my stash project

I belong to a quilter's forum on the 'net, and really enjoy the challenges that are posted. Our last one was to create any project, using only fabrics from our stash. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I had this many reds - the beiges, creams and tans are useful for so many things, so I don't have to apologize for them!
The challenge ran from Jul. to Dec. '09 and, in typical procrastinator style, I finally got around to sewing it together in Jan. - but, now it's done! Well, mostly... I still have to put a border or two on it, and then quilt and bind it, but you know what I mean. Now the challenge is to decide who the recipient is going to be!

a birthday card for Rebecca

I have all these stamp sets on my shelf, and I decided that I'd better either start using them or get rid of them - so I grabbed a set at random, and this is one of the cards I made.
This set is very versatile - I think I made 6 different cards with it, and I could probably make another 5 or 6!
I originally put the cards in my box, but I've sent out a few since then. I just noticed last night that it's Rebecca's birthday on Sat., so I grabbed my box, picked this card, and just before I put it into the envelope, I realized that I should share it here first. I know that Rebecca doesn't even know that I have a blog, so it's safe to post it here!
Happy birthday friend!
