Team Skywalker

I'm still totally having fun with my screen printing.

For Halloween, the nurses on my shift decided to dress in a Star Wars theme. But I was a little lazy (and not much of a Star Wars fan), so I screen printed a baseball raglan shirt with Team Skywalker instead. A copout, I know, but I stuck with the theme! But I found a Star Wars-esque font and everything!

My friend at work loved the print so much, that she had me print one of her own shirts. She actually MADE this t-shirt! So crafty & courageous! Even I don't attempt to tackle knits! And good thing I didn't mess it up, phew!

I will be so proud when she wears it!

Something Like That

I was so inspired by this post (it's even my computer wallpaper!), I got right up from the sofa and started putting together scraps from my scrap bin. I didn't think too hard, I just tried to stick to a couple colors. I'm still totally in love with the original, but I gave it a shot.

It's become something like this:

Stay tuned for completion (but give me about 2 months or so...).

Thank You Quilt

It's been one month exactly since I last posted...sorry. I know you've heard that before, but... Anyhow, I have been working on something (a couple things, maybe), but I just haven't been able to show you until now :)

D's mom threw us a lovely engagement party in New York this summer, and I wanted to express my appreciation. She loves blue and loves butterflies, so I simply had to build a quilt around this MoMo Wonderland fabric - it was perfect! (You've seen it before in pink)

It didn't start out as a zig-zag quilt, but things seldom end up the way I set out to make them. I love it though, and I hope she does too!

Between about 1:00 and 1:12, we get a tiny bit of sunshine in our apartment. I had to capture it while it lasted.

And yes, I realize I'm an ungrateful wretch as the party was in July and I'm just now giving her this quilt. I know....
