This week

   Things went almost as planned at the beginning of this week, except for the Korean alphabet pillows for a donation.

   Here is the charity quilt. One of my friends brought some leftovers of blocks to the quilting meeting for give away, so I picked them up without a specific plan. And, it turned out to be a crib quilt. I pieced the blocks; added inner borders and outer borders, and quilted it.


  The crib quilts for my friend who is going to have twins, were done also. The baby shower is the end of August. I would like to keep how they look like in secret yet, until the baby shower will be over. My friend has already known I would make quilts for her – actually one of the quilts is upon my other friend's order; we share the gift; so I can say here that the quilts are done. I like the result – as I used one of my favorite fabrics :D I used the same fabrics and similar backings but different patterns for the quilts since they are for twins.

  As for the Korean alphabet pillows -
I had 3 color schemes on my mind. One is this using batiks.

Others is this using solid.

And then, I thought pastel might be good because this donation is for a Korean adaption organization – for children.

Then, reconsidered how about natural image...?
And, started to work on it with natural - Green & Brown, though (>_<)!!

   I feel like I am not doing well with these... These are not what I had on my mind. Well..., I am going to see how it will turn out. I will post pictures when they are done...

   By the way.
   I asked my mother what she wants for her birthday. She said she asked my brother (her son) for one DVD set of Korean drama just in case of he might be hoping to get something for her, and he said “yes” laughing. So, she wanted me to get the scales since her very old one is rusted. I just ordered it online; she will get it shortly at her place. It's SO convenient to have the Internet! I can order and pay for it online (Japanese web site) using my credit card from the USA; she will just receive it at home in Japan :)

   This weekend was spent for studying of my class. I am going to finish the class earlier than the original end date, and will try to have a summer vacation!! Hopefully.....
