Quilt #3, as yet un-named.

After several attempts to upload the pictures I'm going to share, I finally figured out where they went. Apparently my digital camera has gone haywire and just sent the photos into whichever folder it felt like at the time. Well, at least I found them.

So, by now I think I've mentioned that I'm in the process of working on another quilt. And since I have no plans for it to be a gift, or for me to keep it, I'm taking my time on it. I think I'm up to a month spent on it, now. But, it's coming along. Anyway, the quilt is purple. I've only used two fabrics so far, but I do want to add a border, so I will be using a third and probably a fourth and fifth for the back and the binding. I like using different patterns for that, so we'll see how that goes. I'm hoping to sell this quilt. It's going to be a pinwheel quilt, and here's some peaks of the fabrics I'm using and how the blocks are turning out.

The fabric that looks kinda white from here is actually gold and yellow.

So that's the quilt. I've got a spring one after I finish this one. And in the spirit of spring, here's a photo I took at the Smithsonian in DC, they had a Darwin Orchid exhibit, so here's a photo from that. They're my favorite kind of flower/plant. I've actually had two of them, but I have killed them both. I don't know what I do wrong, but I know it's me. It's not the plant. They're great.

Other than all of that, I've been just trying to keep busy. I, like every other American out there, am on a job hunt and that's of course, a depressing thing, but I'm lucky I have great friends and family.

And as I sit here, typing this, my room is begging to be straightened up. I've got blankets and papers and cups everywhere. It really is a disaster. But I bought a red card stock paper from Michael's earlier today and I think I'm going to get to work on making a valentine for someone. That sounds like more fun, doesn't it? Yes, I think I will do that. If it turns out well, I'll post a photo of that as well, now that I have semi-figured out where my camera was spitting my photos.

Anyway, have a great weekend! And if you happen to live on the East Coast like I do, make sure to enjoy the nice weather we're supposed to get tomorrow!
