I also finished the fleece blankets for my son-in-law's dad and brother. They will be thrilled when I pull them out at dinner on Sunday. His mom is planning a huge Mexican food feast, so these should be a real hit.
Even though the evening wasn't quite what I had planned, it was still a great night. I lit my lovely scented candle, hubby brought me tea, I watched totally stupid shows on TV (Platinum Weddings, Bridezillas and Swamp Loggers), and didn't do a darn thing but sew. Didn't put a load of wash in the dryer, didn't put the dishes in the dishwasher, didn't vacuum up the threads, and (best of all) did not feel guilty!
And the most awesome thing was that all over the universe, a lot of my quilty sisters were doing exactly the same thing! Thanks, Heidi, for getting this rolling!
