Getting Back My Full Stride

 PlanetPatchwork had a mystery  quilt on Saturday, so I dug out some scraps and got to work .  They release a clue an hour so you have time to finish each one before the next-fun!  I did not get to finish this because I need some orange/blue batik for the border and I didn't have any scraps that would do it justice.  The JoAnns list has one new item on it! (Each block is 11 1/2"  and it is dimensional-the blue strips and the blue squares  are folded and sewn in so that they stand out even when pressed-fun to learn a new technique!)
 This is some fabric I had bought for a Fall table runner-one yard is enough for the center section and the 60 degree triangles on the ends.  Quilting will get done this week.
 Today, Bill started the fireplace!  This is the week to see the fireplace installed!  Yippee!
This was delivered today also-a wood splitter!  More pics to follow when we get it put together!
 I finished knitting the headband and got it blocked today-the sun was so warm it was dried in no time!
 So here is the set, ready to go into the mail to my daughter-pattern for the mitts on Ravelry as Anna's Mittens.
Empty needles?  Of course not!  Socks are ready to be cast on and knitted toe up!


  1. Welcome back to the land of crafting!

  2. Wow' I'm glad you're ramping it up slowly...ha!!!

    Nice to see the SW fabric show up...does that means it is destined for a particular house in Jax Beach?!

    My winter set is so gorgeous!!! It was 52 here this morning, so it won't be too long before it's mitten season...

  4. Whoops, I just realized that I forgot to comment on the fireplace -- GO, DAD, GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  5. Nothing like the smell of wood burning in the winter! I love it and always can be found sniffing joyfully whenever I catch a whiff from the neighbors' fires.

  6. I adore how the headband turned out! Fantastic!!!

We put the last screws in the second vegetable bed.   Today, Bill will give me a lesson on painting with the sprayer to get them painted so ...
