It's been a while since I've even had a moment to update this site - and just as long since I've had time to craft - that is, paper craft. An entire week plus without doing any sketches or anything. Oh Oh Oh! what is this world coming to? *smile. It's something new for sure. Either way, I figured since I haven't been able to post anything scrappy, I'll post some more pictures of our progress on the quilt top that I posted a while ago.
We have now completed the entire top of the quilt (yayy) and it turned out so beautifully!
It took us a while to come this far, but only because we were planning as we went along, and of course, appliquéing takes quite a bit of time.
I've also chosen to include a couple more closeup photos of various parts of the quilt...
These are the two types of patchwork we used - the braid & just mini squares (which is a border that took FOREVER because they were soo tiny and we needed lots and lots)
& here is a picture of the border that mom appliquéd.
Of course I didn't sit around watching mom as she was working on sections where I couldn't help out, soo...I ended up sewing my own quilt. Okay so sure, its only a teeny tiny baby blanket...and absolutely NOT finished yet (lol) buut I decided I needed to try out the log cabin patch before making a whole huge quilt for my bed. So far I have managed to complete 16 blocks. Since I'll need 49 in total, I'm almost half finished.
I am going to have to set it aside for quite a while now, because its Easter and I'm 'booked' with other projects. We are also going to be spring cleaning right after Easter, and then there is my cook week after the Easter holidays....so I packed everything up and will get back into it once everything is back to normal. I just hope we can manage to complete spring cleaning before the cook week starts.
Oops I almost forgot...Sally's Sponsor for this week is Stamps of Life.
There is a beautiful selection of stamps there and I would love to go shopping, but...I can't spend any more money on scrapping supplies until my stash has completely diminished. There is just no more room for anything anymore.
So drop around to Sally's Blog - wish her luck & check out stamps of life. You won't be disappointed - at least, I WASN'T!!!! Hurry now, this lasts only until Sunday!!
Which reminds me...I was going to tell you allll about my BIG win on Winnie's blog and almost forgot. *blush* The very first blog candy I've won. Gosh I'm so tickled about it!!!! Oh, and winning stuff doesn't qualify as adding onto my scrapping stash. LOL
Happy Easter everyone!
