Fitting It All In

This is me at my desk last weekend, which is where I've been during any moment that I haven't been at work, at pilates (strengthening that core), or at a planned outing in the last 4 weeks.  

You can catch a glimpse of what I've been working on: Card Swap cards!  This year, I'll be honest, I've bitten off a bit much.  They are going to be amazing cards, but wow, they have already taken hours upon hours!!!

Below is a photo of me, Haley, and baby Indigo in upstate New York last month, and the quilt that Haley and I worked together on for awhile for her.  It was the first time I've made a quilt totally of someone else's design, Denyse Schmidt. We loved the colors.  The title of the quilt is Ice Pops, and in the instructions, the colors are not orange, yellow, brown, etc, but pineapple, banana, sand, and coconut, to name a few.  We loved that.  You can also see the back, which Haley and I designed to use up some of the leftover fabric we had.
