I spent my weekend experimenting with some quilting designs that have been in my head for a while. The first is a quilt block that I've been dreaming about for my round of the Common Threads quilting bee. I'm wondering if I can actually make the vertical lines match up and how well those colors will play out over a queen size quilt... open to suggestions!
Then I worked on some stitched holiday cards with some super cute green (of course) polka dot fabric I found. I love stitching on paper... it always surprises me that it's so easy to do.
And finally, the girlies got some new bling.... matching, of course. Aw, (spoiled rotten) mama's girls!
My day job involves working on books about crafts (with Lark Books), and it's really hard to read about crafty stuff all day without getting certain urges. Here are my adventures with creative distraction.
