What's on the go:

- My wonky stars quilt (my first foray into quilting, inspired by Jenny!). At the quilt retreat a few weeks ago I finally got the top pieced together. This week I hand-stitched around all the stars with variegated thread, about the weight of embroidery floss.  Next up: I want to echo-quilt in white around all the stars.


- Pink square in a square (not sure on the name!) quilt. I have so much pink!  All from stash.  These blocks went together so fast! I chain-pieced just a couple at a time, during naptimes.  I'll probably move them around a bit more before sewing them together.


And one finished item!  My sister gave me a couple of bolts of tulle, and I had this black/white polkadot organza on the shelf from another project.  I'll be posting a tutorial for this circle skirt style tutu.  (excuse my crummy photos and bad lighting today!)  This has been nearly done for several weeks - today I finally had time to sew the ribbon on the hem.
