A Working Wednesday

I’m pre-writing this blog post and will drop in photos in the morning. We’ll see if this plan works at all, or if it’s a gigantic failure.

I went up to The Quilt Company yesterday (Tuesday) and sewed! With a group! For nearly three hours! The two California quilty friends who still read my blog may remember this quilt, since it was quite popular about three years ago.

I got it totally pieced yesterday and am going to sandwich it today and get quilting. I’m also gonna sandwich this one:

It’s gonna be for my nephew. He’s scheduled to arrive around Thanksgiving, but is making noises about showing up sooner rather than later. Here’s hoping he waits a few more weeks before he makes his big arrival. (Sister-in-law is on bedrest. UGH!)

Today is a mini-oasis in an avalanche of finished projects. I have two more still to show you! But there is still knitting being done. Namely, my Calvin & Ripple socks for the Q4 Socks that Rock KAL over on Ravelry.

There’s also some super sekrit knitting going on, but you’re just going to have to trust me on that one (or go peek at my Ravelry projects if you are so inclined.)

I’m hoping for a big sewing day today, then some knitting tonight. Fingers crossed, I’m off to the races!

OK, that Jack-o-lantern quilt is just CUTE! I admire those who have the patience for all that cutting, though. :)

Love the Jack-o-lantern quilt. It'll be great for decorating this month!

Also, have I missed something? I didn't know you had another baby in the way in your family. (Or did I?) Now I'm starting to wonder what else I've missed/forgotten.

Oh man, LOVE the Jo'L quilt!!!

And tell that nephew to hold on! The best babies are born around Thanksgiving! Ha ha!

The Calvin sock looks great and I love the pumpkin quilt.

Fingers crossed the baby holds in there until yo finish the quilt. It's a beauty.
