To all of you who have been affected by the storm know that you are in my prayers.
Please bear with me as I am still hard at work with this blog thing. There are still so many more to add on my 'follow list'. I finally undertand what everyone was asking for when they said 'follow me, or be a follower'.
On my retreat 2 weeks ago I made this:
It is a pattern by Edyta Sitar of http://www.laundrybasketquilts. I found out she grew up close to where I live now! Maybe if I find out exactly where and walk where she did.... She has a lot of wonderful ideas and designs-check her out! I changed the mittens to poinsettias though. When I started quilting this piece I realized I still had the blue thread in from stitching the pieces onto the background. Talk about 'happy accidents, whew....
Two for one!!!! I'm all for saving when possible.
I also finished this that I started 2 years ago. This is my proto type and am not fond of it, the second one I gave as a wedding gift turned out much nicer. I only had to put one more leaf on this, add the border, and quilt it.
The colors changed but it was too dark so I had to play with it a little. The border is a green and brown mix, the orange mix, and then a really pretty purple.
Now onto my real work. I only broke and had to fix it twice after I had it all together. I can only imagine what will happen when I send it out to be insulated....what will it come back like if I broke it twice!?!?! It is on the table with a piece of white paper behind it(...that's where the clear glass is...).I also put a picture of a close up of a corner in it. Sorry for the glare.
I plan on working on a 'sofa scarf' I started I think 2 or was it 3 years ago? (I really do things faster......sometimes) And for work I have to draw out a panel with Chows and am starting a church entrance.
