Some more quilting pictures and some self-indulgence....
First a picture of my baby! I loved this picture, and I have been playing with photoshop, so a blue picture was too fun.
Here's a cute purse quilt done by Nedra of Cactus Needle, I did a lot of shadowing (echoing) in this quilt and I like how it turned out. I am still struggling with going around circles, I just can't seem to get them exactly right. But, then again I have to remember that I am not a computer and I can't get everything perfect. If I did, what would be the fun in that?
Here's a close up, love it! The quilting just worked out perfectly for this quilt.
Here's the self-indulgence part:
Clint got me a $20 dollar gift certificate to Scrap Apple Quilts for Christmas. I was so thankful because it's been a long time since I just bought fabric for myself to make something for myself, but I did look at him and said "twenty dollars? What can I get for twenty dollars at a quilt store?" So, I spent more than that, he doesn't need to know how much and I bought these cute fabrics to make me some new quilted bags to carry around. Don't know when I will get to them, but I am hoping soon.
I love this show, it came in the mail last Saturday and I have already watched it (listened to it) three times. Do yourself a favor and go get it. I got mine on Amazon.com for 14.97 brand new! Love it! I am a total sucker for Jane Austen and especially BBC versions, they are the best. Don't tell Clint but I bought this a few minutes ago, I have the videos, but I need the DVD's! So, if you are in the mood for some self-indulgence yourself, we still have our Moda pre-cut sale going on and things are moving fast so hop on over here!
