ah the weekend! 🙂 The cold is nearly gone except for a lingering cough. I was supposed to go to a play tomorow night but don’t think whoever has paid for their tickets and ends up sitting next to me would appreciate hearing me cough all the way through it so told my friend she should invite someone else – a healthy person.

So my plans for the weekend are to ge the cupcake quilt together now that I finally have the last block that needs to go in it. And get the binding done on the other auction quilt. Once those are done, I can get busy on other projects of my own. I also plan to dig through the tops boxes and pull out a couple to get pin basted so they are ready to quilt. There’s just too many of them that have been sitting there for far to long. So I may have a pin basting marathon to see how many I can get pinned before I run out of pins rather than procrastinating longer on the pin basting.
I finished the large quilt for the next Hoffman design but they also want a wallhanging design based on the larger one, so have that one left to write up sometime this weekend.
I’ve nearly got the sock I was working on finished – just a couple more rows before I can finish off the toe. The green vest I was working on is way to big so I’ll be doing some ripping out on that. In the meantime, I picked up a knitting magazine that had several cute little summer tops, sleeveless or short sleeved that would look great under a suit jacket, so have my eye on those. But there’s one I decided to make that is very simple that I’m going to use the green yarn on because I realized it’s a perfect color to go with some linen pants I have. Just raglan sleeves and the only decoration on it is a little cable that runs along where the ragland sleeve joins to the top. Round neck and sleeves to the shoulder. Should be a great summer cotton sweater. Even got it cast on a couple rows done earlier so I’m off and running… or knitting.
The whole apartment (other than my sewing room) is a mess and needs cleaning but for tonight, I’m going to relax and sit and knit!
The cupcakes for the auction quilt are back up on the wall. I removed the old sashing which I didn’t like. It will be this orange instead with lime green cornerstones of the same print. It works much better with the bright blocks.
The borders will be this print.
That’s about all that’s going on here. I did get some knitting done yesterday evening, tweaked the Hoffman design and am just awaiting final approval. But that’s about all I accomplished yesterday other than a nap. But after steaming my cold in the shower this morning, I’m feeling a bit more human so plan to head into the sewing room and get the Woven Ribbons quilt pin basted so I can start quilting on it.
I’ve got some hard boiled eggs cooling — got to dye me a few eggs for Easter. 🙂 Other than that, will see what the day brings.
