Catch Up

In the interest of brevity, I’ve decided to post a few quick things (and by a few I mean way too many but it’ll make me catch up) from the last few months. I’m still painting, scraping, taping and moving things around like a wild woman but the house is starting to come together. That’s a good thing because I’m tired of the dust, and if we (by we I really mean “I”) don’t finish soon-ish things may get ugly around here.

I managed to make two quilts for some special girls in my life. The quilts  are for sisters so they have a lot of the same fabrics but they aren’t duplicates of each other:
