Ho, ho, ho! Hee, hee, hee! Ha, ha ha! I think that's my laugh quota for the whole week, right there!
So, all kidding aside, I have a bit of a quandary. There have been lots
of pregnant gals in my office this year (seven total) and I've made a little something
for each of them, like burp cloths or receiving blankets; the most
recent pregnancy and the one person out of those folks that I actually
consider a friend, I made a quilt for her (Brooklyn's Quilt).
is the quandary: another person that is in the same group of friends,
but not someone who I personally consider a friend, is expecting and due
in February and I am totally on the fence about making a quilt for her
baby. Making a quilt is time-consuming, and with my life right now, time
is a luxury that I run short of. I'm not sure I like this person enough
to make a baby quilt for her, but because we all have lunch together about once a week, I would
feel weird if I didn't do it. But I have no drive whatsoever to start anything for her. I haven't even made a baby quilt for my most recent addition to the family (I know, bad quilter!); I've just been making things for other people.
Now is the time to start on it, because I only am able to quilt late at night or during part of the weekend.
Maybe the answer is that I make one for
her, but use a really easy pattern and scraps, so at least I'm not
investing as much time and money into it. Maybe the answer is that I make my own baby a quilt first, then whirl one up for her, so that my family is taken care of before hers.
This is her third child, and I didn't know her until after she had had her other two, so I haven't made anything for her before.
Any pearls of wisdom out
