In the past month, Elise turned 4! As she likes to tell me, she's a big girl now. :)
I've been working on the string quilt-as-you-go. Overall I'm pleased with it, considering this is my first time with this method. I can see myself doing more. I changed my mind on what I thought the layout would be, and went with this design. It's a little tedious joining rows together, but when I consider that it will be totally finished without quilting a huge top (or sending/paying to have it quilted by someone else), it's worth it. And I can see ways to make the next one a bit easier.
Here's a picture prior to joining the top two rows to the bottom section. I really need to put side borders on for some more width, but I'm somewhat ready to leave it at this size. I'm setting it aside for a week or two to see what I decide on.
There's a lot to say when I don't post for a month, isn't there???
Last but not least, I made a couple of Barbie dresses this week from free instructions on the internet. They had more cleavage than I particularly wanted, so they both were turned around and put on backwards. They're wrap dresses, so it worked fine. :)
Okay, that's it for now. Have a good week everyone.
