Not bad in a loose, artistic sort of way...
I was most worried about Yoda in the beginning because I couldn't imagine getting his face right. But, luckily, my son Hunter is a really good artist. I had him draw the details and I just traced with thread. Hunter ends up doing a lot of my artwork for me. Thank you, honey:) All in all, I kind of like this one but it only matters if Hayden thinks it's cool. Fingers crossed.
Which reminds me, at our guild meeting, I won 39 red/ valentine fat quarters! SCORE!! I think I won it last year or the year before in Jan or Feb because I've won pink before. And, I won the patriotic month once...
Also, last month I won a free applique book. I need to stop thinking of myself as never winning anything!
So, then I moved on to Heart Strings. I made this quilt top a few years ago for Sweet Annies as a store sample. I always thought it was cute and knew I'd never make another one. So, when she was done with it, I bought it back and hung it on my railing for a year. Sunday, I got it quilted. And, I've got it at work with me to finish the binding. My awesome new job allows me to work on this kind of stuff while I'm in between phone calls. Jees, I'm a lucky girl when I think about it!
Happy Stitches everyone!
