I'm feeling...Sad
I'm seeing...Derby playing outside
I'm thinking...How can he act so happy when he is so sick (Derby is my daughter's dog)
I'm appreciating...Being here with Kendall
I'm cooking...herbed chicken, green beans and creamy rice
I'm planning...nothing
I'm reading...Diane Mott Davidson, The (something) Torte, I can't remember the name
I'm jeans and a plaid cotton shirt
I'm creating...knitted socks
I'm hearing...Kendall laugh at Dora
I'm enjoying...the weather, even the rain
I'm sharing...nothing today

Obsessed with Socks

I seem to be obsessed with socks. I am in the home stretch on the first pair and have already cast on the second pair. This time on dp needles working top down. I haven't worked on any of my sewing projects for a couple of weeks now. I just want to knit.
These are the beautiful swap blocks that arrived a couple weeks ago. I am going to do a simple lay out of 6 x 6 with 3 small borders and one wide one. I need to order the fabric today. I want to get this quilt finished and displayed in my living room. Such a nice memory of Marlene.

I purchased a sock book this week. It is pretty fun with the flip pages. All kinds of possibilities.

I do have to get some work done today. Another customer quilt is on the agenda along with repair to a comforter. I hope to squeeze in a little time to work on the t-shirt quilt and of course I will be knitting a little this evening.

Busy, Busy

I took on the task of making a t-shirt quilt for a customer. These are a few of the shirts. I think the quilt will be a queen size. I have about 1/2 of them fused, then onto finding a good lay out.

Little Kendall was intent on egg coloring. She seemed to have a good time but it was all over too soon. I still haven't figured out how to remove an extra photo so she's here twice.

Knitting is coming right along. I have finished the heels and am in the home stretch. I have cast on a second pair of socks, this time on dp needles. I think I already know that I like the toe up ones better.
