It's done nothing but rain, rain, rain around here for what seems like all week. We haven't had coffee on the deck but once all spring - it's cold as well. So my evenings have been spent reading or cross stitching. We're in the midst of planning a baby shower for Jenny, and yesterday I was just itching to knit or crochet a baby afgan. Quilts are wonderful, but something knitted snuggles so much nicer.
Isn't this afgan gorgeous?! I found it on Ravelry, but you can get the pattern here as well. I don't have many colors in my stash of yarn, so I won't be working on this project - but I'd love to. Plus I don't need one more project. Hopefully the weather will be warm soon; I hate to work with yarn when it's nice and warm outside.
So during this three-day weekend, my sewing has consisted of finishing this mug mat,
stitching another one of these,
and binding this quilt - a project with my TT quilt group for the NICU at a local hospital.
I made almost 25 blocks for my Farmer's Wife quilt at the retreat a couple weeks ago. I'm still about that many behind. I'm doing a block of the month through Primitive Gatherings, and the fabrics are excellent; I wouldn't have been able to find these fabrics in this area. This quilt will be one of my favorites once it's completed, and my goal is to have it finished by the end of summer. The final installment comes in May, so I'll spend the rest of this weekend celebrating Easter and working on my blocks.
