On the Square

 I have one of the five window sills completely finished!
 The other four have the tile adhered but not yet grouted.
 The cutting of the tile is done for now!  Phew!  The marble tiles look great but they sure did crumble easily!
 Here is the cutting station!  Bill did a ton of cutting for me when I wore out!
When I needed a break from the tough stuff, I spent some time in the sewing room.   I saw this link for a YouTube video on a blog friend's post and
decided to tweak it a bit to make these.
A whole bunch of these!   About a dozen I think!  I made all kinds of mistakes on the first one but they are cranking out pretty easily now!
 I am doing a row of quilting blocks a day on the flower basket quilt.   It is progressing nicely!
 I am outlining the flower basket blocks and adding a pretty free-form feathered wreath in the plain blocks.
It gives this quilt the illusion of tradition with a bit of a modern flair.  Perfectly complimentary!
 I am hanging in there with the nieces socks.  I am working a bit on each sock....
But the boot cuffs keep calling my name!   Two pair done and I am almost done with a third pair!

  1. The windowsills look wonderful! I smiled to see the card table being a cutting station -- that takes has served many purposes over the years!

    I LOVE the feathers wreath quilting -- it is absolutely gorgeous.

    Nice knitting progress, too! Phew, you are a workhorse even when you are slowed down!

  3. Wowie...those windowsills are amazing. I am more than impressed. I've done some tile work so I know what it involves and it's a lot.
    Love that feather wreath. It reminds me of my grandmother who incorporated them into many a quilt that I wish I still had.

  4. The window sills look fabulous; and the quilting and knitting are interesting. But you know the sunglasses cases really got my attention because I haven't even tried that technique yet! Obviously it went well for you. What did you learn? What do I need to know before I start mine (next month)?

Pumpking

 KnitPicks had a free pattern for this pumpkin dishcloth.   It was a bit fiddly at the bottom but stitch by stitch the pumpkin grew!  ...
