I totally forgot about the Friday Night Sew-In, as usual, but by coincidence I was sewing last night anyway.

And then I went on Heidi's blog and I remembered.

I was, for once, doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing.

I sewed some scrappy flannel blocks for a baby quilt.

And look - I even have made a pattern for it.

Hope it turns out okay. I've already taken these pieces apart once because I didn't like the look of what I was making.

Everything I do lately turns to poop (figuratively speaking, of course). I'm experimenting rather than following the rules and I don't do rule-breaking very well; it's not natural for me to go off the beaten path. Maybe I should stick to patterns after all.

I like the pattern! You clever girl. I'm not one to think on my feet either. I signed up for the FNSI and I didn't get any sewing done. :( I just didn't have any motivation. But I have plans to do some sewing this evening and tomorrow morning. I can't wait to see your finished top!

That pattern looks great. Reading your post made me wish I could quilt ... I would love to make a scrappy flannel baby quilt. It sounds so soft and cozy.

You know, I should sketch out my plans. Of course, I probably wouldn't use what I sketched out because I'm not a pattern follower - the opposite of you, I guess. But maybe if it is my own pattern, I'd be more inclined to follow it. Who knows? Anyway, I'm headed to the post office today, and I realized I don't have your address. Or if I do, I have lost it. So, pass it along when you get a chance to I can get your giveaway winnings to you.

break some rules.

Keep doing what you're doing. No pattern=more fun. I will have to try flannel sometime. It's getting to be a flannel time of year.
