Thursday Thoughts

'
Love harvesting vegetables from the garden.
This little bunch doesn't overwhelm me.....

But......THESE bunches do!
Last year the grape harvest exceeded my
ENERGY level.
;)
We'll see how this year goes!
 
My husband is trying to help keep the work at BAY
and has dried TWO BATCHES of raisins already!
 

LOVED finishing up the border on this one today!
 
All those 2" squares give this quilt some pizzazz!
 
I wasn't AT ALL sure how big this quilt would get.
It was ALL a work IN PROGRESS.
 
Amazingly enough it's ALMOST a TWIN size!
It'll be SUPER fun to throw this over one of the kid's beds this Christmas!
:)
Yep....
It DOES need to be quilted first!
 
 


This baby sweater, finished last week,
gave me CONFIDENCE I could maybe knit something for MYSELF!
 

I'm THIS far and
STUCK already.
:/
HELP!
Youtube....
HERE I come!

  7. Our grapes make raisins right on the vine... in other words they hide from view until they are raisins, and MMMMMMMMMM they are yummy.
    Love your Christmas quilt. Sweet.
    Can't help you with your sweater, but the baby one is grand, nice even stitches.
    Hugs
