A few months ago, after many nights of Tom having to work late, I decided that I needed a hobby so I decided to get a sewing machine. When I was a teenager I was very resistant to learning how to sew and my Mom likes to make fun of me for saying that I didn't have room in my head to know what a bobbin was. But I have really been enjoying teaching myself how to do something new, so recently I decided that I would try to make a quilt. Tom's mother is a wonderful quilter and he really treasures the quilts that she made for him and I love the quilt she made for our wedding and I wanted to do something for Harper. I found some instructions online for a simple quilt as well as several tutorials on how to do each step and started working on it a couple weeks ago.
The finished product is certainly not perfect, but I can't believe I actually did it. Harper calls it her pink blanket (everything these days is pink).
