In all the rucus and such that has been going on in my house, I have been busy craftwise. Actually the craft thing has been helping me get past the rucus. I have been working intently on an afghan that I had started about a year ago for my sister's birthday that is in May. I was planning on giving it to her LAST May. She will get it this May. It's darned near complete.
The other crafty was something I picked up again after (notice slightly red face) twenty years! It was a quilt top I had made with my silly little self taught skills and materials I had on hand. It's not a beauty by all means, but I was thinking if nothing else, it'll keep toes warm while watching movies on the couch. (If it doesn't distract the movie watcher from the movie!) I have been doing a little something with the quilt for the last year or so, but never really had the motivation to "just do it". I got my small state income tax refund and thought how better to fix the economy than by spending this little stipend on myself? I ordered a Q-Snap quilting frame which arrived on my door step yesterday. I had a 50% off coupon from Joann Fabrics and so saved $50! I like that. It was easy to throw together and easy to set my quilt up on. Talk about motivation! Now all I have to do is sit down and quilt it! Who knows? Next January I might be warming my cold feet under this quilt! I'll probably do some experimental hand quilting with this, why not have a little fun with it?
