Idaho State Block (US Quilt)

Idaho! With mountains. What I mostly remember from Idaho is Craters of the Moon. Toly asked where are the potatoes. I said that's what the mountains are made of.

Still not happy with the road on the left side but not sure how to fix it at this point.

Sea Turtle
This was originally going to be part of a row quilt but now it's a stand-alone wall hanging or possibly a table runner. Does anyone still use those? Anyway, here's a sea turtle.

Quilt: Hopscotch

Whew! This one still needs a border but otherwise it's done, as far as I'm concerned. All fabrics came out of stash, I didn't have to buy any (woot!!!). Some fabrics are solids, some are prints, some are textures. Click for bigger.

It's not pressed because by the time it was done, I just wanted to get the picture for now XD Probably will be a twin/full size quilt with a border or two. Each square is 2" finished.

What would YOU do with an extra brain?

Handmade Brain Plushie! Approximately Life-Size! 

Yes, I've got this one on Etsy, because because a few people asked for one after the first two! I'm getting pretty good at these ^_^ 

Next up I have to actually make one for myself. I've had a lot of fun picking out charms to put on the brain (to represent memories and "what's on my mind" and so on) - the first two recipients did the same thing with theirs. 

(The bottom pic is an example of how one of the recipients decorated theirs with charms for interests and travels. The anchors are a reminder to "keep anchored" when making big plans.)

Missouri State Block (US Quilt)
Time for the Show-Me State and the Gateway Arch. Toly was there a few times for conventions and I'll add stars to the sky with hotfix crystals when the quilt is done.

It's been a while since I updated here. Still an exciting year and not always in a good way. We got thru Hurricane Harvey, trapped for 5 days in our house, the floodwater only 10' (3m) from the door. Otherwise we were safe and sound, but it was dicey for a bit. My brother kayaked over to visit us.

I've gotten into making postcards thanks to Postcrossing, I should put some of them up here. Some are for sale and some are just for fun.

Quilt stuff is on hold because of one thing and another (Toly's job was flooded out and he had to take a pay cut, tho at least he's still employed) but this weekend is the big international quilt festival and I hope to get some inspiration there.

Thimbleweed Park is excellent, loved it very much. The Long Reach looks to be good (coming out 11 Dec) and they even have a playable demo, which got me interested in the game much more than their trailer. (google for "the long reach demo", the link on their page keeps timing out)

And I made it another year. Go me!

Games played - Sims 3, Team Fortress 2, The Cave, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Sam and Max; Sims 2 back in the day; City of Heroes/City of Villains (RIP). Looking forward to City of Titans. I like Bioshock, Fallout and Borderlands series but I don't have time to play them.
