Baseball Stadium Cushions - It's A Guy Thing Blog Hop

     Welcome to the first day of the

It's a Guy Thing
Blog Hop!

I'm happy to kick things off with my
Baseball Stadium Cushions

Carol at Just Let Me Quilt presented bloggers with the challenge to make something for a guy or tomboy, or in manly-man colors.

Thank you, Carol, for inviting me to join this super fun blog hop!

We've been very busy this summer.
I've barely been in my sewing room or here on my blog.

We have been watching a lot of baseball games.
Dodge City hosts a summer collegiate baseball team.

 College athletes are recruited from all over the nation to play ball in our Kansas league. 

Our team relies on host families to provide the players a home away from home during the summer
we decided to open our home to a player this year.

While he was a total stranger at the beginning of the summer, we have had the pleasure to get to know him and it feels like he's part of our family.
It will be very hard to say goodbye.

Now my project isn't necessarily for him, but it has certainly been better on my bum to have a cushion while I've watched over 20 of his home games on hard bleachers.

If you are interested in making your own cushion, I have a free tutorial
that is for a football version HERE.  

I started the summer using the football cushions at the baseball games.
My sister-in-law poked a little fun at me and that motivated me to make a baseball set.

Baseball playing is a "Guy Thing"
 but with over 40 baseball games to watch, this girl needs a cushion.

Check out all the other Guy Things:

It's so fun to get inspiration from Blog Hops.
I'm sure we will have way too many ideas for our guys by the end of the week.

The summer has been so full and we've made new friends for life.
I'll be back to sewing and blogging more soon - after summer baseball!!!!
