I finally got some time to work in my new sewing room and it is marvelous. The cutting table is perfect and the whole arrangement works great. I did some work on a quilt I am making for some very special people. I won't mention who or why they are special until the quilt goes out, but it's called Piney Woods and it's a kit I got at The Stitchin' Post in Sisters, Oregon. This is a fabulous store and a must-see for any quilter or knitter passing through. The town is really a neat old western style town and The Stitchin' Post has both quilting and knitting supplies. I have all the pieces cut out for the quilt (which I got in the blue colorway) and have started sewing the tree blocks together. I am also planning to add a special appliqued block to the middle of the quilt which will be significant to the recipients.
I have been thinking about all the WIP's I've got. I've had a major case of startitis and have only been finishing things slowly. Part of the problem is that I've had things come up that need to be done by a deadline and all the other projects fall by the wayside. On the needles, these are the ones I can remember (left to right top and left to right bottom):
1. socks with Opal sock yarn and Wendy's toe-up sock pattern
2. socks with Lorna's Laces Shepherd sock and the Feather and Fan pattern in Socks, Socks, Socks
4. baby sweather with Manos Cotton Stria and a Minnow Knits pattern
6. Branching out scarf from Knitty
7. multi-colored vest with Manos del Uruguay and a Manos pattern
8. socks with Lorna's Laces and the Columbine pattern in Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles by Cat Bordhi (don't ask about the strange color differences in the socks- I don't want to talk about it!)
I'm also working on another little felted moebius basket with Manos and Cat's pattern (see 7/28 post). I will continue to make these items in preparation for teaching more moebius classes.
Like I said, these are the ones I can think of and I'm sure there are more. I will finish them! I just need
ten arms and 72 hour days a little time. I also have several quilty WIP's in addition to the Piney Woods quilt. I am doing the Keepsake Quilting "Up on a Rooftop" challenge which will not be shown here until it leaves the house. I have several charity quilts I'm doing for my quilt guild and the Live and Learn Unschool Conference raffle in October. I have a quilt all ready to be machine quilted for a baby who was just born (gotta get going!).
