projects galore!!

This was the job I was going to tackle yesterday, but it kind of got the shuffle. It is started, but barely a dent is made. A little chatting last night with the hubby about under the pile and tarps and stacks and such... And today is rather a yucky day and I have a boy at college who needs his checkbook and his sneakers, and the bag of flour that was left on the counter after he had departed... So I'm off to meet him halfway on the highway....at noon. This pile will have to wait a little longer..
So for now, I guess I'll shower and work on this pile. This is my new quilt for my bed. Just 5 different materials put together by the method of "pick 2- if they are different, sew them together. No two blocks the same side by side." I have seen several this way and I think it will be great, but if I don't love it, I can always gift it or flip it over!! No. I will like it. I like the material and colors. just gotta go from there.
I'll have to take a picture when it is done. Of course, I have that BS girls getting together at 4, so I will have plenty of interruptions! But that's OK. That just means I need to grab my new knitting project to take along. I have a slipper with one sole, that needs another sole and then start another slipper. You'll like them..felted clogs...still need to fix the other felted slipper's fit. Especially since I bought enough yarn for another pair of those. But I saw the nicest cardi knit up here yesterday, and I'm thinking it's time to try one. She wrote me that she's not been knitting that long, and boosted my courage a bit.. If not this style, than another....something big and wearable. OK. I'd better get moving for now. I'll be back later to brag about all that I got done!!

I cant wait to see your finished product (the quilt). I have attempted to quilt but have yet to find the dedication to actually complete one. But I am thinking about trying to quilt something fairly simple, maybe that will help. :) Anyways, good luck on that wood pile. ;)

I helped sew a few stiches in a quilt for the Fall festival at my church last week. I was supprised how much I enjoyed it. Of course the fellowship was wonderful too. We had an age range of 16-92 working on it. But I may try and help again.

Oh, Robin...
Get thee to a class or a friend who will get you going!! You will find an addiction in it and it is a community. I like that perhaps as much as anything with my twice a year Scrap & Sew weekends...just visiting with people that it seems like we are all too busy to have these conversations in regular life. A dozen or so people in the room and there is enough room to have private coversations, but also cozy enough to all have the same one and hear it. It's #15 and going strong.
