A Little of This, A Little of That
The quietness of the blog points to busyness at La Casa del Quilter.
I went to visit Auntie on a beautiful sunny Sunday and it was nice to just sit and visit and not have to 'do'. I was able to stay and visit for over an hour.
But long before going to Denver-town I was sewing. Sewing on Quilts of Valor quilts. One, two three tops and their backings are done and pin basting is in the near future.
The 4SQSMONO is done except for the label. This is being sent out of the country so it needs to to get into the mail very soon to be able to meet the deadline.
Lots of knitting going on, too. The stack of Log Cabin Barn Raising knitted blocks from leftover sock yarn is growing taller. A new process is in place: for every pair of socks that get knit a square will be knit too. A few pair of socks never got their photos taken, but the yarn is still in the basket so it (and the socks) will be preserved in a knitted square.
The photo is from Microsoft Clipart and I find it amusing that all the yarn items look like crochet but the photo shows knitting needles. And where is the sewing needle that goes with the sewing thread and thimbles?
