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!
