Thanks for listening to my last rant...and thanks for the good advice. Until I can connect with someone who can show me what I am doing wrong I have set aside my Lone Star and decided to move on. I guess that makes me a real quilter....I now have one WIP and one UFO and I'm going to start a new project. Wow....three things on the go at the same time. I'm not sure how I'll manage (hee hee)!
So a young couple that I know is due to have their first baby in June and I am going to make a baby quilt for them. Because I don't know whether it is a boy or girl, my fabrics have to be rather non gender specific. And I asked their mom/mother-in-law if they would prefer light pastels or bright colors and she said definately bright colors. So here's what I have chosen. My dear husband says it looks rather Eastery). I guess he's right but we'll see what it looks like when it all comes together. That's the exciting part about making a new something isn't it?
In other news...I am excitedly looking forward to going to one of our local sewing stores, Creative House, on Saturday where Monika Kinner-Whalen of 'mysweetprairie.blogspot.ca' will be hosting a demonstration. Check out her blog....the things that lady produces are absolutely phenomenal! (Sorry, I don't know how to do links yet but at least you have her address)
As for a weather update...who can keep up...we have gone from spring to winter to spring to fallish weather all in the past three days!
