A Couple Finishes for Friday

Last month I finished a little addition for my desk. I bought a mini-charm of  Kate Spain's Daydream at a quilt show last summer and sewed them together some time in the fall. I quilted it earlier this year and finally put binding on it. It currently sits on my desk with a new plant bought a couple weeks ago. It's nice to look up from the computer/ sewing machine and see it there.

Finished mat. 

Another finish in June was finally adding an About Me page to the blog. It only took me 6 years. And it's kind of wordy but I like it. I made some collages using PicMonkey. It was fun to go back through pictures and decide what to include.

Pictures of me and my kids. I guess I'll have to keep changing this one as they grow up but these are some of my favourites.

Some of my quilts that I love. The postage stamp quilt on the left was gifted to my husband's boss when we left Idaho. It was hard to give away. You can read more about it here - I mention in the blog post that we kept it but later changed our minds and gave it away. The middle quilt is my Jelly Roll Bargello which I wrote a tutorial for that can be found here. This quilt is currently on my daughter's bed. The quilt on the right I called a Charmed Log Cabin as the middle is a charm square. I had taken pictures planning on writing a tutorial for it but I never got around to it. Perhaps this fall? You can read more about the quilt here. I still love it and use it.

Knitting texture. Passerine on the left, Wedgewood shawl in the middle and cables from a vest on the right. I think deciding which knitting pictures to include was the hardest.

And some pictures of me. On the left is me knitting on the swing in our backyard. I love knitting out there but don't get to do it very often. Wearing my Flatiron cowl in the middle and my feet in Lake Michigan, September 2013 during our first family vacation as a family of 5.
