Progress on the quilt:
WHAT!!???!! I’M SORRY I CAN’T HEAR YOU OVER THE QUILT!!!!
It’s a bit on the loud side, but then again so am I, so it works. I attempted to piece the back last night. Note the word attempted. Either the fabric was miscut at the fabric store or it shrunk a lot in the wash. Doesn’t really matter which at this point. Fact is I don’t have enough. I do have yardage of another cotton which I will see if I can piece in with the backing I had planned and I can see if that will work.
And I’ve been so inspired by all of Missycor’s Halloween ornaments (well more jealous than inspired, inspiration implies that I have started stitching some of my own) and last night at Marshall’s I spotted this:
Black Marabou Feathers. OMFG. Between this and the quilt I think it’s pretty much a sure thing that the only taste I have is tacky. But I love it.
And in stitching news, I made something for my exchange with Jill tonight. I’ve had the tutorial for it bookmarked for a while now, and I wish I had done this sooner. It was so easy and it turned out so cute! It was so easy I’m not even sad about giving it away, I could whip up another one any afternoon. I can’t wait to share a picture of it!!! I think I’ve got Jill’s exchange thisclose to ready and I think I can have it in the mail Monday.
