I just had a friend Flickr mail me and ask me if I was nuts! (This is nothing new, really, so it really didn't freak me out too badly. I've had this happen alot!.........not the Flickr mail part, but the "nuts" part!) I mean, I do have a few years on me, so as the years progress, the pertinent question remains (and continues!!) lol
Actually, I just posted a few photos of the twin baby quilts that I finished and that's what prompted her question. Let's see if you have the same reaction:
The first picture is of them unwashed. They were quite stiff and unruly with all that dense quilting (which, incidentally took me 8 hours.....ugh! I was so bored after the first one, I thought I'd flip to repeat the process on the second, but I did it!) Then they had to be washed to be snuggly and soft, so the last pic is of them washed and nice.
BUT......this was not my friend's issue. She asked if I was nuts because these are for the friend of my daughters who already has 3 boys and is pregnant with the twins, remember? WHITE, she asked??? White????????? I admit, I thought about it, but I did..........(hanging head in shame here.......but it was necessary due to the color and situation).......machine sewed the binding on them. I KNOW they will probably be washed to death!! I do so want these upcoming babies to be girls! You have no idea! AND, if they are girls, they deserve something pretty and nice................actually, the mom deserves to have her kids (no matter what sex) have something pretty and nice, don't you think? After all, how much stuff can look good after already having 3 boys? SO......that's why I'm nuts! 'Cause the quilts are white! (At least that's why I'm nuts this time! lol) What do you think?
