I've typed about 7 sentences to elaborate on my feelings towards Spring's lateness and the crushing desperation we all feel right now... But why type about such hopelessness. I mean it's not like we are all going to go crazy and start splashing gasoline across the yard only to light it on fire to melt the snow... hmmmm, I mean crazy right.
Anyhow with that rant out of the way here is what I've been working on. I finished the Tattoo quilt I was working on for a customer. If you didn't see the post here is a link to the process I used to make it, Tattoo. I really like how it turned out, simple and straight to the point. I quilted it with Leah Day's dubbed sharp stippling.
|Testing. I picked the one on the left.|
I delivered the quilt to my customer while at work at the pub the other evening and had to remind him a million times that it's a quilt not a blanket, hahaha.
|This photo isn't depicting the colour of the quilt properly, but you get the idea.|
I have also been working on more baby quilts. Most recently I completed this puzzle quilt. I think the fabrics I used are too busy but whatever lesson learned. It was fun to make and super easy, I found the tutorial here. I used two fat quarter packs from Wal-Mart and a 5 inch border, worked out to a perfect crib size quilt (but I can't remember the exact dimensions).
I have been doing a lot of crochet, mostly so I don't look out the window and see more depressing winter. I made these cute sweaters for my girls. They picked their own colours. The pattern is called Crochet Girlie Hoodie by Red Heart. I did have to change quite a bit on the sizing. The largest size wouldn't fit my 7 year old in body length or arm length, which in all reality wasn't a difficult adjustment.
I'm linking up with the lovely Canadian fiber crafters who are inspirational beyond belief over at the Needle and Thread Network.
