Keep that Gal Sewing!


I love the patterning DH did on the scarf he made.  I'm glad it was his project not mine.
I have the best news the third scarf is done!  I finished it last night, I just need to weave in the bits of yarn sticking out.  DH started another one blur crochet this time.  That will bring out donated scarves to four.  Not bad.

This is the one I made.  It was 80 rows garter knit, 11 rows of pearl, repeat. UGH way to much counting!

Jessica made off with the bolster, just like she does with all the good stuff.
AS for today I've spent most of the day sewing, I've been working on cutting down the two bags of fabric my neighbor gave me.  I made a blue bolster pillow for a Christmas gift (shhh) and capri's for me (out of this amazing fabric that breathes!)  There is an ugly Charmeuse Polyester in that I haven't decided if it will become pants for my husband or not.  Aren't I a kind and considerate wife to take this time and concern over ugly fabric?   I also have 3 yards of an amazing bottom weight fabric (that DH has already complimented on) which I have great plans to turn into a godet skirt, I'll do that just as soon as I can get my hands on a bit of black for detailing work.

 My favorite part of these pants is the zigzag detail!
QUILTS?!?!?!  Well I'll tell you about quilts. 

1.  That Cat Quilt is the one at the top of my pile right now and while I keep playing with layouts, I don't know what to do about it.  I'd really like butterflies in it somehow...

2.  I've decided that the Spring Sampler MUST have a border to bring the quilt together.

3.  My pile of quilts to be quilted is getting scary big.  I found a darning foot that I'm hoping DH can alter a bit to fit the Brother machine so that I can try my hand at free motion.

Hey, want to trade services? I'll quilt you a quilt with either meander or a panto if you send me a scarf. Think about it.....
AND I would love to see a pic of that quilt with the leaves on it. Pic and story please! :-)
