How is it that Lucy is three?!?!?
I mean, she’s my baby!
…Perhaps it’s time for me to start looking at the pictures objectively and realize once and for all, that ain’t no baby no mo’!
Well, to commemorate the day, Lucy got a shirt from me. It would’ve been simpler to make the ‘3’ out of one whole fabric… but then it would have only ‘matched’ one thing. I wanted her to be able to wear it all year – with whatever bottoms she happened to grab*. Hence the colorful patchwork… (*including an inside-out purple plaid skirt)
Plus I think I was itching to do something patchwork-y after designing a quilt for a friend (which may or may not ever actually get made) and also reading about Miss Muffin’s desire to sew a few quilts.
How old are you now, Lucy?
Clearly, we have some practicing to do! Oh wait, there! Do you see it?
Happy birthday, my sweet!
P.S. Project Plan Update: I’m sticking with it and it’s really been moving me along! Had just finished two projects so I could start one I’m itching to do, but then this one showed up and shoved the other new one out of the way! But I stuck with the plan, started AND FINISHED this one, so that counts as one done. And then found another one (a quartet of curtains I told my mom-in-law at Christmas that I’d be happy to shorten for her) that I finished up this afternoon. So that counts as two done!!! And I’m back to being able to unguiltily start this next new one. Which I have. Which, thanks to this project, changed directions just a little and now involves a few dozen little scrappy squares…
