OH MY STARS AND GARTERS. EdelC sent me such an incredible swap item!
Because I live on the shore of Puget Sound, I spend a lot of time birding & cooking out & camping & contemplating on the shore ... and on a whim I asked for a beach/shore quilt, something to sit on or wrap up in as I watch the sunset, something to eat a picnic lunch on, etc. I thought, who would be crazy enough to make that?
EdelC would be, that's who!
As you will see, the cats have put their paws of approval on the quilt already.
I continue to have photo issues on Crafster, so you can find many more on my flickr:https://flickr.com/photos/14402312@N00/sets/72157677179351103
I love how she incorporated all the parts of the sweater - shoulders, ribbing, yokes, etc. And I love how some pieces are asymmetrical, how the cabling is offset in some squares. I love all the different textures! All the different pieces and patterns. And it is patriotic colors without being obnoxious!
And the funky green backing that is like fleece corduroy. And the hand stitched designs in the squares! And the edge stitching. And the side strips. And and and and and!
I hope to get pictures of it out in the wild this weekend, unless we get another snowstorm...
I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT!!!!
I am snuggling under it right now, with both kitties underneath with me. We are warm and cozy and happy!
THANK YOU EDELC!!!!!!!!
