Ok, I know. I'm kind of a jerk for basking in the sunshine when everyone seems to be getting snowed on. This time of year makes me feel SO lucky to live here in Northern California. But don't worry, I'll want to swap places with you when it's 114 degrees in a few months. And you can rub it in my face when it's only like, 80.
This weekend I worked on the nani iro & silk almost whole cloth quilt. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I couldn't get very many photos of it, as I had to go to work & the ground was damp. And I was borrowing someone elses camera. Boo. But I'm thinking about writing up the recipe for it. I'm not sure I'd call it a pattern..it was more of a little of this, a little of that & voila. One of the most wonderful throws ever! I can't wait to hear how it's new owner likes it! I think I might treat myself to some fabric to make one...maybe the navy blue?!
So many exciting things are going on!
