Sidetracked...in a good way.
My grand-nephew's christening is next Sunday. I requested the day off from work. (Which I got, because there is a big event going on north of town and there won't be much business) I wanted to make him something to commemorate the occasion, so decided to make a wall hanging for him. My niece's theme for his room is mainly giraffes and I found these little Fab-liques last week. I also got the lion one, because my grandson's room theme is safari-y kind of stuff. I thought I might as well do two of them. The green fabrics are for my grand-nephew, since my niece has greens going on and the yellow's are for my grandson, since his room is in yellows and browns. And then of course I found the perfect backing material with both elements involved. I'm so excited. Yesterday I was home from work, because my stomach was not happy with me and as soon as I got it kind of stabilized I went out to find the fabrics. I spent my morning washing, drying and ironing the material. (And of course, catching up with the blogs I read.) I should be able to get these done by tomorrow, barring any dramatic stuff happening. I'll update the finishing, maybe even some in progress, if I make good time.
