A mini quilt

I had participated in a quilt block swap a few months ago. I got the lovely Mary Chow as my swap partner and she made a sweet block for me. Well, we liked each other (or the blocks we made) so much that we decided to swap mini quilts. Here's what she sent me...

She also sent me some lovely cat applique pieces to user for Ira. I am still not done with what i am making for her. Will post the pictures soon.

A respite

I recently realised that i haven't posted in a month. A very strange occurrence is taking place in my daughter's life for a couple of months now. She catches cold and goes through a cycle of viral fever exactly around the 10th or 11th of every month and this is the third time this has happened. The weather in the city is playing havoc with the kid's immune system with cold, heat and rain all in a day for a spell and then a perfect summer weather otherwise. I am thankful for a month's school vacation coming up. It will keep her out of infection's way for a while. However before the vacations commence, it is exam time. I am as excited as Ira is since this is her first proper exam :).

I haven't really stopped working on any of the projects meanwhile. I have the Birdie Stitches blocks 8 and 9 done. I am also planning to finish the quilt top in a couple of days.

And the progress so just served to remind me how behind i am. :)
