Over at Cat Patches it's time for the monthly round-up of what we started in August. Sometimes I'm surprised at how much I have done, but not this month, I think I've been a little lazy, blame it on summer.
First a little update, my MIL loved her quilt, I had to steal this pic from Facebook.
David made of video of my MIL and SIL draping the quilt over the couch, deciding that the couch was old and shabby, so they went and bought a new couch. The video is a mess with different angles or I'd post it, the whole thing is hilarious and I'm taking no responsibility for the new couch.
The only quilt I made this month was this
This started as something completely different, but I like the direction it took. Making those unstructured log cabins is so much fun and uses up a bunch of scraps. I used my EQ to check color placement and just scribbled stars in, the wonky little guys that resulted is when the whole quilt took a serious turn to whimsical.
One of my closest friends came for a visit and saw me using a beanie baby for a pin cushion (yes, I feel bad everytime I stick a pin in him), we laughed about how I need a voodoo doll for my pins.
Right after she left, this came in the mail with all kinds of info about how voodoo dolls can be made out of love to bring good things to the person they are made for :)
She made him entirely by hand with seeds and moss from her yard, she even pulled thread out of the burlap to sew him together. Her husband came up with idea on how to make him bend. Each color pin has meaning, so of course I'm not going to use him for a pin cushion since I don't want to mess up the good vibes he brings. I'll still be using the poor lizard.
As a thank you I made her this
I actually had this in mind before the voodoo doll. I wanted to make one for me, but I knew as soon as she saw it she'd ask where her's was, when she lived up the street she would just "borrow" things like that, now I make her one, LOL.
That's it for August, I really have been lazy. I hope you'll join in the fun or just check out what everyone else has been up to. Barbara's New FO's is always so inspiring, no pressure and you meet the nicest people.
