Besides making delicious Hummingbird cake, I've been doing a little of this and a little of that. I think I mentioned that I finished Maddie's quilt -- my first log cabin style quilt. She was sick the day I finished it, and was very eager to wrap herself up in it, but I managed to snap a few photos.
Here you can see the backing I found, and also see the simple quilting pattern I chose. I've found that this size quilt is manageable on my little Pfaff, but anything bigger and the quilting becomes a serious chore. If I stick with this quilting thing -- and it appears that it is rapidly becoming my creative outlet of choice -- I may need to look into a larger machine or something.
I've also been reading -- *a lot* -- so I need to do a post soon on the books I've read in the last few weeks before I forget them. I have found that that blog has been my best source for keep track of my reading habits. I've joined every book reading site (goodreads and such), tried a written journal, and even tried keeping a spreadsheet, but the blog seems to be the only place I religiously keep updated.
Here's my little sickie, now nearly recovered, sitting on the warm radiator, wrapped in her new quilt. It's always satisfying when a recipient of your crafty endeavors loves what you have made for them.
