Stripe-y goodness

Look! I'm alive and creating! (synonyms? I think so...) I figured out how to purl! And how to make yummy stripes!

Speaking of yummy stripes, I'm completely in love with the ripple blanket that Alicia at Posie Gets Cozy is making. Every time she posts a picture I want to go down to the garage and pull out the yarn stash. Except that my yarn stash does not contain those yummy colors Alicia's using. And my yarn stash is from back in the day when most craft stores offered a choice between icky scratchy acrylic and nasty scratchy acrylic. And I need another project like I need another hole in my head. So...I'll just keep admiring Alicia's ripple-y goodness.

I have been puttering around at one crafty thing or another all weekend. There's even been quilting:

I've promised a new piece for Sew Uniquely You's contemporary quilt show March 10, so I finally got busy quilting and embellishing a fused top that's been hanging around for a while. Hopefully I've worked up enough momentum to keep up with the making. I missed it.

You've missed the creating...we've missed your work.

Can you post more about the quilt show - maybe a link to more information?
