Well, it took a little while, but I finally added a layer of warmth, courtesy of an old jersey sheet, and a brightly colored (i.e. orange) backing, and we now have a lovely, warm quilt to welcome the newest Gayner. I am so pleased with it, not least because it has a story! I think the orange really makes the milder colors "pop" a little, don't you?
I've also finally finished the sweater I'd been working on. Never mind that it's for 3 months and when he's 3 months it'll be June. No, that doesn't matter at all. What matters is that it's cute. Of course.
