small sample of my crazy quilt embroidery

About Me

I am a consumate crafter. I knit, quilt both sane and crazy, scrapbook, bead, mosaics and any other thing I can think of along the way. Someday I also hope to do real glass jewelery and stained glass but those have to wait until I have room and more time.

It's a Beautiful Day!!

Yes-it is such a beautiful day!! I have not been able to post for awhile due to work and weather issues but I have been busy with needlework nontheless. Since it was so nice outside I decided to take my current pics outside. First of all I have Katie's Wonderful Wallaby sweater completely done, blocked and all. I wish the pictures did it justice. Even tho I do not personally like the color combo she chose it is still a very nice sweater. The pattern is one I will continue to use over and over. In fact I am already knitting older DGD hers in a red/rust/brown combo and am up to where the upper part of the pocket joins back into the sweater. I wanted to take a pic but honestly there are just too many needles going on to show it well. So maybe next week it will be ready for its photo debut.

I have gotten my crazy color socks done and have moved on to the chain link socks from the Six Socks KAL that I recently joined. This pattern is fun but the colors I chose are pretty boring. One might call them classy and timeless but I won't be making any more dull colored socks soon!!!! This pattern has been a easy one to work despite working with 2 colors in the round. I only worked on these after work last week and a little at work one slow day. Hopefully I will finish this sock this coming week and start its mate. I want to be able to get the next KAL socks done before the 2 months alloted to I can start on time with the next pair.
Today is Super Bowl Sunday but DH and I are not into football in the least so for now I am being bombarded with a DVD of the Animaniacs that DH is watching. I have to admit tho that I am particularly fond of "Pinky and the Brain" I love when Pinky asks what are we going to do tonight and the Brain always answers " We are going to do what we do everynight, Pinky. Take over the World!!" So for now I am going to sign off and go take over the world.

I can't believe how fast you knit. I'm still working on my first Chain Link sock. Granted I don't work on it everyday. I like Katie's sweater.

Started sorting the sewing room fabric. When that's finished it all goes in the closet and the room will be done. Finally! (except of course my cutting table which B still has to build)
