Soft and Warm

 I used some vintage fabric in the stash to make some window valances for a nursery.
 And then I set to work on the pinwheel quilt.  I was very disappointed I didn't catch any kitties with my contact paper!

The Close to You shawl with the two lace weight yarns saw some progress tonight.  I need to knuckle down and finish that vest but I am not feeling like it!  So unlike me but that's the way it is!  It is a bit fiddly to change the colors in the middle of the row like this but it is working nicely and I do like the way it looks AND since I didn't have enough of either color alone, this is ideal.


  1. I love that vintage material! The pinwheel quilt was always one of my favorites. I really like how you quilted it. I am intrigued by a lace weight shawl that changes colors. That is a real adventure in knitting!

  2. You have VERY smart kitties! LOL

    The shawl is coming along very nicely.

  3. Your shawl color change is perfection! Love it. I change projects too

  4. Cats are such stinkers, and too smart for their own good -- or at least for ours. 😊

    Fun to be making a shawl that is so unique from others you've done!

As I was pulling this quilt from the machine after sewing on the binding, I was happily trimming threads and noted a snarl on the back.  And...
