i just finished my first felted bag! i started it about a week ago.. i'm super proud because the pattern was a bit challenging but.. whoo-hoo, i did it! it's a little smaller than i hoped it would be but i'm still satisfied. this was my first attempt at machine felting and i found it much more enjoyable than sweating over a steaming bathtub for ages wearing out every bit of strength left in me. i used the pattern from interweave knits called canteen bag.. how fun!

hand quilting with cats

  • i love this book its great! i started a quilt on january 2nd and i'm nearly done. my original plan was to make the pie in the sky
    but i was completely intimidated by the pieces when i went to cut the fabric so i just began stripping.. eek!

    here are the helpful boys on my strip quilt.. i was in the process of moving the hoop so i can continue quilting.. hand quilting gets old after awhile!
    ..... i think they knew that their pictures would end up on the internet and thats why i got all these wonderful fancy poses!

    quote of the day

    " i need chocolate and Sylvia Browne.. NOW!"
    .. complete girl time did indeed include chocolate and sylvia browne as well as a manicure and pedicure that was completely destroyed and all gunked up by the end of montel.. damn.
