Quilting Escapes Me

For some or other reason I can just not bring myself to sew this summer.
I like to keep my hands busy, so I thought I'd do a bit of knitting. Tiny knitting since I'm not ready for big knitting projects either.
This was REALLY fun!

Since I don't have any babies to knit for, I listed the little hat on Etsy.

Shameless Plug

I'm really hoping to get back to sewing soon but I have a feeling that, until I can get the munchkin off to college, not much will be happening.

In the mean time, here's something I just added to the Etsy store:

I was asked to create a custom listing for a customer and thought it was a great idea.
It's a "layer cake" (don't think I can officialy use that name) - 30 little 10" x 10" squares of 1930's fabric, all different.

My next post will, hopefully, be a "real" post.

Finally, the winner

I apologize for not announcing the winner of the Go! Baby fabric cutter on Monday as promised.

I had completely forgotten that I had to take my son to college orientation and class signups. One step closer to an empty nest. Sniff, sniff.

It's a very, very pretty campus.
View from the dining hall:

Seen on the walk to the dorm:

Just pretty and green and leafy all around.

Oh right... You want to know who won the drawing!

After sorting through all the "no reply" comments and anonymous comments...

The winner is.....Char!
She has a lovely blog you may want to go have a peep at:
