Rest Time Floor Mat
When Sadie's kindergarten teacher informed us at orientation that the kids would have a rest period each day & that we needed to provide a towel with their names written on it in sharpie marker, I thought to myself, "Now that just won't do!" So I started this little towel size quilt last night. I needed to get it done quick, so I just threw it together. I didn't do so good at basting it neatly & I didn't even mark my stitching lines. I just went for it. And it shows! But I don't care. It will do the job.
I'm wondering if the teacher is going to be annoyed with me because this quilt is a bit bulkier than a towel. I used 4 layers of the lightweight cotton batting that I had on hand. It's not going to fold up as compact as a towel. Is she going to think I'm crazy from the get go? Oh well. And I just couldn't bring myself to take a sharpie marker to my wonky little creation, so I'll be spending a little time this evening embroidering her name on it.
Hopefully, when Sadie is struggling to slow her little body down to rest & trying with all her might to stop her mouth from talking (Oh, I am so curious to hear how she does with this daily resting time), she will look at this pretty, pink quilt & feel it's coziness & know that her mama loves her so very much.
