Laundry day

Unfortunately, I have nothing particularly crafty to share today. Except my laundry. It might qualify as crafty because it was all fabric!

my fabric laundry
Inspired by my friend E's lovely stacks of washed, ironed, and neatly folded fabric, I started in on washing my fabric haul from last August. The pile above represents four full loads of laundry. I actually managed to iron and fold the first load (the tiny looking neat pile in front). Sadly, I think I've got another three or four loads of fabric to go. Anyway, that's about it for crafty accomplishment today.

In other news, I've received my first-ever blog award.

Kreativ Blogger Award
Woo hoo! Many thanks to Satu. She is a skilled quilter who does the most beautiful piecing and has an amazing eye for color. It is really an honor to receive such an award from her!

I think I'm supposed to now pass this award along to seven other people. It's hard to narrow it down because there are so many amazing and inspiring blogs out there (I just looked, and my Bloglines list has 131 subscriptions!). But I'd like to pass this award along to:
  • Carrie P.-- an amazing applique artist
  • Emily-- a gifted and prolific quilter and businesswoman
  • Gayla-- who makes beautiful crafty things
  • Kira-- who is super-crafty and makes me smile
  • Zonnah-- a talented quilter (and mom to a toddler, like me)
  • Karen-- for sharing her many quilting journeys
  • Yvette-- crazy productive and creates beautiful things

Now, I know I've seen this award on other blogs, and (of course) I can't remember where. So, if you've already received this award, and I'm awarding it to you yet again... well, I just want you to know that I appreciate all the work you're doing!


  1. Wow, your friend must have gotten a really great deal on all that fabric. That is one big pile but you might as well do it all at once. Thanks for tthe award and congratulations on getting the award your self. You deserve. I really enjoy reading your blog.

  2. I don't pre-wash my fabric. {hangs head low}. Geez! Thats alot of fabric!!

  3. Wow! Look at that fabric! and thank you very much for the award. That made my day. :)

  4. Thank you! I can't believe that you'd even think of me. :) And great job on washing your fabrics ... I'd just be happy if I could wash my regular laundry, nevermind the fabric!
