Isn't this awesome? My niece who has never been taught to sew made her own ipod touch covers. Seriously, that kid is self taught and look at the great job she did! Yup, just an insanely proud Auntie sitting here enjoying the amazingly talented family.

I think this is a really cool idea. I'm taking the process pledge which means that I won't be displaying just finished quilts but will be talking about what goes into making them and showing them along the way. Yes, this is basically what I am doing now, but now there's a pledge. I'm like the boy scouts but without the youthful idealism!

Want to look at 363 pictures of someone else's vacation? Well, then today is your lucky day. I've narrowed them down but haven't put captions on them yet. I think for the most part they are self-explanatory but would be happy to provide answers to any questions. Here they are: Holland pictures.
In sad quilting news, I am taking in my machine to get serviced tomorrow. It will be gone for two weeks. Scandalous, I know, but since The Buchli's are visiting starting on Saturday, I would probably be busy with other activities anyway. Still, I probably need to get a back up machine for this situation.

I'm back from my vacation to Belgium and the Netherlands. The trip was fantastic with gorgeous scenery, and delicious food - including lots of chocolate and beer. I've got tons of pictures but need to sort through them so I probably won't get them published anytime soon. I'll try for today, but jet lag and the cold from the depths of hell that I inevitably caught while on vacation are wearing me out. For now, something pretty. I went to a lovely quilt store in Amsterdam which features Dutch reproduction fabrics. Sadly Happily, I spent way too much money and picked up some gorgeous fat quarters. I'm now having to decide what to do with all this. I'm leaning towards doing a variation of a pinwheel block (some version or a double pinwheel) and working these colors into them. Of course I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any to offer!
