A friend of mine had a baby quite some time ago now...and I'm finally getting around to posting this quilt to the ol blog & hopefully will get it up on Craftster some time in the near future. Sometimes I'm a fly by the seat of the pants crafty gal...but other times I really like to map out the craft from beginning to end...so this is one of the latter projects. I drafted the pattern on the computer...even making vector art of all the fabric patterns to see what the finished quilt would look like even before I started. I'm very happy with how it turned out & I think the little girl liked her new crib quilt!
The quilt is all cotton...backed with flannel & tied... so it can just be thrown in the washer. I'm not a fan of drycleaning or ironing (oh the irony in that...no pun intended!)
Yesterday there was a double feature on tv of Willy Wonka goodness, and although I love Johnny Depp & Tim Burton...the new version just can't hold a candle to the original Charlie & the Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder.
The kitty isn't mine...in fact I don't think he belongs to anybody & may be living under our tool shed. After the last big snow there was a tunnel dug out from under one corner of the building & footprints. He' s wild too...won't let anyone near him. Lucky kitty got a nice dinner the other night, as we had a piece of roast beef that went bad. DH said he'd put the leftovers away & forgot...so 'cat' (as I call him...giving a nod to 'Breakfast at Tiffany's') ...had quite a feast I should think!
I can handle the cold when the snow is this gorgeous & sparkly! Makes it all worth the icy fingers, runny noses, & the strange noises at night when the house creaks against the wind! The temperature got up to the forties the other day & it all melted enough to look like marshmallow fluff. Today it's been coming down again like a snowglobe. Can't wait for the sun to come out to take more pictures!
I'm a crafty gal who lives in Ohio...raising 2 young children with my husband. We have the cutest bunny, Yuki, in the whole wide world!

We had the most amazing kitty until this past December. Perhaps we'll get another kitty one day when the time is right, but as of now (September 2011) we have a dwarf bunny!
Now enough about me... what about you?
