Redefining “Soccer Mom”

Binding at last night’s game.  
Nice and clear -no rain- and the quilt kept off the wind. 
Thanks for the encouragement.

If you’re local, check out Tom & Lucy’s Art Shoppe boutique which is going on this weekend. I’m going this afternoon. Maybe we could meet? They always have beautiful things.  Last time I bought some awesome earrings. Jewelry is what I typically buy at craft fairs.  It’s a part of the craft world that I have not allowed myself to enter.  I figure I save money by buying someone else’s finished product rather than buying all the supplies and hoarding them in my basement, never getting to them. I already have one too many hoards.

    I knew you could do it. And who knows, you may convert other moms's to hand work during all of those games.

    Sounds like a great way to spend your day… Cheering on the kids and sewing/quilting.

    It&#39;s such a breath of fresh air to see a soccer mum that distances herself from the &quot;bulldog&quot; variety that made the tour around the world on TV screens giving real soccer mums a bad reputation. Go girl, go!

    I hit the &quot;publish&quot; button a little too fast … your quilt looks gorgeous. I love the bright, sunny feeling it has and the green/white dots are yummy!

    Yay, you! It will probably help you be very calm at the games, too, because you don&#39;t dare jump up and yell. 1: quilt might get dirty. 2: you could stab yourself.
