So I've been busy since my last post. I've had about a week of fabulous days pain-wise. Like the pain has been numb with only shooting when I move the wrong way. Much better than pain all the time. However, today I tried swimming, very bad idea. In pain again. Oh well, one day I'll be better. On my good days, and the days when I've been trying to be in different positions, I've been crafting away so that the boredom doesn't set in. Today, not much crafting, too much pain which is why I'll try to be brief with my blog.
I'm much more visual than a writer, so I'll post lots of photos of my work. I am generally a perfectionist but not when it comes to sewing/crafting. It's supposed to be fun, and I could give a rat's ass if I screw up a little. It's about the journey, not the product.
So the big news is I finished my summer quilt - it has no batting since it's hot here. It's all scraps except the blue and green polka dot material. I also used glow in the dark thread to quilt most of it, which is just a really cool bonus. It's a very fun fun quilt.
instructions for the star I found on youtube from these fabulous ladies in New Zealand (I think). There's 3 parts, so don't forget to watch the other two.
this tutorial to make the portholes. I did mine a little differently though. I had bought a circle cutter from Olfa, so I had to use it. This did cut down on some fabric waste. I love the way the portholes look and feel.
I started this quilt before my blog so sorry, no pics of me making it :(.
Ok, neck hurting, will tell you all about my other projects later...
