A Little Progress

I finally got some time to knit yesterday and made quite a bit of progress. It thundered and had lots of lightening yesterday so I couldn't spend time quilting. I'm almost finished with 2nd skein of Silky Merino. I will use as much as I can of the 3rd skein and then call it done.

Dawn's Mixers

What a fun quilt! I had discussed how to quilt this with Dawn and I suggested writing Kitchenaid on the mixers and that was the plan till my engineering husband said, "Those aren't Kitchenaids, they are Sunbeams". I contacted Dawn and we went with the Sunbeams. I found the logo on Google so I could make them look authentic. Who would have thought such things mattered. It's just one of the joys of living with a thinking man.

No Valid Excuse for This

I swore I'd never do this, but here I am doing it…more than one project at the same time. I just had to try the new yarn because there popped up a September challenge and you know I can't resist a challenge.

So, here's a close up of the new project.

Stack 'n Whack Buzzsaw

Finally Joan's Buzzsaw is finished! Between being sick and having thunderstorms for a week where I needed to turn the machine off, it was no easy task to get it done. I'll deliver it at camp this weekend. Looking forward to a bit of piecing of my own.

Pointy Stars

Between being sick for a few days and having several thunderstorms over a week's time and having to unplug the machine, I thought I'd never get this quilt done. It was so much fun and I can't wait to give it to her. It's so different from the usual feathers or leaves. Ruler work makes my hands hurt but I felt it really needed it in this quilt of Karen's.

Slow Progress in Knitting, Slower Progress in Quilting

Beautiful cross stitched sampler by my daughter, Olivia for my birthday/mother's day/Christmas/August gift. Well worth the wait! Thank you, Sweetie.

I have an amazing customer quilt on the machine, been there a week because of less than perfect body (cold and pulled back muscles). Hopefully, I'll finish it up by tomorrow evening and there'll be quilty pics on the blog.

Slow Progress

My Rivarian shawl is pretty much at a standstill until I can get some more help. The wrap and turns keep confusing me so I have to visit a friend for help again. I can’t start again until tomorrow night. It’s not looking good for a finish in time for the challenge. In the interim, I started a simple Boneyard Shawl so my fingers don’t forget how to knit. It is quite a bit browner in color than the pic.
