It’s been a long time, dear readers. Between derby practices and family visits, I’ve been skimping on blog time. So, time to catch up. I finished my new little cousin’s quilt last week and mailed it out to him on Saturday. Declan is the sweetest little guy and I can’t wait to make a trip out west to meet him. Until then, I hope he’ll have some use for his new blankie.
In other news, I’m making a tiny bit of progress on the High Line quilt for my husband. I got a few new colors of Kona cotton and mixed them in. And I also got some light grey quilter’s linen for the sashing that basically creates the window casings. I have almost completed two of the windows now.
I’m so happy with it. All I want to do is finish piecing it! Can’t wait to see how it all looks when I’ve put the whole top together. Then I have to decided how to quilt the thing. Feel free to make suggestions.
I had such a great time with my mom and mother-in-law who came to visit this weekend. My mother-in-law bought me a bag of beautiful already-pieced dresden squares from an antique shop that showcase the most amazing variety of vintage fabrics. I can’t wait to iron them out and post some pictures.
Besides shopping and eating delicious food, the fam also came up to attend my derby bout! I played with our league’s B-level travel team, the Motor City Dissasembly Line. We lost to Tri-City Rollers from Ontario by only 12 points. I’d probably be disappointed by the loss, but I had so much with my team and our awesome managers, and we did come back from a 60-point deficit at the half, so I can’t be too upset. Will post pictures from the bout soon!
