Back In The Swing

Or on the horse. Both work :D My cutter came a week ago, and it was totally awesome. I forgot how wonderful it felt to use a cutter that wasn't broken and eating my fabric! The action is sooo smooth. I *heart* Fiskars!

I'm halfway through my Tula Pink quilt, which I have dubbed: "Into the Woods." I don't know how I feel about it yet. I have 22 different prints, and yet it doesn't seem so scrappy. Or maybe it does. I don't know. Ms. Pink favors strong yellow-greens. Several of the greens are this way. Maybe they're all just too close in color, regardless of print design? I bought the backing fabric already. It was a steal at 3.18 a yard. I decided to use the brown branches print from the Nest range. I thought I would hate it (based solely on pictures, my first choice was the green branches, but the shop didn't have enough. So substitution it was.) but I actually love it! I'm glad.

Anyway, back to sewing I go!
