Not Quite Quilting...

But at least my sewing machine is practicing for the next quilting project! The skirt is for a Grease-themed party this Saturday. I think I was a 50s girl for Halloween once upon a time, too!

Distracted Again

Once again, it's been far too long since I've blogged. Even worse, I haven't announced the winner of my 5 year blogging anniversary give-away winner! It's lucky Chook from Australia! I will have the mini-quilt in the mail by the end of next week! Here is the label I attached to the quilt:

I did do some sewing in September - 20 bags for the upcoming FinnQuilt event to be held in Vaasa in March 2012. Here they are photographed in the late afternoon autumn sun:

Finally, an admission. Over the past couple years, I've been distracted by knitting, then crocheting. (More info about the on-going challenge here.) In September, I enrolled in a weaving course here in Vaasa. I'm totally smitten and am already considering purchasing a loom!

Don't worry, though, I'm still a quilter, too! Thanks for stopping by!
