Today

I quilted the Mardi Gras wall hanging today.
I did feathers.
I'm not all that good at them, but I made it happen with yellow thread. 
I'm in a pincushion swap.
Look what I got from Norway!
It is so pretty.

Summary of trip to Galveston & postcards

This is what I worked on in Galveston.
3 pillows, 1 table topper, 1 towel, 1 Mardi Gras wall hanging, & 1 quilt top started.
So, I think that wasn't so bad for accomplishments. 
Kayenderes sent me a Valentines' card.
I love the doily. 
Miriam sent me an Asian postcard.
I love her detail.

Quilting is more fun than Housework has us working on scraps.


I was working on the BOM from my scrap drawers.

I'm trying to follow the designer's colors but use my scraps.
I had to buy a brown on my vacation because I didn't cut one of the colors while at home.

Midweek matters

Quilt Fabrication has a check in on Wednesdays called Midweek Matters.
I've been working on pillows while in Galveston. 
I finished the first diamond EPP project that I started when I was in Houston for the Festival.
I put it on the dishtowel for the 4th of July.
I tried my hand at hand quilting this too.
Not the best of stitches, but it will hold it on the towel.

Crocheting

Not a great photo, but it shows the huge hexagon afghan I finished yesterday.
I think this is why I've not completed so much quilting this year.
DH loves it.
