I feel really charged up after this weekend. My husband and middle son went to a Hunter's Safety Course from 8-3 on both Saturday and Sunday, plus my husband had to work Saturday evening. Our older children had varying activities and were mostly out of the house. I got a LOT done!
Thursday night I started one of the red dishcloths, I finished it Friday morning. I'm loving doing these dishcloths, so I took knitting with me to my friend's house. By Friday night, I had four! These are SO much fun to do. I used every scrap of the red yarn. The first ball made two dishcloths, with about 4 feet of yarn left, with the second ball, I needed that 4 feet to finish the second cloth. Yikes. I know to watch my tension when making these! I found cones of this cotton at Walmart in some nice colors, I'll be buying it from the cone from now on!
Thursday, I spent all day machine quilting the already cut fabrics for Humbug bags, now all I have to do is make the small handle and put them together. That will be done another day.
I spent a fair amount of time hand quilting and was able to finish the hoop quilt. I pulled out my machine to put the binding on and hand sewed it to the front while watching baseball. Since my machine was out anyway, I also sewed the next piece on the geese blocks. Here is the quilt I finished last night.
I have a few things that need to be done today, but should have a fair amount of time to spend quilting. I wouldn't let myself quilt on the new frame quilt until the hoop quilt was finished, so I'm very excited about quilting today.
Time to get to it!
