Yarn Along – Easily Distracted


On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

I have 3 sections to ruffle.

March 5 002 One quarter of my quilt was sewn together this week.

March 5 004 What can I say. . .
when an unfaithful knitter/crocheter/quilter
finds a new pattern . . .
She just has to try it!

I haven’t used Homespun for a while because it doesn’t showcase the stitches I’ve worked so hard to make. but I have these 8 skeins purchased for another circle afghan that were pouting in the stash shed because they were being ignored and I had to try a new to me pattern. (Actually I tried the pattern in dishcloth cotton{it was close} and THE pattern begged to be crocheted up right now!) So this new project is really not my fault, is it?

Pattern – Corner to Corner Throw, Red Heart pattern, LW1595 by Catherine Watson.
The pattern starts with one shell in the corner grows diagonally to half size;
then decreases back to one shell, then add a shell/scalloped edge.

Listening to the last book in the Shepherd’s Heart, Spring Meadow Sanctuary, Lynnette Bonner, light and easy listening.

I’m linking my post with Ginny and her Yarn Along.

My current project – love the 30’s designs.

I Was Bitten by the Quilt Bug

We went to Phoenix, AZ for vacation for 17 days. I visited a quilter friend. One day we looked through old quilt magazines together. Another time she shared several old quilts made by her mother and grandmother, and  some quilts she had made.  I ohhhed and ahhhed and got bit.

One quilt a sixteen patch block set with a snowball block got my attention.  I could see it made up with the 30’s fabrics waiting in the stash shed.   I bought the fabric for the snowball block.  For great niece, Jaden

A quilt in the window of quilt shop, Fabric Garden,  called to me. I had plenty of 30’s in the box. I bought setting corner and binding fabric. For great niece, Anya.

And then, my compulsive/obsessive gene kicked in and somehow fabric came home; Atkinson’s Yellow Brick Road, a quilt designed to use fat quarters  (a 18X21″ piece of fabric) is the designated pattern.  For great nephew,  Jacoby.

At the first of the year I had 5 quilts on my ‘hope’ to do list for 2014, One of these quilts wasn’t on the list . . . then.

Right now not a whole lot of knitting is getting down, hhhhmmmmm.
