It’s a top

Block and rows are all sewn together.

20160207_3Now I just have to decide what, if any, borders I might want to add to it.  It will be a great little charity quilt and that peach color, which is a bit brighter IRL, made those blocks look a bit spring-like laying on my floor – despite the snow right outside the door.

In addition to this sewing, I’ve gotten two large loaves and one small made of banana bread to take into the office tomorrow and did some cleaning. (Tho you’d never know I had the kitchen spotlesss since I currently have it messed up again with some dinner preparations).  I never really paid attention to what time I got up this a.m. but it seems like it was a day and a half ago.  I’m not complaining that time seems to be going by slowly by any means but it does seem like it is.

Think I’ve had enough sewing for today so knitting and finding a good movie to watch – the only way to spend a Sunday afternoon and evening – and I’ve got some country style pork ribs slow roasting in the oven for dinner.  I’ve been so hungry for those so am anxiously awaiting dinner!

My little featherweight, after hibernating in the sewing room for what seems a long time, finally got a bit of a work out yesterday.   I got all of one type of block for my quilt done.


There’s a pile of scraps left not quite wide enough to cut more block pieces but might work in a border so I’ve set those aside.    Hopefully I will get the alternating blocks cut and sewn today.  I can trip piece those more easily since they are out of regular yardage and not all those little layer cake strips so should go quickly.

I did cast on my Unbalanced sweater last night – more than one.  I had about an inch knit and realized in the very first row I must have set it down and then picked it back up and twisted one of the needles so there was a twist in the beginning row.  No one else would have noticed it but it bugged me and at the same time the lightbulb came on — why didn’t I use the tubular cast on since I like that so much better than long tail on sweaters.  All the more reason to start over, which I did, so nearly have the bottom ribbing done once again but I’m much happier with it.
