This was too funny not to share right away. So DH just got home from work a bit go. He works for an advertising agency in Kansas City and I'm learning that his hours are just down right horrible. Anyhow, that's a whole different story.
A guy named Brad in DH's office just had a baby. I think the next question from DH might have been an invitation to spend some quality time by myself in my lair sewing, but I didn't really think about that until now. The conversation goes something like this:
DH: Brad had a baby, it's his first. I sit near him and he started a couple days after I did. I would really like to give him a baby quilt. Would you be up for making one?
Me: Sure, I would love to! Girl or Boy?
DH: Boy, but I can't remember the name. (Big smile that he even remembered the sex)
Me: Hey, I have some tops that I finished a while ago. Let me go downstairs and pull some out of the box and see if you like any of them.
DH: You really have stuff done?
Me: Oh yeah.
So I take off the basement to see what's living in the box of unfinished quilt tops. I pulled out 8 and headed back upstairs. Yes there were that many boy quilt tops in the box. Just about as many girl tops. This is why I have declared February Machine Quilting month.
Me: Hey honey, come here and see what I've got. Just let me know which one you like best.
DH: ***Look of AWE*** You really have that many? Why I asked that I have no idea since I'm looking at them.
So he picked a cool Attic Window pattern that has dogs & cats on it. I will be sure to post a picture after it's quilted.
