I had decided on some nice mindless sock-knitting ...
|Oh oh! Broken knitting needle! What to do?|
|"Friendship Star" quilt block using bits of cutesy bright food-related fabrics.|
|Sewing the binding on a placemat.|
|Miss Boots, Chief Thread Inspector!|
|Completed placemat on table.|
|Reverse side ... great foody expressions ... and NOT white (in case of spaghetti sauce)!|
|Bright red Paton's Classic Wool|
|Finished hat. Oops ... taking pix in the bathroom whilst wearing jammies!|
So one partial sock, a set of placemats, and a hat took care of the first three days of my Christmas vacation. Every time I tried to read, I fell asleep, so figured I'd better come up with another project to keep myself awake for the remainder of the week. I had been contemplating this ...
|"A Grateful Heart" sampler quilt (McCall's Quilting magazine, Winter 2009-10)|
|"Grandmother's Fan" block|
|"Rail Fence" block|
|"Flower Basket" block ... oh oh! Something's not right here ...|
|That's better! (Note to self: slow down! be more patient!)|
|"Peace and Plenty" block|
|"Old School House" block|
This is my new favourite quilting tool ...
|Can you guess what it is???|
|"I'll just give this new quilt a trial run for 'nappability'!"|
So that's how the holidays were spent in my humble home. How were YOUR holidays???
