I'm still dealing with IT issues at home, but (cue angels singing) I finally got my MacBook! I just got it and I'm still learning how to use it, but I LOOOOVE it. I am so excited. And the other good news is that one of my teammates at work was able to save all of my files from my old computer. I'm still working on transferring everything over to the MacBook, but I am just so relieved that my music collection and my family photos are not lost and gone forever.
OK, so back to the swap. In January, Solidia and I were paired to make "plain jane" quilts in the Swap 'Til You Drop mini quilt swap. Solidia actually sent me a mini quilt once before, for my very first mini swap quilt ever back in July! As much as I love that quilt, Solidia outdid herself this time.
Isn't this such a great little quilt?? (The image is actually taken from Solidia's photostream ... I'm still not able to download photos from my camera to my computer). Solidia incorporated pictures of my three children into the design. I love it, Solidia ... thanks so much! I am glad we'll be swapping some more in SewConnected 3!
Here's the miniature quilt I sent to Solidia in return:
Just in time for Valentine's Day, I sent Solidia this 12"x12" quilt in shades of red, pink, and chocolate brown and an with all-over stippling design.
