Here is a peek at the back of the patchwork. I love the way you can windmill the seams between the squares. I'm pretty sure that this will be be a pillow cover once quilted. But it was fun and I want to do more.... and I just have so many squares cut out from when I was ambitious enough to think I might actually make a full-sized quilt for the first time. Not by hand, mind you.
Well. We'll just have to see.
On another note, I've been exploring this virtual terrain and I'll take a moment to link to some of the craft/artist/mom blogs so I don't forget how to get there.
le train fantôme
My mom has always maintained that art and life are all mixed up. This is true. I have witnessed it. I am party to it. I think that this is one of the things that makes a really good blog: the jumble that is the creative process vs. the balance that is family life.
I will strive to do a better job of representing that balance here. My other blog, the first one, really focused on the development of my family - my pregnancy, my child, my marriage and my extended family and friends. It now serves as a photo update for those looking for an Everett fix.
So. What to do. Continue with two blogs? Hmmm. We'll see. I probably will continue to post a photo a week or so on the first blog but the bulk of my life and how it fits together with arts, crafts, parenting, partnering, home-making, and so on will be covered here.
Both blogs need a makeover anyway.
Oh, and also...
The other day I clicked my way over to mom-101. While not a craft blog, she is certainly very crafty with her words and I especially am enjoying her political musings. I am not able to vote because I am Canadian, but I am as immersed as anyone else living in the USA during the 2008 election coverage.
Oh my dear Canada. Stay focused on the Olympics and other global happenings..
