Whaaaaa? Too cool.

Via Etsy's Spinthread. Unfortunately she doesn't have any currently for sale -- I got these images out of the sold section. Hopefully she'll be back with more!
Anna Dewey, I thought about you when I saw this picture.

Beginning of the Phillip's quilt...a University of Alabama-themed color story. This pattern has proven to be a great way to use scrap-sized pieces of fabric.

The dandelion kids quilt I made about a year ago has finally found a body to warm. Keishly Richardson was born to my first cousin around the holidays, officially taking the pressure off my brother and I to start having grandchildren. I used a fabric stamp pad and alphabet stamps to personalize the corner. And I can't wait for her to break it in!

A preliminary sketch of the Phillip's baby quilt. I was inspired after watching Sleepy Hollow, the quilt on Ichabod Crane's bed was fantastic and exactly the triangle motif I was looking for. Turns out the design is called Japanese Triangles.

Jenny started these dresses and I'm in the process of finishing them. We're both finding the joy in collaborating: she had gotten to a block in working on them and I received a project halfway finished! I love all the fabrics she chose; very girly and youthful yet fresh and classic.

A little eyelet detail added to the bottom of my knitted cardigan in the making. I've finished the body and now I have the collar and sleeves left. I'm amazed at how simple this project is considering how complicated it seems, but the catch is that there's no way to make it go any faster. It's such a manual process and there's nothing you can keep doing when your hands start to hurt.

I also added some ribbing to finish the bottom.
