Playing Ketchup?

Goodness me, I'm getting jpeg build-up! Here are a few photos of things I've been doing lately.

First of all, here is the completed quilt that I made for my niece, Amity. She's due to give birth any day now. When I offered to make her a baby quilt, she requested one with the theme of rockets and robots. It has been a lot of fun.

I like this quilt best when viewing the details. This little cat astronaut on the moon is my favorite thing about the whole quilt! I drew up everything on sketch paper before I turned them into applique.
One of the three rockets.
Hurray, it's a successful launch!

Recently I learned how to make a tote bag out of clothesline covered with 2 1/2" strips of fabric. I won't lie to you about how much work it was, but I'm thrilled with how it turned out. It's huge!

I also tried out kumihimo weaving. We made our own discs out of fun foam. It makes cording. Matilda is sniffing at my first effort; now I'm working on a jungle-icious green cord. What will I do with it? Maybe a small purse handle.

What a fun quilt! I once started a space travel quilt using Star Trek as the theme. It's one of my few UFOs!

Best, Kyra

Ooh, another Trekker? We were hooked on The Next Generation for a while.
