Oh wow, Sonjaboo what a GORGEOUS tin! I want to pet it! I love the orientation on it.

And wdicwg, love the poppies! A great burst of color for a fairy house. I for one am not a pink and frothy person, so my fairies would live in a colorful house like this!

Whew! Well, man, sickness has knocked me out this winter. So glad I have March for finishing up!

I am mailing out my Altered Tin swap package this week, taking a few days to clean and organize, then it's all systems go on finishing this! I got my printer working so I can print out patterns, and slept ALL WEEKEND through a few days of snow and ice. Lovely to gaze out my window at falling snow, with my cats curled up on me, knowing I didn't have to go anywhere! And today I only coughed ONCE.

Woke up this morning to discover my 20 pound cat had stolen the quilt from where it was "safely" put away, and had wrapped himself up in it. Smugly snoring away, so warm you could see the cartoon heat waves coming off him!  Grin Cheesy

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! Wink

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:

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! Wink 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!!!!!!!!

Ok, I finally have everything plotted out, and I have all the patterns I need, and all my resources. Whew! I am about 20% finished, just have to wrap up my altered tea tin swap project, then all I have is this swap.

I am really happy with my plans!!!

Lately I have been struck down by the Ick going around ... but back to feeling human and no more fever dreams. Whew! I have all day Friday for finishing some gluing (I left it until I was no longer having fever shakes - I am already a klutz around glue when I'm healthy!), and if things are dry, I will mail out on Saturday morning!
