Learning to Sew

My Godmother Connie came over yesterday. It was so nice to see her. She lives in Alexandria, so I don't get to see her very often. She took care of me and my sisters when were young kids, when my mom was sick. I feel fortunate to have her in my life.
She brought Sydney a beautiful quilt that she spent countless hours making. It is amazing, and I can't imagine how long she spent making it. Sydney loves it, and hasn't wanted to share it. Which is rare for Sydney, whom is nearly always willing to share whatever she has.
I've always wanted to know how to use my sewing machine. At least to do some basic stuff. It has been a hobbie on my bucket list. While Connie was here she showed me how to make these quick baby blankets. Before she came I went and picked out some cute fabric. I have a few friends that recently had boys, or will be soon, and of course there was NO cute boy fabrics to choose from. I settled on some cute girl fabrics. So, amidst Jake running around and Regan crying, Connie patiently walked me through the steps. I love it, and will definitely be making these for friends. They are lightweight, and can be used for anything. Here is what my masterpiece looked like :)

Thanks Connie!
