What a Bummer

I woke yesterday morning with the total and complete yucks. I was supposed to sub at the high school but knew I had fever. So, I called the secretary and told her the sub needed a sub. Took my temp - yep, had a fever - and went back to bed. Yesterday was a total loss.

Two More Quilted Cardigans

I've had fun making these. And, since I've lost a bit of weight, I need to make another!

The red jacket is the first one that I made. I still like this one the best. I have a really hard time finding sweatshirts. That is such a surprise. I really wanted a white sweatshirt for this one...with so many different shades of red, I didn't think I would be able to match it to the fabrics I already had in my stash. I had to settle for gray.

When I made this one for my mother, the navy sweatshirt was much easier to find. At first she thought she wanted the original cuffs left on the sleeves. After she wore it a time or two, she returned it to me. I cut the cuffs off and bound the sleeve edge with a piece of bias binding cut from one of the blue fabrics used in the jacket.
