Lately, I have been having a ball listening to the Casey Anthony trial and sewing my days away. What a life, huh? I'm hoping that they have a mistrial so I can continue my whole summer this way. LOL I am learning a lot about so much (not that I will ever have to use it, I'm sure). I mean what do I need to know about botany, decomposition, and bugs? Actually, I'm waiting for the good stuff. I have read plenty of mystery/lawyery type novels in my life to know that it's coming if I just wait patiently and I'm ready! LOL
I'm trying to catch up on doll quilts. I know, I have made them forever, but this time the DQS rules are different and since I am mostly an applique artist/sewer type person, and they are not allowing any art type quilts and only needle turned applique, I have to build up my supply of pieced quilts since I am the designated "angel" mama and send quilts to those swappers who's partners have flaked or for those quilts that get lost in the mail. Seems I have to send out about 4-5 for every round so I want to be prepared. So far this week, I have made this 11x14 inch one:
And this 10 1/2 by 12 1/2 inch one:
Today I am going to see what I can do with these stars that I showed you once before:
Right now they measure only 7 1/2 square and the size for the swap is anywhere from 9 inches to 18 inches so I have a bit of sewing to make it bigger. I got some ideas last night while I was looking at it, so we'll see what I can come up with today. Wish me luck! Hope you are spending your days doing pleasurable things too. Life is too short to not have some fun! Incidentally, thank you all soooo very much for all your kind and wonderful comments on my posts. I try to answer all of you, but sometimes life gets in the way (or the trial...LOL). Seriously, I really appreciate all of you and I hope you know it!
