We have had some lovely, cool mornings and I am taking advantage of that to do some sewing, knitting, and ironing.
First up was getting a start on this new string quilt. I have made at least four quilts using this method and it is a fun way to mix and match. I have 16 blocks completed and want to make 20 more. They stitch up quickly.
I have a shawl just past 55% complete and have started a new pair of socks. I have really stumbled on these socks. First with the cuff, then with stripes that were not working for me. I ended up starting over with a new pattern. We will see how that goes.
Finally, I altered the sleeves on one of my favorite tops (from long to short to make it more wearable), did some mending on the hem of a versatile summer dress, and ironed a few summer tops.
I know that this is quilt show weekend in Sisters Oregon. I have been a few times and would love to go again one day. Instead, I plan to prep a few more blocks and browse my quilting magazines over a cup of coffee. Seems like a fitting compromise.
