This & That

I finally finished up the last project for my first box of donation items to Udderly Pink, a set of two kitchen towels.  (Come back tomorrow to see how you can help support them, too!)

I got those in the mail yesterday, along with the 2 needle cushions for my 1 Year Blogiversary and 100th Post giveaway winners.  Also in the mail are these 3 table runners, for my friend Adrienne in Phoenix.

The striped runners are for her bedroom --- dresser and nightstand.

The paisley runner is for the TV stand in her living room.

Adrienne picked these fabrics when I visited her in Phoenix in January.

Now that those small projects are done, I have moved on to the quilt I'm making my sister for her new baby's nursery.  The shower is on the 30th and I just started this yesterday.  Whoops!  After the quilt, I still need to make a diaper stacker, a boppy cover, a car seat tent (quilt) and hopefully a few other items.  I've got a lot of work to do!!

She really loved this quilt, but the colors weren't quite right.  So, I made a quilt top with her nursery colors / fabrics and started adding monkeys to match the ones on her nursery wall. 

The background (squares/rectangles) part of the quilt took less than 45 minutes.
Cutting out those monkeys took about 45 hours!

I've appliqued down the 2 tree branches and 1 monkey tail so far.  Once the monkey outlines are complete, I'll add the faces, bellies, ears and some green leaves.  Oh, and a banana :-).

Here's the nursery wall again.... The monkeys on the quilt will match the 3 monkeys on the right side of the window.
