The Weekly List

i know it's been a while, but i can assure you i've been busy!  i'm transitioning from one job to another, so balancing both has been stressful, in addition to keeping me busy.  i have squeezed in sewing time, though!

i have three finished quilts that were completed during the last two weeks.  one i gifted BEFORE i took pictures, so the recipient is supposed to take some for me.  the other two i need to photograph, but it's been wet and nasty here almost every afternoon, and my pictures are bad enough without adding rain and overcast skies into the mix.

while i can't show you the three larger quilts i finished, here's some of the smaller things i've finished up for some swaps i'm in:

somehow, after having not participated in but one swap for ages, i suddenly find myself signed up for FOUR:  a fox swap, a unicorn swap, a kitty mini swap, and a ghastlies swap!

the fox pouch is from Issue 18 of Fat Quarterly, the zakka issue.  i'd never done raw edge applique like this before, but i love how it turned out so much that i made a second pouch to keep for myself! i also made a mug rug for my partner, and have already put the mug rug, some fox fabric, and some other goodies inside the pouch so it's ready to mail soon.

i made a unicorn mini (it measures approximately 12" wide and 10"tall), using some heather ross, some alison glass, and even some cotton + steel.  i love the colors in this mini, and i hope my partner does, too!

work is still going to be busy this week, and i'm scheduled for jury duty on tuesday!  good thing i have a new cross stitch kit i can take to work on while i sit around and wait NOT to get picked.

goals for the week:

1. photograph baylor quilt and feathers quilt
2. blog about one of the finishes
3. make a backing for ghastlies quilt
4. plan ghastlies mini

here's to a productive week!

Ooo, new job! I hope you love it.
I've been tempted but have not succumbed to the abundance of swaps. You've made fab things, I hope you get some fab things back.
And the Baylor quilt!
