a nap time truth

The house is quiet with one napping and one out babysitting.  A truth I've learned is that if I get some work done first and then sit with my book, the hours of nap feel longer and more productive.  If I sit first, I get groggy and it's hard to get up to do anything. Today I sat first, but managed to get my but in gear to also get at some 'can't do with Nolan's help' work.  It helps that my book isn't all that captivating.  My quilt is almost finished - only one side left of the binding to sew - so I'm headed to my machine to see if I can knock that one off my to do list.  It's been a long project and I will be so happy to have it done, even thought it's been in use already many times unfinished.  Photos to come!

Can't wait to see the pics. I just made my first rag quilt out of flannel. I made a crib size one but Riley is asking for a full size one for University!!!

This was the biggest one I've ever made, and I wasn't sure how it would fit in my machine, but I think that not having any batting helped. I'm glad it's done now and I've got one more notch in my belt in the world of quilts!!
