It’s Official

I finally made up a new batch of business cards for the blog, and after my name, I listed, “Knitter, Spinner, Quilter, Beader, All-Around Multi-Crafter.”

For a woman who always said, “I do just about any craft except for quilting,” it’s a big deal to make that declaration. I guess now I have to start saying, “I do just about any craft except for scrapbooking.” Only I’m afraid that might guarantee I’ll become a scrapbooker, and I just don’t need to get into that stashing opportunity, LOL

Just to prove that the Quilter declaration isn’t a fluke, I made another set of squares for my Bento Box wallhanging yesterday.

QIP: Bento Box Wallhanging, Squares 1-4

I know this is actually the second set of four made for the wallhanging, but since the first set got re-purposed as a pillow, these will count as squares 1-4 for the quilt.

This is the first set of Bento Box squares made using the new seam allowance guide that I wrote about a few weeks ago, and they came out with perfect 1/4″ seams. All four of these squares are 8 inches, just as they’re supposed to be. Bodes well for the rest of the wallhanging!

NH Sheep & Wool

Gryphon and I will be going up Saturday morning. There’s been a bloggers’ meetup announced over at Carole Knits – Saturday at noon, outside the Roby Building, facing the Goat Barn. Hope to see some of you there!

Oh, cool quilt!

I think I’m safe from scrapbooking, but you never know.

For me it would be scrapbooking too. I think I won’t like myself much if I ever start that. Gorgeous quilt square!

There are too many festivals. I’d love to come to the NH one someday. Maybe next year …
