Palindromes

Otto.

Racecar.

Madam, I'm Adam.

33.

For 363 more days my age is a palindrome. I had a very nice birthday weekend, with lots of nice weather, good food and some sewing time. Unfortunately this is the last week of classes before final exams, so things are really busy.


I do have my blocks ready to go for Project Improv. I finished 3 orange and pink blocks, which is no where near the 40 blocks Bekhy made.

I also completed the International Women's Day Fat Quarter Swap -- all purple and green in honor of the suffragettes. My partner was Vicki (check out her blog to see what I sent). I received Vicki's package on my birthday (how apropos), and she sent some of the most delicious, deep–colored fabrics ever! It's hard to choose my favorite fabric -- I love the gradient -- but the stripe is pretty amazing as it gets darker and lighter but the contrast stays...well...high contrast. Thanks, Vicki!

Sorry the image is blurry, I had a choice of a sharp focus with untrue colors, or soft focus with true-to-life colors. I went for the colors.


I should be back later this week (fingers crossed) with my completed Four Seasons Quilt Swap quilt, and some progress on my Dr. Seuss challenge quilt. Ot I might just share all my incomplete grading with you!

Happy Birthday! :-D

I'm looking forward to see your Seussical quilt!

Happy Birthday. Oh to be so young at 33. :o) Love your project improv blocks.

Ooooh, oooh, oooh....I want to see a Dr. Seuss project -- that sounds too fun! Love the pretty blocks. Happy Belated Birthday!!!

I love the material you received! Very pretty!

But please keep your grading off-line. I can't bear to be confronted with a "least we forget" (which I encountered as the final line in an essay I graded a couple semesters ago. I will never forget that line to an unmemorable essay)...

Beth! I finally got one small project completed with the beautiful fabric giveaway you sent! I posted about it on my blog today. Thanks again.

Eeek I missed your Birthday!! Sorry I've been slightly side tracked. A Happy Birthday to you!! I hope it was lovely - oh to be 33 again! I love the 4SQS quilt you made too - I have yet to start on mine but I know exactly what I want to do so hopefully it will come together quickly. I am looking forward to getting back to my blog and a bit of relaxing crafting!

A man, a plan, a canal, panama. The only one I know! =)

I'd LOVE to swap blocks with you too! How does May work for you? This will be my first swap of any kind, so it's extra special to me.
