So... where've I been the past month and a half? According to the archives, not here. (Oops!) And not really at the sewing machine (I only wish I were cool enough to have that many secret projects going on). No no, instead I've been preoccupied with work (the non-sewing kind), closing on our house, and spending some much-needed time with the fam'. So not too shabby, really :)
But I have had a few snippets of time to catch up on some sewing. Namely, my Schnitzel & Boo mini swap!
So I had Shannon (@piecefulkwilter) and I was smitten as soon as I saw the questionnaire:
Jewel tones. Low volume.
Plaids. Stripes. Dots. Scrappy.
Bright. Bold. Graphic.
And of course I couldn't resist adding some more feedsacks and earthy oakshott to the back. Plus a sharpie label. Boom. Done. :)
Of course the upside to parting with this little quilt was knowing it was always destined for such a deserving (and appreciative!) recipient. Because at the end of the day, it's the giving away that fuels most of the making in this house :o)
