all finished. this quilt top was completed before ivy was born. it has only taken 4 years to quilt and bind it. not too bad.
i hand quilted with embroidery floss and i love it. it turned out so pretty.
the back is cool too but i don't have a picture for you at this moment.
for mothers day i got myself a long grey skirt, it's real great. i decided i needed a nice top to wear with it to church the next day, but who am i kidding i have no stylish clothes. sooo, i decided to "dress up a shirt" one night while watching a certain movie featuring johnny knoxville and his friends. apparently i may have been a bit distracted by the movies subject matter... maybe. whatever the reason, my shirt that was copying this one:
(yes, it's a onesie but i thought it may look cool.)
looked like this when i first put it on:
but when worn for longer than 5 seconds it looked like this:
luke laughed at me when i put it on. like, a full on belly laugh at you.
crafting failure. needless to say i didn't wear it to church as planned.
apparently it didn't get me down too bad cause my motha and i just finished a huge, huge radical quilt top for my bed. more to come on that later... but it is going to be shipped out to be quilted first cause it's too big to do with my lil ole machine.
so, i guess i just need to stick to quilts as my craft of choice- which is good cause they get so much use here on a hot humid tropical island.
