With two unfinished quilts, of course I took the supplies to begin an entirely new quilt with me on vacation!
Pattern: Made in Cherry, resized to be 60×60
Fabrics: Hodgepodge of all pink and orange fabrics in my stash, with solid Kona magenta and Denyse Schmidt prints for the back
My lovely niece requested an orange and purple quilt during my last visit home (I haven’t lived there in 25 years, but Indiana will always be “home”). I asked if I could incorporate pink and she said yes, and I was hot on it. I’m so proud of her. She’s spending six months as an intern at Disney as part of a college credit program and if you knew Syd, you’d know this is the perfect job/experience for her! She’s always been a Disney princess! (and I mean that in the best way)
Posting will probably be even less frequent than normal because we’ve decided to put our house on the market! Which is exciting and full of possibilities, but also a TON of work! So far I have painted the den and my son’s room, had the antique bathtub reglazed (why oh why didn’t I do this before? It’s gorgeous!), cleaned my closet, boxed up all my yarn (!!!) and most of my fiber, together with a ton of other things we don’t use on a daily basis. Yesterday I stripped and cleaned the deck and we moved an armoire, china cabinet, large chair, dresser, and many boxes and tubs into storage. Have to make the house appear larger, you know! This weekend I’ll be restaining the deck (if the weather cooperates), and I still have a bazillion other projects to do. So much so that even thinking about it wears me out! But it’ll all be worth it if it helps our house sell quickly and for the most money.
I will still be doing some crafting to maintain my sanity; I need to finish my mom’s b’day quilt and the only knitting readily accessible is all the unfinished projects that have been languishing! Yes, I purposely planned that so I would be forced to finish up some things. I’ll let you know if it works. ;o)
