Fall Quilt, A Quilt for Me

Sooo...we don't really have a comforter for our bed. We've got a collection of small blankets, a giant, ugly comforter from Darcy's bachelor days (can I throw it out already?!) and a super heavy and warm feather duvet for that's just perfect for Vancouver's sub-zero winter nights (not).

I've made a couple of quilts and it's been very hard to give them away. I think it's time that I make myself a special quilt. Something not too big, not too small and just warm enough.

I chose the Swoon Quilt by Camille Roskelley. It's so darn pretty! I went down to The Cloth Shop on Granville Island on Wednesday and blew a bunch of money on fabric. The ladies working in this shop are hilarious and awesome. It was a good experience.

Here's what I chose:

It's going to be very light and fresh! Lots of white and cream with little pops of green. I can't wait to get started. 

In other crafty news, knit night is back after a one year hiatus! I joined my gal pals Priscilla and Jen over at Amber's place last night. It's great to feel so inspired to pick up my knitting again after losing interest for so long. The gals are feeling it too. We're pumped! Photo's coming soon of my sweater-in-progress.
