they are ready to go.  Most of it was nothing big–tighten this button, add a hook-and-eye, take in this waistline, raise this neckline, etc.

I wish I had more pictures, but I was busy!
