Crafty Craft!

Hello Friends!
My friend Jen had posted this on her Facebook page, I have taken her up on her offer and in turn, am offering some crafty goodness your way…So here goes…
I invite you to experiment with me in a pay-it-forward concept. I am offering to make something for the first five (5) people who respond to this note and who agree to do the same for five others. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations so please read carefully:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. Whatcha get is whatcha get.
2. What I create will be just for you, with love.
3. It’ll be done this year (2009).
4. I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It may be weird or beautiful. But it will be something real and tangible, not something on the internet.
5. In return, all you need to do is post this text into a note on Facebook or blog of your own and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your note.
6. You will need to send me your mailing address so I can get your item to you.

IMPORTANT: This offer is null and void if I do not see you post your own note to pay this forward.

Kindergarten Quilt

Hiya All! I thought I’d share a few photos of the quilt I made for Sebastians kindergarten class project for the St. Ignatius Auction.  The kids painted the main blocks, and I pieced it all together.  Sherri of BumbleBee Quilting quilted it.  I really love how it turned out, and it brought in $1k for the school!  Pretty great, yea?  I will also post pics of my “Bunch of Squares” quilt, which is happily laying across our bed as I type this as soon as I can.  My mom and sis are requesting some pics of my pregnant belly…and since I am due next month, I best get my mister on top of that stat!

In other crafty news, I am still stash busting my way through all of this yarn here…and am pretty close to finishing my Bartletts sweater.  Douglas requested a crewneck, so easy peasy!  I have also done quite a bit of sewing for the baby, and am really looking forward to my baby shower this coming Saturday.  I never had a baby shower when I was preggers with Sebastian, so this should be fun.
