WIP Saturday??

Well, I was going to post a WIP Friday post yesterday, but I couldn't find the time to take any pictures. Taking pictures is my biggest stress when it comes to this blog. ANY pictures - I've long ago given up the dream of posting only fabulous photographs of my work. I don't have the time to learn all the ins and outs of my camera, I don't have the money to buy a fancy camera, and I still wouldn't have the time to take the pictures in the first place.

There are so many great craft blogs out there run by women who have small children, and they manage to take unbelievable photos. I don't know how they do it. I sometimes find myself close to tears when Simon refuses to take a nap unless he is lying on my nap, knowing that this may be my only opportunity to take any photographs while there is still daylight available. I think I need to just let it go.

Quilt in Progress

Anyway, this is the best picture I was able to take in the early morning with an overcast sky. It is a crib quilt sized to actually fit over a crib mattress - I know, very radical. I usually make a less narrow quilt that doesn't really go in the crib, but this is a custom job. For the quilting, I'm planning on using those nifty bars on my walking foot to make parallel curved lines. In my head it looks awesome. Let's just hope it looks awesome in reality as well.
