I have been keeping busy these last couple of weeks with various projects. First I want to show off and thank Annette for the terrific postcard she made for me for the current Post Card swap.
I have it sitting on my desk for the remainder of the season. Who better than Charlie Brown to spend time with.
Here is just a little of the back of the card.
I can't show you my contribution to the swap yet as it still hasn't finished making it's way to Canada.
I thought I'd get this post done before Halloween. I found Princess #1 had made herself at home on my Ghastlies quilt. She seems to think it belongs to her and fights with Princess #2 whenever she dares to put her paw on it. She will be very unhappy tomorrow when it's not back on the bed. I'm pretty sure she'll take over a Christmas quilt in the near future.
I got a couple of helmet liners finished and on their way.
A friend sent me a pattern from Michael's for this tote.
It is done with a very bulky yarn. When I went to Michaels they told me that they no longer carry it.
I picked up Bulky yarn #6 but it wasn't quite bulky enough. I went with it anyway and added an extra round. The whole thing took under 3 hours to make.
She loves it just the way it is so all is right with my world. tee, hee.
This is my latest obsession. 2.5 inch tumbler blocks. I made a couple of place mats for a friend last month and found myself hooked to the little guys. I decided that they would make a great leader/ender project. That was until I found myself making 3 instead of 1 after each section of a project. I've gotten about 3 times the number in the picture cut and paired at least once.
Last but not least is a sneak peek at my current project.
I am participating in a challenge with my guild and participating in a blog hop, both in November. I will be using the same quilted piece for both. I have gotten further along than the bags of parts shown above. I'm actually to the sandwiching stage. Please stop back on the 20th to see it completed. More info on the hop can be found on the link at the top right.
Be safe and be happy and enjoy life.
