right now i'm finishing up a sweater that i started back in August 2010, so it'll be another slow week blog-wise.
I was very fortunate to win 1st prize of September's Celebrate Color finals in handstitching! i received the entire Alphabet collection from Penguin and Fish. thanks to Rachel for hosting such a great contest. hopefully i can get something cute stitched up this month. we just found out that Spicy's brother and his wife are expecting their first, so there is no shortage of baby stuff to work on.
the red prints in Sugar Creek finally came to my joann's. i bought half yards of everything except for 2 yards of the large floral.
i like this collection more than picnic and fairgrounds. it's a little outside my color comfort zone but i think it'll be perfect for my mom. i've been debating over which pattern i should do. right now i'm leaning towards Small Plates from the Practical Guide to Patchwork. i know that my mother would probably prefer something more traditional rather than wonky. if you had this stack of prints, what would you make?
