As It Ends

Too soon. Mid - August and the trees are beginning to change already.

I snapped this pic Mid-August.  I couldn't believe the leaves were already turning and falling.

Despite the on going heat or as most people are calling it, Suddenly Summer, I've got two more Lil' Twister Stockings in the making and they're almost ready for quilting.  These will be for Chris and I.  I'm also sketching out Fiona's RenFaire costume to make up in the next 2 weeks (fingers crossed).  I'm attempting to make it without a pattern.  It's very hard to find patterns in her size for what I'm looking for and really if I were better at writing up patterns I'd publish a few for other people to use.  Wish me luck!

Happy Stitching!

The Feather Quilt (DONE!)

Allison's Wedding Quilt

It's DONE! Completed, boxed up, lovingly given and well received.

I'll admit to being extremely attached to this project.
It certainly was a love/hate relationship with all the pattern woes, but I am so immensely proud of the final result.  I even got a little weepy before wrapping it up.  It's hard to part with something you've put so much effort into, especially knowing you'll never see it again.

The main backing fabric looks so uniform, which surprised even me seeing as it's split down the middle and sewn back together to make 2 seperate pieces.  Even the pieced section looks remarkably "intentional".

And those points.  I feel like I could've almost entered this in a competition.

Perfect Points

Even if it's hot (Summer finally showed up over the weekend here in the Midwest) never underestimate a good final quilt snuggle.

It's MINE!
