Garment Sewing

Memories, Stash, UFO's

Everything Old is New Again!

I decided to get a jump on New Year’s resolutions and began organizing my fabric stash. Since I haven’t done much garment sewing since I started quilting (nearly 20 years ago) I decided to start with the fabric normally used for that purpose ie. non-cotton fabrics. I came across a pattern         that I had cut out and embroidered when I found out that I would become a grandmother for the first time (More than 28 years ago!!).

My daughter had decided on a carousel theme for the nursery. I embroidered a carousal horse and when we learned that the first grandchild was to be a boy I put it away; deciding that it was too ‘girly’.

As it so happens one of my granddaughters is due to have a baby girl in March.  So of course I quickly abandoned the organization chore and decided to finish the romper for her shower in January.

I do think that my granddaughter will get a chuckle out of this gift and hope that she likes both it and the quilt that I’ll give her at the shower.

Now I guess I have to get back to the stash organization.  Darn!!

There is always time to quilt!
