I managed to get one photo uploaded. This is a little mini (12 by 12) that I made for one of my Wild Thread friends. We had a secret swap for the fall. I love these swaps because I get to play any way I want. I had lots of ideas but nothing stuck until about 2 days before 'swap day'. Yeah, if you're wondering, I did a lot of last minute cramming all through college. Anyway, I saw a little tree design like this in Aimee Ray's book, Doodle Stitching. I combined some hand embroidery with machine applique and voila! Fall folliage for Chris.
Soooo, I have some other last minute projects happening. And, well, I haven't lifted a finger. Nope. Nuthin happnin here except a lot of daydreaming and half baked ponderings. I call my daughter the Queen of Procrastination and now I find myself wondering if I have anything to do with that. No! It can't be! That is a guilty path I can NOT go down. I am going to put that whole thread right out of my mind.
Back to my projects. I have two groups, the Wild Threads and the Modern Quilt Guild, who are beginning modern block swaps. I am not super fond of block swaps (only because I have a basket of blocks from previous swaps that I haven't done anything with). However, I am giving it another go, or two. Today is Friday, on Sunday I meet with the Wild Threads and I am supposed to have two boxes (kits) made up with fabric and directions for my chosen block. But I can't decide on a block. (I also accuse my daughter regularly of extreme indecision. What the hee haw is going on here? maybe she rubbed off on me. Can I blame her? please?) Oy! Oy! I need a block, an awesome fantastic block.
Actually, I need two block designs. The swap with the MQG requires me to pick a block design and then make it in the recipients color choices. Four of those are due in December so I figure I have plenty of time. Tomorrow is another day. Right Scarlet?
I apologize for such shabby posting. When I try to upload photos, it keeps saying 'connection lost to server'. I think it is some kind of issue I am having with blogger but I really don't know. I am going to hit the blogger forums and fish for help there. If you have any tips, feel free to share. Thanks.
