Happy Thursday! I was planning to share some Quilt Market photos today, but I am unprepared, so they will have to wait until next week! Instead, I thought I'd share a few photos that otherwise probably wouldn't have made it to the blog. Just some tidbits if you will!
I got a quilt bound this week! Hoping to tackle a few more in the next couple days so I can share them! I still bind everything by machine, using this method.
I've been continuing to practice my free-motion swirl quilting. It does seem to be improving! It still takes me forever, but I'm happy with how far it's come. Angela's book Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters was a big help in tackling those swirls!
My "I survived Quilt Market" treat was a giant (and I mean giant!) skein of Miss Babs yarn! I went with Yowza Whatta Skein in Deep Sea Jellyfish! It's delicious. I haven't been knitting much, mostly because I was sewing so much for Market. I also had to tear out my last two projects because of careless mistakes. Oh well! Thankfully yarn is more salvageable than fabric!
I just realized these roses perfectly coordinate with that yarn! I couldn't believe it when I found these at a Super Target for $10! Who could resist?
Lei and I throughly enjoy frequenting the Original Pancake House here in Madison. I can't wait to go back this weekend, their Dutch Delight is ridiculously good!
After years of hunting, I finally snatched up the elusive Orange 404 bowl for my Friendship Pyrex Bowl set! I am so happy that it is finally complete, I really love this set.
Can you spot George bunny? :)
Have a great day!
