Friday


Sometimes it's fun to give yourself a challenge.
Today I gave myself the finish it up on Friday challenge. ;)
aka...crazy mom quilt link up and Sarah's whoop whoop link up on fridays.
I had lots of other things to do......
But challenges are FUN!

In my orphan drawer I had the borders shown here....thinking I'd use them column style in a baby quilt.
There they sat.


Instead.....
I made a nice big square and surrounded it with the long strips of pre-sewn scraps!


Happy scraps!
Yeah for a finish!

I also have a knitting project going and have learned something about myself.

I'm a quilter at heart.



Choosing just ONE yarn to make a sweater does NoT come easy. 
Throwing LOTS of scraps together does!

Anyone else have that problem?

I told my friend after yarn shopping recently that I really need PRACTICE buying yarn! 
Think hubby will go along with that one?
hAh hah!

I have a great knitting book I've been enjoying. She loves knitting like I love quilting. ;)

What a treasure of a book!

Have a great weekend friends! 
Maybe it will include sewing, knitting, reading......OR.....all three!

  2. Really cute quilt! Your project is knit from the top down? Had not seen that before. Many years ago, when I did a lot of crafts, I told myself to pick one. It was quilting. However, now I'm getting into mixed media in addition- uh oh. So I know what you mean!

  4. What a HAPPY quilt. Love all of those colors. Congrats on meeting your challenge. I try to keep my knitting projects small just so I don't have those issues. My larger knitting projects get left on the side as soon as I get bored and back to qulting I go.
