long distance stitches

i mailed three quilts back to their owners in new york this week. i'm proud to say there arrived safe and sound!

two belonged to Victoria of Bumble Beans fame. 

she has much better pictures in her blog post about them. i'm jealous of her natural side lighting!

third belonged to mary....

as i told her, i secretly wanted her to 'forget' she sent it (yeah- fat chance) so i could keep it. i'm a sucker for anything fassett.

check out her backing! i love a good woven!

she sent me an email with a link where i could get it! on sale too!! i'm thinking i'll use it on the back of the quilt i plan on making with the FQs from this post....

when i was at Tiny Stitches this week, i spied this woven in the sale bin and used it on the back of one of my quilts. blog post coming soon :)

also, i finally got around to making a (extremely belated) christmas present for my mailwoman....hey better late than never. i used my Easy Pleasy Tote tutorial. i fussy cut the motifs to better focus them along the bottom.

didn't it turn out beautiful! she really liked it. now i want one for myself, and lord knows, i need another tote like i need another hole in my head....

p.s. i sent an email to the lady i took the baby squirrels to ask how they are doing and i'm happy to report they are growing fast and getting into all sorts of 'squirrely' trouble.


  1. All 3 are really fun and happy quilts!

  2. thanks Doll! They look fabulous!! Happy to have them home to snuggle under! Your awesome!
