Who doesn't love a good nap - except little children?  They can be falling on their face exhausted and yet if you ask them if they want to take a nap, they'll emphatically deny it.  Personally, I love naps.  I'm the get in the bed and under the covers kind of napper.  And none of that twenty minute resting for me either.  If I don't have enough time for at least an hour and a half, I'll skip it.  With anything less, I just wake up feeling more exhausted.

I just found out from my doctor that I'm anemic and have low B12, so I'm spending a lot of time in bed lately.  And the pets love it.  If I tell them I'm going to take a nap (yes, I talk to them), they all follow me to the bedroom and find their spots.

But this isn't intended to be a post about napping or my sleeping habits, rather 'naptime' is the name of the latest quilt I finished.  I made it for my sister using the fabric she picked out for another quilt, Thistle Down.

Sis with 'Naptime'

It's a lap quilt that finishes around 40"x58" and is reversible.

I used the QAYG (Quilt As You Go) method on it.  And I quilted the large bottom on my frame using a pantograph.

She hung Thistle Down on her living room wall, so I figure this will go nicely over the back of her couch.  And her and the kids can snuggle up under it when the weather turns cold. (I meant to have it finished much earlier in the year!)

I took this picture of Sam today during one of her rare moments of activity.  I think there was a bug on the window that caught her attention.

Until later...
