Bridie's Batik jacket
Here is a picture of my niece and fairy goddaughter, Brigid. We call her Bridie. She is wearing her "Auntie Ann Jacket" which I recently made for her 3rd birthday. My SIL sent me this picture last week. Don't let that smile fool you!!! She is a little demon. Her brother and two sisters are TRIPLETS!!. After three babies at once, my SIL must have been possessed to have another!! She is spoiled rotten by all in our family !!!
I was inspired by Finn (http://finnleah.blogspot.com ) to pull out an old UFO kit that I started last winter after she showed off her new civil war fabric purchases. I want to report that I am making good progress on the HSTs that make up this project. Now, I know why I put it away!! I hate HSTs!!! This quilt is approximately 16 x 20 and totally made up of HSTs in 1.5 and 3.5 inches. As I was sewing and the little devils were being sucked periodically into my machine, I muttered on more than one occasion "Finn!!!" However, finally light dawned and I remembered that I had forgotten to change out the plate to a single hole on the machine. Once that was done, I moved along quickly. I can report that I have a large pile of HSTs waiting to be pressed and trimmed. I hope to have them done by week's end and can start putting the rows together and post pics of my progress..
