Yay, Kaaren got her quilts, go see....
I was holding my breath after I sent them off, praying that this wouldn't be the one time the post office messed up for me. I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this effort, you are all just amazing and together we were able to bless Kaaren's socks off. Good job, all of you!!! What a blessing to be a part of this bloggy community.
I've put a whole bunch of pics of the blocks on my flickr. They're all in a set called Kaaren's Quilt. If you'd like to see your block, it should be there, I used every single one. I did have some where the writing bled, I fixed it with textile medium and used those on the tote bag. There are a LOT of pics, fair warning.
My friend Cathy-No-Blog finished a darling baby quilt, and handed it to me to get pics. I want to keep it, it's so cute. I need to take better pics, sigh. Why is it always so gloomy when I want to get pictures!
More pics on flickr too. Been a busy day, uploading. I think the designs she used are from Sew Weird, machine embroidery.
And I finished Val's give-away gift. I can't remember now which month she won, but she had told me to concentrate on Kaaren's quilts and get hers finished when the quilts were done, bless her. She's waited and waited, and Val, this will be shipped Monday.
The back, with hanging sleeve.
And the sweetest little flower...
The design is by Jenny of Elefantz, from Issue 2 of her Elefantz Home Magazine. LOVE IT.
And now? No, I'm not slacking....I'm working on a new set of designs for you. They will be my Christmas gift for this month...I hope. And the design will be free when I'm finished making them.
It's a lot of fun, designing again!
Don't forget about my give-away, leave a comment on this post if you want to enter - you have until October 30th! I'll be back soon with some more tutorials I've found. I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend - it's chilly here, but the sun is out, hooray!
