Well, here I am, at 200 posts. I started this blog a little over three years ago and I'm really enjoying having it as a place to show off my work and share a few tutorials for things I know how to do. I appreciate everyone who subscribes and reads and (especially) comments. Thank you all so much! I have been thinking about what to do for a giveaway and, well, will get to that in a minute. I have a few things I want to show off first:
A neighbor friend had a birthday so I made her this skirt:
And a little wristlet. It's my first try; I need to make some more and perfect my technique:
I got some fabric the other day. I love this pink Sultry floral print and will make something for my little girl to wear from it. Not sure what I will do with the charm pack yet but I love charm packs.
This little set is a belated baby gift for a friend. I don't know if she reads my blog, if so I hope she pretends to be surprised when I give it to her! I love how this turned out:
The tag blanket has some ribbon, some wide twill tape, and some bias tape for the tags. I love the colors on this and think it turned out so cute. I made a couple of similar tag blankets a while ago for my girl and my friend Heather's baby and just used one layer of quilt cotton and one layer of baby corduroy. L's seems a little flimsy so for this one I decided to sandwich a layer of flannel in the middle of the two fabric layers to give it some body.
Ok. Finally, on to the giveaway. I started piecing this together as a bit of an "enders and leaders" project while I was making L's strip quilt. I decided to make it into a mini quilt and give it away to one of my readers. Here it is all basted:
It is already halfway quilted. I am doing some ocean wave quilted lines and some just plain wavy lines. I will probably do the quilting on L's quilt very much the same. As soon as I finish it up I will mail it off to the lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is comment here. Please tell me your name, where you live, and what you are making, what you are reading, or just plain old what you are doing these days. I will close the comments and have my assistants help me draw out a name on Friday around lunch time. (I am leaving the computer off until after lunch these days.)
I hope you are having a good Wednesday!
