Spring has finally arrived!

I have finally almost managed to get back to my sewing machine. It has been turned on anyways. I made a quilt for my friend Nicole's boyfriend to give to a baby a friend of his had, and it turned out pretty well-- this is how it turned out....

Everything looks better when it is not lying on my floor. But it did turn out pretty well. Or at least, it did after I managed to get it square, which, the first time I tried to square it up, it ended up almost 2 inches out of square. But that got fixed, and It turned out delightfully.

This weekend I was home for easter, and on Monday my mom and I were playing with all sorts of stuff in the sewing room. We decided to do "arty" quilts, as we never really do that, as we are not "arty" people. What I discovered, is that while I had a ton of fun, my "quilt" looks like a grade 4 art project.

As you can probably see, I was having a lot of fun with tin foil. There is also couching, and buttons, and scrap booking supplies, and silk... I spent all morning making thread lace stuff with wash-away stabilizer, but in the end didn't use it. Oops.

Anyways, I better get going before I miss my bus. Hopefully I'm not away from my sewing machine for too long!
