So this is me and my friend Jessie, who also happens to be my brothers girlfriend. (hopefully soon to be wife) Come on Haydn I had to take the dig.
Anyway she was staying with some friends in Layton and I picked her up on Tuesday, right after my black eye fiasco!! Literally, my head was still bleeding LOL
So we spent from Tuesday till Saturday together.
It was a wonderful time.
She got all this material from a place in Salt Lake, some garden village place, is that right? Anyway all these scrap pieces of material. So she could make a quilt.
So we had this vision and decided to just go for it.
We went into Welfare Square and the missionary happened to love making quilts and we told her what we were doing and she stared at us and said "You can't do that, it's only your first time"
Jessie and I looked at each other and starting laughing cause we just assumed it'd be easy.
Ahhhhhhhh turns out making a quilt takes A LOT of time and effort. We were cutting out the material just with my kitchen sissors. Then when Jessie was getting *carple tunnel I rang a friend in the ward and go some MATERIAL CUTTING SISSORS.
Oh my goodness WHO INVENTED THOSE. Man they were the best thing ever. So we glided throught he rest of the peices of material.
Then we went to Joan's for some more material and those ladies listened to our ideas and gave us some GREAT ideas. I just don't know who comes up with this stuff. It's brilliant!!
ANYWAY we're not finished but here it is so far.
Jessie left it with me so I could finish it and I"m really excited. I've never done anything like this before because I don't trust myself. I'm very...............relaxed about things I guess it is and I think when your'e making a quilt you need to be more precise!
So we'll see how it goes.
Thanks to Jessie for getting us started on it. We'll see where I end up with it.
It was a great week of shopping, talking, hanging out, laughing.
Turns out Jessies favourtie colours are grey, pink and peach.
Something you learn after 7 hours of park city shopping!!!
I had a great time and now my house is a disaster and I need to get back on track this week.
Funs over people!!
*I'm pretty sure that this is spelt wrong, but if you've already noticed my spelling isn't my strong point, plus words in NZ are spelt different and I just can't keep up with it all.
So feel free to enlighten me of the correct spelling of this word!
