geez louise! where have i been? how about in lieu of telling you i just bombard you with a gazillion photos?
i worked on the do. good stitches august quilt a bit and managed to send off blocks to melanie for her october quilt in the nick of time. these are blocks for a trip around the world quilt that used a super nifty trick.
ingrid and i took a trip to the pacific antique mall. she was a very happy baby, what with so much to look at.
i am a magpie for all things sparkly-christmassy.
i stood staring at this painting forever and then decided that i needed to take it home with me. it is now hanging above our bed. i love it.
by the end of the excursion i had one sleepy baby on my hands.
we celebrated halloween by carving pumpkins and dressing ingrid up as a snowdrop. i made the little costume out of felt, though it took me several tries. my first attempt made her look like a kkk grand wizard. you do not need me to tell you how unfortunate that was.
here she is with her peps peeps. terrible photo, i know. but super adorable babies, right?
we spent a lot of time outdoors, at the japanese garden at the arboretum and at seward park. fall has been truly lovely in seattle.
we took ingrid out for her first ethiopian food, though we did all the eating. (the veggie combo is the tastiest deal around.)
we had a terrific little downtown adventure with a visit to the crumpet shop and an afternoon spent wandering around the seattle art museum. crumpets and art are a winning combo.
fabric: michael miller bicycles in citron
fabric: ikea by helen trast
fabric: liz scott painted flowers in cream chartreuse (from the sugar pop collection)
fabric: lotta jansdotter choma in bermuda (from the echo collection)
and i've been continuing to take my weekly photos. today's photo is on the new lotta jansdotter fabric. i am in love with this collection.
it has been ages since i've bought a complete fat quarter set, but i couldn't resist with this one. each and every fabric in this line is just so perfect.
now, if only i could find some time to sew with it!
