  • Mood:


I used to draw quite a bit. I was never that good at it, but I enjoyed it. However, I haven't drawn anything in years. That's probably going to change quite soon.

My friend Melody is pregnant with her first child. She's about twelve weeks along. In six to eight weeks she will find out what gender she is having. If they are having a girl, she wants to decorate the nursery with a mermaid theme. This gave me an idea for a quilt.

One of the things I used to love to draw was mermaids, especially after the release of "The Little Mermaid". If she is having a girl, I will probably draw four mermaids and print them onto fabric,then colour them and put them in her quilt. The pattern I drew up requires eight, but I'll probably just do repeats because I can only think of only so many positions and mermaids to draw. Maybe I can flip them over so you have some that are right side up no matter which way you look.

Anyway, I think she's having a girl. However, if she is having a boy, I'll have to think of something else. What annoys me is that I had an idea and I've lost it. I should have written it down when I thought of it and now it's gone. Blar. Perhaps I will draw something and use it in his quilt too.

I guess I shall have to wait and see!
