What I've Been Up to Lately:

This is a preview of a project I have been working for at least 6 weeks. It's a quilt made out of batik fat quarters and plain black fabric. It's 100% triangles, so it is driving me NUTS! It's easily the most challenging pattern I have chosen yet. I have decided to take a long break from it- especially being that I have many gifts I want to make for friends who've had babies recently.

I made this little guy on Saturday night. It was a challenge and didn't come out wonderful, but I am still pleased with it. It was difficult to work with socks that had a lot of elastic. Making these little sock animals is a lot of fun because you can improvise (i.e. it's not a disaster if you make a mistake) and it's a very quick craft (2-3 hrs. from start to finish.)

All last week I worked on a baby quilt, I finished the top on Friday and will post a picture of it after it's received by my friend and her son.
