crafting as chore

I’ve been something of a crafting machine lately. I’m still trying to finish up some quilts that I started last summer, which involve cats, dragons, deer and flamingos. Not together, however. That’d be too much even for me. At this point they are very late christmas gifts, but I’m hoping to have them all done by the end of the month. They’re on the back burner until the end of the week while I hurry to finish this beauty up by Friday. I’m gifting it to a coworker who is gifting it to his partner. It’s my end of the trade that got me out of least favorite job duty.

I did take a short break from the furious knitting to sort through my vintage sheet stash and select a few prints to contribute to vintage sheet fat quarter swap that rosey little things is hosting. I could seriously sort and fold my sheet collection all day. I love the smell and rediscovering prints I forgot I even had. This swap has encourage me to finally cut into a few prints that I’ve been hoarding for a while. The majority of my vintage bedsheets are actually still in one piece and I am hoping this swap will be the motivation I need to get started on quilt with all the beautiful vintage fabric.

Oh, and while running errands on Saturday I ran into a crochet superstar at the LYSLinda Perrman! I owe her an email, so I better get on that before I forget again.
