What I've Been Working On

What's this?  I actually made progress on a project?  Yeah, graduate school has been kicking my butt and not leaving a lot of time for fun things, like hacking fabric apart to make soft and squishy things.  I did make a cute little turtle that didn't take very long at all.  In fact, I think I like him so much I'll make a few more, or go with an underwater theme, and maybe put together a mobile for my sister's soon-to-be-baby.

I've also successfully finished piecing together my second sweater quilt!  I haven't put the backing on it yet, but the important parts are all there.

This was made by cutting apart four 100% merino sweaters, and I picked the softest ones I could find at that.  There was the black argyle, a nice GAP striped but had too many holes to wear, a burgundy one full of holes, and a dark charcoal gray.  Hey, if Goodwill wants to sell holey sweaters for $0.15 on sale, I won't say no!

Also, thank you to Resweater's blog for giving me this idea and for having a lot of inspiring ideas in general.
