What I’ve spent the past few weeks on instead of reading / writing fanfic: A “roads” quilt for my 3-year-old’s cars.
I took a pre-made quilt-thing as the base, cut up a pair of my husband’s worn-out jeans, and raided my embroidery thread stash. It’s not done yet, but I’m pretty pleased with it - and he loves it, thank goodness. The beauty of embroidery is that he can play with it before it’s “done” - though it does take a long time. Sooooo many stitches.
