In my last blog, I left out a few things I had done in Nov. The cupcake is from an office baby shower just before Thanksgiving. I thought they were super cute:)
The quilt is something I made for my niece-in-law in Chicago. She had a friend that loves Eeyore and needed a birthday gift. I turned the Y into Eeyore's tail. I thought it was a stroke of genius, personally. I hope they liked it as much as I did.
For the life of me, I can't figure out how to move pictures around on this blog so that they look decent. This is my Twisted Mystery 2011. I started it last January and we were supposed to meet once a month to make this quilt. For one reason or another, it seemed like I never got to meet with them or work on the quilt. I spent several hours finishing the star blocks below the other day.
I wanted so badly to finish this whole thing. What can I say, I'm a finisher. It was like torture for me to sit and work on it. It's just so repetitive. So I decided to cut myself some slack and stopped for awhile. I've still got the Flippin' Flowers and Mist something or another blocks before I can stop.
Above is my latest Quilt of Valor. All that is left is to have it quilted, bound and labeled. This took me about 3 or 4 months. Again, repetitive. Couldn't handle it for long periods.
Then, just because I could, I started my spool quilt. A few months ago, my guild had a fabric strip exchange. I put them to use yesterday & made the spools. There are about 42, I think. Each stack has about 6 of the same colored spools. Now that they're done, I wish I'd had more of the jewel tones. The green and turquoise are super cool.
And, that is all she wrote. Happy New Year!
