I'm moving right along on the gift thing... finished up the last 3 "Sassy Bags" today, for a sister-in-law and a friend and her daughter -- hope they like them! Yesterday I found out that I drew another sister-in-law's name for the gift exhange on my husband's side of the family, so I'm thinking about whipping up some placemats of some sort.
This next photo is the row robin I just sent off -- I did the row of Darting Birds at the top. It was one of those blocks I had looked at for years but hadn't ever made one -- I think they're pretty cute! I keep thinking that one day I'll go through my copies of all the "Around the Block" books and make one of each... ha ha ha.
And finally -- my Braggie! After two of my local friends submitted quilts to PIQF without telling me -- and got accepted -- I was really jealous. So, I submitted my Nearly Insane quilt to Road to California at the last minute, and just received my acceptance notice a couple of days ago! I'm totally jazzed, of course, since it's the first time I've tried to put something in a juried show. And, it's a good excuse to go to the show for the first time. Any of you out there in blog-land planning to attend? I'll probably go down on Saturday and come back Sunday afternoon, late enough that I can pick up my quilt and avoid the extra mailing charges.
