Happy WIP Wednesday everyone! This week just flew by, and I spent the majority of it in bed or flat on the floor. Turns out, it's not such a good idea to pick up your child while running! The little rascal was trying to make his escape, I ran after him, picked him up and felt a stabbing pain in my lower back. That was Wednesday last week. I even managed to sit him in his seat on the bike, cycle home and cook lunch. When he wanted to be carried up the stairs, I realized I could not stand up straight again. Thankfully, after a trip to the doctor, some muscle relaxing pills and lots of rest, I felt almost back to normal by Sunday.
So of course sewing was almost out of question this past week. Well, almost. I managed to finish my dinosaur quilt top.
After the majority of commenters last week voted no sashing, I decided to go with that option. It's pretty bold now, I guess the baby will have lots of stimulation on that blanket!
However, I haven't given up on the sashing option yet. And since I have a lot of dinosaurs left, I decided to make another quilt with sashing. But for now, this one is ready to be basted. I pieced the back yesterday and hope to get this done by the end of the week.
I think this little guy might be my favourite:
or maybe this one:
Thank you everyone who was kind enough to leave a comment last week and offer his opinion. I really appreciated it. I guess that's one of the reasons why I think WIP Wednesday is such a great idea, to get help from other amazing quilters out there!
Thanks to Lee for hosting us every week!
