Swaps and WIPs

January was the 1st month that I participated in this swap. The theme was 'Sing It, Watch It, Read It'. Now, anyone that knows me knows that I am a planner. I've recently decided to join the world of improv sewing/quilting and decided that Jan's swap was a good place to start. My swap partner, Jill, gave me 3 book titles to work from. It finally decided on To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Here's the final product. It's hard to see but I embroidered 2 quotes from the book on to the quilt.
This week finished w/ a lovely package from
Jill. She and I finished our swap projects at the same time! The 1st picture is actually a picture from Jill's blog (since my pics are not nearly as clear). Jill picked 'Crazy' by Patsy Cline (one of the 3 ideas I sent her). This mini is fantastic - hand embroidery, vintage lace and buttons! Love, love, love it!

Here is a peak at the black and white project I started yesterday. Nadine had another free class and we made wavy table runners. I have to finish quilting and add some embellishments. So far, I love it! I can totally see doing this to make fabric for bags, totes, scarves, etc! Possibilities abound!

Just One More...project done, walk w/ the dog, pilates video done, trip to the grocery to buy fruits and veggies!
