Postings and ponderings of a quilting and knitting addict!

Tuesday, October 2, 2012


I’ve lost it!  I can’t seem to find it anywhere.  Several times I thought I was getting close, but it was not so.  I’ve lost my blogging incentive.  Several things have happened and I would think, “I ought to do a blog post about this.”  But I never followed through.  I know you don’t want a list of excuses so I offer none.

Distractions… perhaps I am just distracted by other things going on right now.  Life things, fun things, sewing things, knitting things, other things… so many distractions!

As quickly as it left, it is likely to reappear, so I am not overly concerned about this happening.  Stuff HAS been happening around me, a few pictures have been taken, and so I’ll post  these meager offerings in hope of keeping you with me…


The Stack and Whack donation quilt.


The quilting design is “Honeysuckle”, one of my favorite leaf and vine designs.


I had another quilt also, but managed to “oops” the pictures while transferring from camera to computer.  I REALLY must go change my recycle bin settings where things are kept there for a while so I can retrieve my mistakes!


I have been getting lots of knitting done.  The Reader’s Wrap is so near completion.  Just a few more inches and I’ll be ready to work on the pockets.  It is at that gangly, difficult-to-photo stage, but I hope you get the idea.


I think you will get a better view of the color on this photo.


Almost done with sock pair #8  for the year.  I’m rushing to finish these because I want to cast on…


this wonderful hand painted yarn that was gifted to me.  I had really thought about taking a break from sock knitting but have been drawn back in by this lovely.  I think I will choose some sort of rather simple pattern for this, rather than knitting my usual fast and plain stockinet.  We shall see.

Now… off to do housework, sew a little, pack for quilt club tonight, and then start gathering things for a few days of quilt retreat with friends.  Distracted… that’s exactly what I am!

Have a wonderful week!



  1. Hey, life happens, and it's okay to take a break from blogging. Your readers aren't going to riot. Blogging is supposed to be fun not an obligation.

    Your Reader's Wrap is great! I have another 8 inches and the pockets to knit on mine. I can't wait to use it on these chilly mornings.

    My sock knitting has stalled, but I can't wait to dive into the bag of scrap yarn you gifted to me. Thanks again! ;oD

  2. I LOVE your Readers Wrap. Glad you see you feel like enjoying posting again. :)

  3. It's hard to work with your hands and blog at the same time. My blogging goes in spurts, too. What you have to show for your time away from your blog is well worth the exchange. You do such beautiful work!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. It always helps me remember to visit yours and be inspired.



Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
