I got to sew yesterday!

DH took the kids to Target yesterday and I got to sew for a couple hours. I quilted the top I've been working on. Now I just need to figure out how to do the edges. Binding might be the term. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. We went to the bookstore last night and I picked up "Quilting for Dummies," hopefully it's good.

The back is pink terry cloth. Untraditional but delicious, as my dad would say. I thought it would give the back a fun texture for a little kid.

Also put together a little bag, but I need to figure out handles. I also need to figure out a better way to do a bag that's lined with different fabric on the inside and outside. I decided that it was time to be done sewing when I sewed it together (twice) in such a way that it couldn't be turned right side out again.

In knitting progress, I'm on my third skein of Kureyon for the felted bag. It might be bigger than I meant to make it. The yellow baby sweater is coming along slowly, and DH's socks are coming along too.

Lala is home with an ear infection today. We went in to the office and did some light puttering, came home, ate some vegetarian corn dogs and put her down for a nap, much to her chagrin. DH is on travel for work, will be back late Thursday night. The monkey is having some trouble with the idea of "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should" which is probably a tough idea to learn. To put it lightly, today was not the day I expected to have.
