I spent most of the weekend sewing, but I don’t have anything to show for it. All of the projects are in different stages of "not yet finished." I have myself to blame for this: running out of thread seems to be a specialty of mine. And now, I can add math miscalculations to the list as I cut a two and a half yard piece of batting in to a completely unusable mess along with squaring a full size sheet incorrectly. Yikes. I think I might start chanting, "Measure twice, cut once" but I am not sure it would help.
The good news is that there are a few things making my heart race lately. The first is Sarah’s latest gocco swap. Oh boy! I love me some good looking notes. See the button on the right side bar? Click it and sign up. You know you want to.
Second is Pam’s February Lady Sweater. Seriously. I have spent a couple weeks deciding if I love this so much because it is the most perfect shade of green or because I really like the sweater. Turns out, I think it is both. So now I am on the hunt for the most perfect yarn in the most perfect green. You know, so I can knit the most perfect sweater. Preferably wool – suggestions? I won’t start it for awhile – the wrist, you know. But the girls and I are headed to my favorite place at the end of the week (another thing making my heart rate rise) and the tangled yoke is coming along. It is the only crafty thing I’m bringing. That will be either disastrous or genius (the wrist, you know). Only time will tell.
Finally, Blair sent Emily, Tracy and I our new assignment. (As an aside, can I just say how happy I am that Blair is back at the blog thing? So very happy – I really missed her words). I pulled out the dictionary – man, oh man! There are lots of choices with this word.
Cover. Noun and verb. My initial thoughts surprised even me. Wordplay is so fun – it gets me thinking in so many different ways.
Enough for a Monday morning. Back tomorrow with quilt news.
