I also got some sewing time this weekend. I remembered that my Scrapbuster Swap deadline was coming up next week. Remember when I made the mosaic blocks for that swap? Well, I took a couple of rounds off, but I joined back up this time. The swap is for postage stamp blocks. And yes, I have a postage stamp quilt top all done and ready to be basted and quilted...so why did I sign up for this swap? Well, first, I just missed the swapping and anticipation of what will come in the mail. But I also thought it would be fun to take these full-color blocks (since my top uses white as the alternate block) and incorporate them into the back for my quilt. That way, it'll be two-sided, and full of fun. I'm almost done and should have these done to mail off this week ahead of schedule!!
|We are in a torrential downpour this afternoon, so I had to take these pictures inside with no natural lighting...I'll take new ones tomorrow!|
And, as I said I would, I went through my yarn stash. I decided to just start at the top and work down through the overly-large stash for someone who is such an on-again, off-again knitter. So...I grabbed these two skeins of acrylic that I LOVE the colors of and got started. Since I don't have many circular needles and no double-points, all hats (that I have patterns for) were out, so I'm going with a set of mittens for me. I'll see how much yarn I have left after that and probably make a hat after that. It'll be a great excuse to buy some DPNs, right?
I hope everyone has had a great Monday so far...I see the sun starting to poke out here. I'm ready for fall's cooler, drier weather to start coming in. Please??
