This Week in 2012, Week 31

Looking back at this week I still have nothing to show as a finish, but lots of fun has been happening and I have been learning a lot about iphone art. Here are a few of the photos I have played with:

These next two photos I snagged from Canadian Abroad's Instagram photos. They are shots from her  vacation. 

I especially like this one from the cheese monger at the farmer's market.

I pulled out an old UFO and I decided to turn it into a quilt for Katie's 100 Quilts for Kids campaign. If you have an interest in making a quilt for a child in need check out her post. Last year I wanted to make one and then my mom was injured and threw my world upside down, so this year I wanted to make sure that I joined in the group's efforts.
Swim, Bike, Quilt
Last year because I was so busy with my mom, the lovely Amorette, offered to make a quilt to donate in honor of my mom and me. This year, I am proud to be able to make a quilt and I will probably donate it to Children's Hospital Cancer ward.

Did you use your 25% off everything coupon at Joann's this weekend? Not only did I use my coupon but I used my birthday gift card and was able to get all this for only $8.12! That's 5 yards of DS fabrics, 2-20" pillow forms and a new 6-1/2"x24-1/2" ruler ( I knelt on my old one and broke it).

I plan to have a big show and tell tomorrow. I finally finished binding my Swoon quilt. It's all washed and crinkly from the dryer. I hope I can get some not too sunny shots of it tomorrow. It's supposed to be 105'F here.

Thanks for stopping by,

$8 for all that!! We can't buy one metre of DS for $8, even when its on special! It nearly makes me weep! I was looking at buying a new 12.5" square ruler in Spotlight (the equivalent of Joann's) the other day-$25!
I love what you have done with the photos-little works of art!

Oh boy you can probably see the green haze of jealousy hovering above me all the way from California caused by your JoAnn's haul!!!

Sara said...

Great purchases at Joann's!!! Love that quilt. It looks so soft and cuddly!

Create some shade with foam boards to take a pic of the quilt perhaps.

I love the changes to the photos! Which apps have you been using?

I went to my closet JoAnn's store on Sat and was very disappointed for several reasons: the store was in a complete shambles and I was there just after they opened, they had only a small amount of the interfacing that I wanted and didn't have a couple other things that I wanted... sigh! Your haul looks great and reminds me that I need a new one of the long rulers, too!

Great Joann's haul! And thanks for making my photos look better than they are.
