I think my pendulum has finally swung back more to center. Photoshop has finally taken a back seat and I finished a couple of sewing/crochet projects recently.
This quilt started out as a lap quilt for me, but as soon as it started coming together and although I LOVE how it came out, I knew it had to go to my husband's parents. The colors are SO his mom. Bright and cheery. The front is made of 9X9 inch square scraps and the border is 9 inches wide cut from a vintage sheet I thrifted a while back.
The back is mainly another vintage sheet but the row of blocks is made from more scrap fabrics. It was actually my husband's idea to do the red polka dot border and I think it came out just wonderfully.
Here's a little close-up of the quilting. I free motion quilted circles of random sizes in the center section and quilted the straight lines in the yellow border. I hope they love this quilt as much as I do!
My second project is a receiving blanket made from a yard of flannel and then cotton fibre crocheted around the border. I followed this tutorial via Sew Mama Sew and I just think it's so sweet. I cannot wait to give this to one of my many friends who are pregnant right now!
