It’s done and yes, it was insane. It took all week, but I finished C.’s quilt.
It was insane enough trying to finish his quilt. While he was at school. One day I spent the day quilting out of the house just to be able to get in more quilting time.
It also happened that I needed to finish it during a week when I had a Nativity program for the children at church for the ward Christmas party. A meeting to work on things for next year in Primary. And a baptism in Primary. All very good things.
The children always amaze me when they do a program. They were so excited to do be in the Nativity. We had itchy angels and levitating sheep. Last year the wise men got a little lost. This year the shepherd’s got seperated, but they found each other again. It was great. Having children act out the birth of the Savior just adds a beautiful touch to the season.
And the baptism was wonderful.
There were blips this week. Some bigger than others. But I’m really glad I’ve had the other moments to balance things out.
And I’m really glad the quilt is done in time.
PS – Yellow Brick Road is the name of the pattern. I think the only resemblance to any brick road, yellow or otherwise, is that some of the squares in the blocks look like bricks.
