Say that 5 times fast!!
I have been so busy lately, I barely know how to start… I have managed to do a few quick quilts since my last crafty update. Here is little quilt I did for Katy‘s birthday boy, I hear it came in a distant second to Karol Ann’s totally cool dinosaur tshirt he got, but hey, who could compete with such cool shirts! I have been trying to improve my freemotion quilting with my small wallhangings and so I have done small stippling on this and quilted some bamboo in the pandas hand and Alex’s name…
I also decided to whip up a quick strippy scrappy valentines day quiltlet for my little quilt shelf…I am working on making my meandering much smaller when I do free motion, and I just love to quilt wavy lines, love the texture they give.
I also finished the quilt top for my cousin in St. Louis Missouri. The center block is a Missouri Puzzle chose for obvious reasons!! I used a photo she sent of the room she wants a quilt for and hope she likes it. Next time we get together I need to get her started quilting. She is a doctor and it might be a relaxing hobby after a long day?? Can anyone suggest a good St. Louis patchwork shop with beginning quilting classes, in case she is interested?
Aine has her first two loose teeth and so last weekend we made a Tooth Fairy Tin together. She designed the top and I used my Xyron 900 to turn it into a magnet to put on the tin!! We made a little pillow to put the tooth on, so now she is all ready for when the tooth fairy comes avisiting!
I have started on a pair of socks for a trade with Katy. I am making her another pair of cotton hand knit socks and she is doing a cute cross stitch sampler for me!
