Also, Spring is really late here in western NY - my garden is finally started to smile back at me!
Well, or looking at beautiful fabric and dreaming up a project, too! :)
I have a few piles that patiently waited for me...
They are going into a mini quilt since I am one of the lucky ones invited to participate in fun and oh so inspiring Minis Blog Tour, hosted by Pat Bravo. It already already started and I am a bit late talking about it (yeah, coming up for air...remember? ) but if you haven't seen it yet, hop quickly to Pat's blog to follow it all! My turn is coming next week...
Making a mini quilt is just so much fun! It's small, it kinda invites you to play, to dare trying something new... And it is so good to play, to dare, to step out of your usual, right? In fact, it is ESSENTIAL. It is
ESSENTIAL2DAREYup, that is it! That will be the name of my mini quilt - Essential2Dare!!
Oh I just love it!!
Also have another beautiful pile that was waiting for me...
Oh and I even have a finished one to show you, despite my sewing hiatus - a quick, REALLY quick baby quilt had to be made. I literally made this during one and a half evenings (one of them was a late night of course) and was given away - yesterday! My coworker is going to be a dad for a second time and we decided to throw a little
celebration for him, therefore a quilt had to me made, pronto! It was a surprise for him but we managed to ins out that nursery theme is "Under the sea", so a dig through my stash produced this perfect border print
Few quick pinwheel blocks later, here it is:
I figured that under the sea calls for lots of bubbles, some fish and similar things, so with beautiful teal color 50wt Aurifil, a very late night quilting produced this:
Found this really cute flannel in my stash too, for the back. See, it is really, really good to have a big stash when you are in a time crunch! Am I right? ;)
And I apologize for not so good photos - it was 3 am when I finished and it was gone next day...
And the fact that I just wrote this whole blog post while hubby was driving us back from work, tells you about my crazy life and my craving for some more creative time...
Oh well, no whining, just press on!
Have a lovely weekend ahead and happy, happy Mother's Day to you all!
PS - speaking of garden making me smile, here is what greeted me just now, as we arrived home... Lucky me. :)
