First off I would like to start this blog with an apology for taking a whole month to put up an new post. I will admit that this is for a couple of reasons. The first is that it was summer. Summer means that I’ve been outside riding horses, buying a car and drinking beer instead of sewing and knitting. The second reason is that the two recent projects I completed were baby shower gifts for a dear friend of mine who I know is on my Instagram so I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. I promise moving forward and into the cooler weather that the outdoor beer drinking and late nights out will soon be fewer and far between which means I will have more time hunched over at my machines and knitting needles. I will admit that I have a new knitting project on the needles at the moment which I’m going to dig into once this is posted.

When I first saw this Noodle Head pattern I knew I had to make it for someone. So when my friend told me she was having a baby I knew right away what I was going to make! This pattern was so easy to follow and I was done the quilt top before I knew it.

Now because I wanted to make it to match her nursery I did tell her I what I was making without giving away too much but I had to ask the colors so I was sure it would go. It’s always so nice to give gifts to others that you know they will cherish and use.

Now…I’m off to watch some Friday Night Lights and knit. Or do dishes. Or knit… yeah knitting sounds good.
