Look deep into my eyes

WEll, my kid’s eyes, anyway.

I have seriously got to stop trying take pictures at the end of the day when there is no light.  How many times have I said that?  Sheesh.  I hate it when I have to learn a lesson over and over and over.

So the other day, I was debating between knitting and sewing.

I did both.

I’m several more rows on since this picture.  This yarn is so yummy. This is a kit, came with several different kinds of yarns (different fibers and textures) that were dyed to match.  It’ going to be a ripple afghan, and it’s pretty easy to knit, doesn’t require too much brain power, but just enough brain power that it isn’t boring.

This still needs borders.  And a back.  This is what Joe is going to quilt for the Kids Can Quilt competition.  We’re goign to start to run out of time to do this, so I’d better get busy.

This was from a kit that I got last year at Road to California.  A large part of the quilt top is the printed stripe.  I pieced the stars and the square in a square blocks in the middle.  The pattern was from the manufacturer and had an error.  Ugh.  The star points?  They had you cut them 1/4 inch too small.  So…it’s lucky I have such a large and varied stash, as I was able to find something in the right color that would substitute.

I think that’s all I know for now.

    Thanks for the tip on the pattern mistake – I just bought this kit in Minnesota last fall and I haven’t started it yet. So glad I read your blog!!! 🙂
