New and Old

 I can say I am only a day late but the 12 Days of Christmas quilt top is completed!
It went together so easily I couldn't believe it was done in no time!
Now I need to find some fabric for the backing
and I will load it up on the frame
and turn it into a quilt!
I resurrected a languishing project-it must be at least a year that I left it alone!
I thought I could remember the instructions ( the pattern wasn't in the basket )
but  I made mistake after mistake and had to look it up and reprint it 
and then it was no time at all and I was on my way again.
I had thought about ripping this out but it is so pretty 
so I will keep knitting until I run out of yarn.
It is lace weight, so the yarn will run on forever which is well because I can't stand a skimpy shawl!


  1. Love your 12 Days of Christmas quilt top. I want to try the design but have not yet. Can't believe you got yours done so quickly and it looks fabulous.

  2. That quilt is just amazing. What a beauty!

  3. I'll say it again: I can't believe how quickly and beautiful you quilt!

  4. Fantastic finish, and a good resurrection of an old knit.

  5. Congrats on a great quilt finish. Love the blues in your shawl.

  6. Such a beautiful quilt top and shawl. I'm so glad you could reprint the instructions and carry on. It would have been a shame to rip it all out.

  7. 12 days looks AWESOME!
    And you know I love a pretty bit of lace!

  8. Those two blues look GREAT together.

  9. Wow, on the 12 day of Christmas seems so far away! Your quilt is just so lovely. Someone took a quilt out at a concert yesterday and I hated to see it put down on the grass !

I hoped to make 10 yesterday but I will make the other three today.  Nice to have the house deep cleaned--all corners tamed and the other sl...
