Woo hoo! Over here!

Yes, it's been too long. I admit: I suck at updating this blog. Oh, who am I kidding? I suck at updating the RMQG blog, too. I guess I was not cut out to be a blogger. Oh well. But photos!

First is my new cutting table from IKEA. It's supposed to be for the kitchen, but it works great as a cutting table because it's counter-height. And look at all the drawers!

 Here's an in-progress photo of a small quilt I made for a high school friend that I reconnected with on Facebook. It makes me happy.
 Over the holidays, I realized I needed another gift for my father-in-law. So I took a photograph that he had taken and printed it out on fabric. Then I quilted it. Here, the binding is taking up too much of the photo (this is from before I had done the hand-stitching), but you get the idea. I think it came out pretty fantastic! I may try this with other photos in the future.
