i started making a baby quilt way back in early 2002 when my sister-in-law was pregnant but, of course, i never finished it. so i grabbed that fabric, stretched a semi-solid piece of white fabric across my embroidery hoop (i have many!) and started stitching my name. it took a lot longer than i was prepared for and my stitches on the "L" started off quite small but then i saw that was going to be absurd, so i started to lengthen my stitches. i was quite happy when i finished it!
