Quilt retreat coming up this weekend. Three full days of quilting and fun!
The main project has been cut into a kit and is waiting in the project box. It is the commission quilt, you know, the one I traded for many cords of firewood.
The red/white/blue disappearing 9-patch came back from the long arm quilter. The binding is cut but not assembled or attached. This needs to be done so the quilt can go to Alycia for Quilts of Valor. Need to do this so it can go to retreat as my hand-work project.
A pair of socks was cast on for Little Sister. She wanted blue but I chose to use yarn on hand and because the socks are a bit larger than I normally make I had to choose yarn that runs slightly more yards per skein, therefore I hope she doesn't mind a pair of Halloween socks *smile*. These will be going to retreat with me also. The socks are being knit in the Magic Loop method of two socks at the same time on one long (40") circular needle.
The paint bucket that contains the dark scraps for string piecing will come along for the ride, not that I'll get to them, but I might.
That takes care of the projects. The featherweight is packed up and all sewing supplies are accounted for except thread. Need to add thread. It is supposed to snow on Thursday, now doesn't that just figure. I get to drive in the snow. Fun.
