I have been here. Busy being a mom, wife, friend, sister, and lot of other things. I did manage to fit in some quilting and knitting this past week. I took out a longtime UFO (an Alex Anderson sampler) and finished the rest of the blocks. I just need to decide what I want to do for the border of this quilt. I want to find the perfect fabric that ties all the colors together, but that would mean shopping. I am not opposed to buying the border fabric. But using my stash to finish this quilt would be awesome. When I started this project I was able to pull all the fabrics from my stash. It would be nice to be able to have this be an all stash quilt. Stay tuned...
My sister-in-law loved the hot pads and washcloths I made her for Christmas. She asked if I would knit her some more washcloths. I was delighted that she asked. Washcloths are quick and fun and I can't seem to stop myself!
I really wanted to make mug cozies as teacher gifts for Christmas this year. The snow meant that school got out for Winter Break earlier than planned and we didn't have a chance to give our gifts. I set it on the back burner and forgot about it. I couldn't find a pattern for what I wanted it to look like. So I designed my own. I hope it works out like I want it to!
My sister and I were supposed to be working on our Dear Jane quilt today. I tried, I really did. But it ended up being a day full of interruptions and I didn't get much done. Oh well, there is always next week!
