Feburary Goddess Girl

Ok so I have been working on another Goddess Girl for my Fairiegoddessmothers quilting group and FINALLY got her finished. I would have had her done MUCH sooner had my cat not pissed all over my fabric stash! I am sorry but I can't help being vulger about it. She really really made me mad at her and fortunately for her I am not the sort to resort to violence (allthough it SERIOUSLY crossed my mind).
So is the block for Feburary...the theme was love.

Eve's Quilt

Well, it's finally done! Quilted and bound. D-U-N DUN!
Brian did a great job picking out the fabric, designing the quilt and doing all of the piecing. When he finished he gave it to me and I added the borders, quilted it (in a 4inch grid) and bound it.
We bound it in red, and it is a little hard to see in the photo, but I assure you it is sharp and totally completes the quilt.
We hope that Eve will enjoy crawling on it and later when she is bigger, snuggling up under it.
Oh, and just for fun, here is a pick of the Kiddo at Christmas (I think she was somewhere around 3 weeks old at the time).

Secret Sister Swap

Well I have finally managed to get my camera and computer together again. Here is a picture of all of the wonderful stuff that my Secret Sister, Dreamspinner, sent to me for the FairieGoddessMothers 'Book Beside My Bed' Swap.
Fortunately for me my Sister was reading MANY books at the time.
I received fabrics that represented several books including the new Harry Potter, Wicked (one of my favorites) and the other two are picture here. I have not started reading either of them yet but they are at the top of my list. I also received some 'bling' as I call it. A little 'R' shaped pendant studded with 'diamonds' I think I am going to put it on my rotary cutter. :)
Oh and then there is the yarn and knitting needles and clip. I guess I am just going to have to learn how to knit! I can crochet my pants off but knitting is a whole new world. I think partly because I have my hands trained to crochet and they have a rather hard time trying to break that pattern when I pick up the knitting needles. I think I'll need to ask my pal Leafy about the best place to start on that since he seems to know a great deal on the subject (you know, published author and all of that).
Oh and I can't forget the chocolate rocks they are good. Well, were good we ate them all :)
So as you can see this is a very generous and kind group I belong to.
