A Pleasant Afternoon

I was able to spend a very pleasant afternoon in my sewing room today. And even managed to get the upper left corner of my civil war quilt done (pictured above). Yea!! Looks like my "quilt wall" has finally crumbled. I guess that what happens when you download a new quilt pattern or two. :) Pam Bono has a really nice free pattern at her site http://www.pambonodesigns.com/ . Now that my motivation has returned it's time to tackle the other quarters of this quilt. How fun!!

Quilting isn't the only area in which I've made a bit of progress lately. I actually managed to squeeze in a bit of knitting time yesterday in which I finally finished the left hand side of the lace sweater I've been working on (for way too long!). I just need to put the live stitches on a piece of waste yarn and then I'll be ready to cast on the right front side of the sweater. I'm real pleased with the way it's turning out though. Can hardly wait for it to be finished so that I can enjoy wearing it. :)


  1. Your quilt is coming along nicely and looking good, and the sweater is looking great, too. I sure do like that quilt.

  2. Thanks, Candace. I hope to get the second quarter of the quilt up on the design wall today. It would also be nice if I were able to cast on for the second side of my sweater.

  3. Your welcome, sounds like you have a busy day planned. Thank you for visiting my blog, and for the nice comments about my new goodies, and my brothers. They are wonderful to me. My younger one said I should photograph my thread holder with thread on it, so I guess I better do that since he sacrificed a bit of his pinkie finger for it.
