this is my latest quilty for dqs3. i say latest, because there has been three incarnations of quilts for dws3. i am hoping this will be finished and actually sent to its new home, but i am not holding my breath. i dont know why this swap is being so difficult for me. the border fabric is my favorite color. this was my first time doing this block and i really like it, it wasnt anxiety causing, if you know what i mean. i had a little trouble with a couple of my blocks not lining up, but all in all i was pleased. it is taking forever to quilt it tho!!
it has been getting warmer here every day, yippee!! did you hear we had an earthquake here in illinois yesterday??? i couldnt believe it either!! hehe
before i forget, because you know im forgetful!!! go check out itching2bstitching she is having a contest to name her dress form, and the best part is she is giving away a craft apron. its doubly fun because she is giving away another craft apron if you post about her contest on your blog. so i have doubled my chances of a fat chance in hell!!! haha
ok, so my extra spendy this week went to this lovely little book. it was only $16 dollars with my
teachers discount, that along with a skein of turquoise sugar' n cream yarn and a size G crochet hook brought me to a grand total of $20! beat that ladies!!
a fellow blogger friend jillytacy just posted a fabo tutorial on a sweet little bag, pop over and see it here. i know youre going to feel the need to make one right away. she even has a little flickr group set up so you can show off your talents. now get moving!
