I have been absent from Blogville. I apologize to my followers and promise to try and do better! I have many irons in the fire right now, and it is very easy to read blogs and then promise to post later, but the later never comes.
What have I been up to?
I have finished my 2nd pair of socks and am almost to the heel flap on my 3rd pair!! I also gave in to the urge to order more yarn. I now have 7 more colors of yarn to choose from… that should get me to next winter, when I will have a whole rainbow of hand-knitted socks to choose from! Now if I can just manage to stay away from the yarn internet site….
We spent a couple of nights at the lake camp. DH and BIL set out yoyos and caught a good mess of crappie. YUM! We had the last of them for lunch today. SIL and I did some quilting activities… she pieced and I cut out pieces for a row-by-row quilt the local quilt guild is doing.
I got one of MY quilts quilted… actually it is a gift-quilt for one of my sisters. I can say that because I don’t think EITHER ONE of my sisters read my blog, and if they do, they can just keep guessing as to which one gets the quilt. I’ll show pictures later this week after I get it hemmed.
Today I am quilting on one of my art quilts. It has been pieced for about a year now and it is time to get the quilting done. I am using one of the fabrics I painted in a workshop with Jamie Wallen for the lining fabric. I hope things turn out well! Tonight may be a quilt-marathon, because DH and PJ (our dog) have gone to the lake camp to fish. Time is my own, just as late as I want to quilt tonight.
So… hubby is away, Gussie Fay and I will play! Later! I promise pictures soon.
