Three Weeks and Counting

Well the weekend is over and it's time to face facts: summer vacation is coming to an end. Yes internet, three weeks from today Harv and I will be back to work. No more long lazy days of crafting and cooking and eating and Wii-ing. It's all coming to an end.
Of course a lot can be accomplished in three weeks. I'm not trying to set any real, definitive deadlines on myself here because I know how I am and when I have to do something I want to do it a lot less. There are some things, though, that will get done simply because I want to do them. First, Harv and I will be making and animating some puppets for a stop-motion film that a friend is making. It is a collaborative sort of thing and I know that most of you are probably not too interested in animation I think that the puppet building might make for some good craft blog fodder. We shall see.
Second (although I will probably work on this first) very first ever swap! Yes, I have done it. I am participating in the Doll Quilt Swap organized by Lisa K. I have my swap partner and after a little reconnaissance work at her blog and flickr page I have settled on an idea of sorts. I will be using the following fabrics,
Fabric for a doll quilt
and I think that I may utilize the old paper piecing technique since I would like to have some fairly small pieces. I don't have a real pattern in mind. I am just going to wing it and see what happens. I will keep you posted.
