I haven't posted a quilty picture or message in a while. That's where I'll start. This is a teaser picture of a toddler quilt I am working on. I am annoyed with myself though. I put it on my design wall to figure out the quilting. As long as it was there I figured I'd mark it with my washout blue marker....you know the one....it cannot be ironed. AFTER I marked 1/4 of the quilt I remembered that DUH! I hadn't' fused the batting and backing yet! Since I have made a vow to look at life half full instead of half empty, I am choosing to think that at least it is 3/4 UNMARKED! (It's still annoying though!).
This is a picture of the "birthday cake" a friend made for me. She kept drilling me on what I'd be willing to eat. I thought this was so nice. The flowers are turnips dyed with food coloring.
I thought that these came out so, so cute that I had to share the picture. We made these mouse pads for a some of the staff at work. They always do so much for us and I thought it would be nice to recognize them at the end of the year. Each child put on their fingerprint and then got to decide if they wanted to be a butterfly, ant, spider or ladybug. The kids really enjoyed making them and the recipients were thrilled. I wish that I'd made one for myself!!
