Shaky Handwriting

I've decided against adding any words or letters to the top from yesterday. I'd like to use a dark purple binding to frame it, but I don't have enough fabric left, so I might let the project marinate for a little while before finishing it up.

Looking around at the Liberated Amish Get Together site, I was inspired to get back to a project I started in another one of Tonya's online events back in September 2007! I'm making a quilt for myself (for once) with place names of all the places I've lived. It's a long list! After finishing up all the short ones, I'm trying to move onto the 10+ letter places without making them so large that they dwarf the others. My 'handwriting' was a little shaky with the first one after such a long break, but I'm quite satisfied with the next one. As always, thanks to Tonya for her tutorial!

I was so inspired by Clare's quilt for Tonya's Liberated Amish Get Together that although I didn't join in back in January, I woke up this morning and got this top (it's 36"x54") finished in one day! It was quite a marathon, but I just love the result! Thanks for the inspiration Clare and Tonya!

I'm Still Here!

I've been helping a friend learn to quilt recently, and it's meant that my machine has been busy, but I've been using the time to finish up a bunch of almost finished knitting projects. Here's one long-lingering quilty finish, as well. I started this quilt back in August and just did a simple loopy thing for the quilting. I'm still not sure which side is the front!
