Embroidery I did from one of my favorite Hayao Miyazaki films :)

This is probably the most improv-ish quilt I've made. I had a general idea of what I wanted it to look like, but most of the blocks weren't planned out.
Their names and their wedding date
The back, once again very improv. I had two left over blocks that I decided to incorporate with the embroidery on the back.

Just a little snapshot of what I've been working on. I finished some bunting that I hung on my bed.
My ironing corner. :) Trying to finish my spiderweb quilt before I die. (No really it's taking me forever, next time I am doing a patchwork quilt with big squares. Like really big squares) I'm also working on my sister's wedding quilt. (below) Trying different layouts to see which one I like.
I am praying that I can finish both these quilts before the end of August. (hopefully it won't take me longer than that) >.<

In the middle of my gradutation ceremony my parents were told that our house was on fire. No one was in the house when it happened, thank the Lord. But all our stuff wasn't so lucky. The fire started in the top middle bedroom and its really only the second floor that looked bad.. The rest of of the house looks fine, but there is a lot of water and smoke damage. We are all fine and doing great, we found a beatiful house to rent while our old house is being gutted and rebuilt.
And I know this is supposed to be a blog about crafty stuff, so here is my smokey crafty stuff (now pitched) . My sewing machine and fabric were in another part of the house, so all that is saved. My sewing machine may need to be cleaned (because of the smoke). (wince) I pray it doesn't take that long. My hands are just itching to sew and hand sewing pillow covers really isn't fun.

So, this is how far I've gotten on the spider web quilt. I am really loving how its turning out. Did I mention that?
I'm hoping to make it big enough to cover my bed, but my fondness for making these blocks may wear off after awhile. I dont really want this to become another UFO (unfinished object)

I incorporated some of my hand sewn hexagons in this pillow. I've been really inspired to make a quilted pillow (just look at my flickr favorites) and I wanted to try it out. It turned out better than I thought it would. I was expecting it to turn out a mangled and unrecognizable mess. But I think everyone can tell its a pillow....at least I hope so..... Hopefully no one out there is thinking "What a lovely toaster cover" or something like that.
Used some of my favorite japanese fabric (that I've been hoarding) for the back. It just happened to coordinate with some polka dot fabric I had on hand. Sorry if this post is more babble-y than usual. I haven't been very wordy in my recent posts, so I think its ok
