Wednesday Again!

Wow. Where have the last seven days gone?

So it’s been fairly crafty around here. I finished my Calvin sock, but you don’t really get to see it until the pair is finished. I did cast on the toe for my Ripple sock last night

Yep. I’m knitting the top-down Ripple sock toe-up. Yes, I have the designer’s permission!

Once again, there’s equal-if-not-more quilting going on versus knitting.

The Nephew Quilt is finished and just needs a bath

It’s not officially finished. Still needs a bath!

I finished off the Bali Pops-A-Lot quilt. Got the borders on it on Tuesday morning at The Quilt Company and found a great purple flannel backing for it yesterday afternoon at a new-to-me store, Sew Much Fun! in McMurray. I’ll get the backing pieced today, so it will be ready to send north on Sunday with my mother.

The parentals are heading up to the Lake on Sunday to close the cottage for the year. The wonderful longarm quilter who did my Pineapple quilt has two quilts of my mother’s finished, so hopefully mom can pick up her quilts and drop mine off in one fell swoop.

That Pumpkin quilt from last week? It’s now pinned and ready for quilting. If piecing the Pops-A-Lot back doesn’t take too long today, I’ll start quilting on that.

So that’s about it from here. Not all that exciting, but I’m enjoying myself!

Wow. You have so many quilts it seems! I could only imagine how many you have hidden away in your cedar chest. =D

Curse you, woman! Every time you post these gorgeous quilts, it makes me want to REALLY learn how to do it.

Hee hee..."so many quilts." Hee hee, I grew up with a quilter...hee hee, I know they're just as bad as knitters with their WIPs!

I love the way your projects all pretty much color coordinate!

Beautiful quilts! Your quilting always makes me think about taking it up...until I come to my senses and realize that I don't even have time to knit anymore. :)
