Here's what I've got to show for my absent-ness lately. Our little ones have been trading colds and coughs but I think we're over it. We did a lot of this recently...
This is their new favorite book and favorite story - The Gingerbread Man. And yes, that is me.
I am currently hand quilting my husband's quilt! Yahoo, this beast has been weighing heavily on my shoulders. Here's a very badly lit photo of the top, which measured 81x91. And it's pretty great. I tested it by falling asleep while working on it yesterday and it was very nice. It has flannel on the back :)
Here's a sneak peek for my partner in the covert robin swap! I'm hoping to get this baby on it's way this week.
I started a new project from Camille Roskelly's book, Simplify, last weekend and got all the strips sewn up last night. This is the Dream Big pattern in the book and it's been a super quick and painless project so far. I picked out a bunch of spring prints from my stash to use here as it was grey skies and almost rain/snow/sky-spit yucks last week...blah...this quilt will be a reminder of happiness even when the weather sucks.
I still have to pick border fabric. This pattern has a couple borders and I might do white as one of them...or a solid...any ideas?
And to leave you with something that makes me smile
It's so nice when we all get along!
