Hearts and Hands for Sendai

Yes, I know I'm on a break, but after reading this I just had to share it. It's a project to create quilts that will then help raise funds for the rebuilding of Japan in the aftermath of the recent earthquake/tsunami. I have ideas and plan on contributing so long as the deadline allows me to. I highly recommend anyone else consider it too.

All Work and No Play...

Exams til April. I'll be trying to keep myself away from craftiness until that is over. I'll give you this lovely shot from the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta last fall that has given me ideas to tide you over.

That is all.

Hot Pink on Ice

So, you remember when I posted this about my very first quilt? Well, I lied.

Technically, these quilted bags were my first adult foray into quilting. (I phrase it this way, as its quite possible I did something under supervision growing up seeing as my mother is a fabulous quilter but if I did, I don't remember it.)

I had wanted to get a Christmas present for both my parents for a while when I got back into stitching. I found the pattern for this piece at the Knitting and Stitching Show the fall of 2009. (Incidentally, it was the same Show I got the pattern for my tiger project)

This piece was my not only my parents gift that Christmas, but its what got me back into crafting after many years of nothing.
