I just posted on the Spring Fling Round Robin site about the 4 seasons swap quilt I received today, and the one I was ready to mail out. After posting, I looked at the blog, and realized that -- duh! -- it was two different swaps and I had posted on the wrong site! Thank heavens for that "delete" button.
So here we go again. Today I received this lovely "summer" quilt from Karlie, along with a sweet assortment of ocean-colored goodies. I am so impressed by anyone who can hand-sew all those hexes together... I tried hand-sewing a Lemoyne star for a Nearly Insane block a couple of years ago, and it pretty much looked like I had done it blind-folded and with my right hand (I'm left-handed, of course -- LOL -- can't you tell?)And, I finished up my summer quilt which will be mailed off on Monday when I get back from Long Beach -- anyone else going to Long Beach this weekend?
I'm calling this "summer in my Japanese garden". It's going cross-country, and I hope that *** likes it, although I'm always just a little bit worried that I've made the wrong thing -- style, colors, etc -- for my partner in these swaps. I think round robins are easier in that sense, because the entire weight of the project isn't on my shoulders!
Gotta leave you with the latest picture of Bucky -- I couldn't believe the way he was sleeping the other day. p.s. anyone want a really ugly sofa?
