Productive Saturday

I have recently lost my sewing mojo but I am determined to get it back now that cooler weather is around the corner. I woke up this morning determined to mark something off of my to-sew list. So, I finally made the backing to this Yellow Brick Road baby quilt I made a while back. The above is a sneak peak of the quilt top. The backing is solid and in the brown with pink polka dots fabric. I finished up the backing and sewed the binding into a long strip. Plus, I was extra productive today...I already took it to the long arm quilter! She told me it should be ready in about a week. When I get it back the binding is already ready to go...I'll get it all wrapped up and then hopefully post it sometime next week.

Also, equally productive...sorting wedding pictures! DH & I have been married for 2 1/2 years and all of our wedding pictures (aside from the professional magazine-style album our photographer had printed for us) have been sitting in a tote since we ordered them! Shame! I had big plans to scrapbook all of the photos and incorporate the invites, cards, ribbons and the like but with the babies coming I knew that would never happen. Plus, I'm not much of a scrapbooker (hehe that sounds funny). So, I purchased these nice leather-bound albums from Target (where else!?! - love that store!) and spent the evening organizing and filing the photos away. Now DH can stop asking me when I am going to finish our wedding albums!

Hope you all had a productive (and relaxing) Saturday!

Nice work! Must be the fall weather making you nesty. I've been hankering to organize photos and knit some mittens, myself.

Cute quilt. Good luck with the pictures. I started a book for Henry but never got past ... his birth! Don't even ask about Johns book ...
