Usually I like to do one project at a time. I know there're folks who delighting in having seven knitting projects, 3 writing projects, five sewing projects and a dresser they are stripping and refinishing, all going at the same time. I can't do that. I somehow wound up with three half-finished quilts and two knitting projects going at once, and it galled me like a burr under the girth strap. So last Thursday MJ and I finished the trip around the world quilt, and I felt better. Yesterday, I put the final seam into this quilt, and my heart is eased. One of the reasons the pieces don't line up perfectly is because I forgot whether I was putting in quarter inch, or half-inch seams, and even managed to throw in a few three-quarter inch seams as well. this was a design that came to me in a dream, and could stand more refinement. But I like it.
I pieced the back with leftovers and sort of enjoy the random errata of it. And what an easy palette to work with! I still have lots of brown fabric left, so at least one more brown quilt is in the offing. But not till I finish piecing a back for one more and tying the knots in that one and this one.
As for the knitting, I am still on the dead fish hats kick, and will post goldfish hat photos tomorrow. I have started a rainbow trout to enter into the county fair, and will enter the goldfish into the state fair. And then there is a car project that requires no counting or following of patterns, being a garter-stitch jacket knitted sideways.
But meanwhile, I am getting a serious longing to do embroidery. Maybe I should make myself an apron.
