Miscellaneous Chatter

I had a productive, enjoyable weekend!

I'm still knitting dishcloths like crazy, but am now feeling the quilting bug again so hope to spend some time on the frame quilt. With it being mid-October, I'm thinking of Christmas and how I was hoping to have the 2 quilts I need done for Christmas both finished by Thanksgiving, which is now only 5 1/2 weeks away. WEEKS. Yikes. After so much knitting, my quilting callous is gone, so I have to build it back up again. Tonight there are two playoff games on TV, so I plan to quilt during those and hopefully will be able to settle in and make some good progress.

I had a friend stop by Saturday with something for Ruthie. They were cleaning out their daughters' room and their youngest is now too big for this. Since it was in nearly perfect condition they thought Ruthie needed a piece of furniture her size. It's a little foam couch that folds out into a bed. She opened it and laid down, closed it and sat and played with it and on it all evening, at bedtime she climbed in and went to sleep. The Winnie the Pooh cover zips on and it's like a sleeping bag on top.

Our kids were coming and going all weekend, which is typical these days, I was happy to put up my feet and knit :)

So I'm off, to do more knitting and some hand quilting. I've made a good sized dent in my housework and laundry for the day, so I'm looking forward to a relaxing afternoon and evening ahead.

Happy quilting!

Hi - Bren sent me over to look at your dishcloths. I have never seen that pattern before. They look lovely. I'm busy knitting dishcloths for my kids' youth group raffle coming up soon. I'm just doing a very boring but easy to finish pattern.
