I had a lovely vacation in Goa last week. Our anniversary gift to each other. My daughter went bonkers in the pool which was a consolation for me. The sea was kinda rough so i couldn't let her go in. I am totally refreshed and dying to get back to my embroidery and quilting.
After agonising for ages on what colors to use for the Birdie Stitches stitch along (if you follow that stitch along, you would know how hopelessly behind i am on it.......block 7 is out already). I am going to make a redwork version of it. My decision was made when i saw this beautiful fabric with a warli print in red on it. Warli is a folk form of art and it looks absolutely lovely. I just need to decide now whether it will be a cushion cover for each month or a full quilt or 3 different wall quilts for me, my sister in law and my ma in law. So whatever i decide to make it into....i will show some pictures real soon.

I am participating in a needle case swap on flickr which means i have to think how i can make a pretty one for my partner. There is also going to be a Quilt Along hosted by Crazy Mom Quilts that i am eager to join. Also let me not forget the State Flower Quilt Along which would come to it's conclusion soon. That is one project that i have immensely loved and enjoyed stitching.  So i guess that's that and since i have listed out all my 'To Do' things so publicly i would be motivated enough to finish them all.

Here's something that i did finish though.......a mug rug or a small wall hanging....whichever way my niece wants to use it.....it's her gift before i stitch up another pretty damsel for her on demand :).
