Two sides of the quilt binding on Hopscotch are done and on to the third side – about one side a day it seems – it is about all I sit down for I guess before I move to another project. The yellow dots are showing up pretty well on that second side aren’t they. I surely do hope to finish up this quilt on the weekend as it will be too cold to go outside anyway – I think all errands will be done today and I will hibernate Sunday for sure – Saturday morning will be warm enough to do whatever but the temperature will be dropping like a rock throughout the day.
I started all over on Ciera’s ponytail hat with a totally different yarn LOL – I had gotten about half way done with the purple yarn I was using and tried it on my head – it just didn’t look right – it was too small – tight on my small head and her head is a little larger. Also the yarn felt a little scratchy. I looked through the basket of yarn I have and felt them all and this one felt the softest – so started over and making it a bit larger now lets see how it goes once again. (this is what happens when you don’t have a clue how to make a hat and are winging it!)
One more Scrappy Basket done and on the wall. The next 3 or 4 will have light backgrounds and they will get mixed up a bit on the wall. Linking to Sarah’s Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Fort Worth Fabric Studio, and Crazy Mom Quilts and A Quilting Reader’s Garden and a new to me blog – Sparrow in Flight.
Marie at Quilt Bee posted some links to her cookie recipes. I need to check some of these out and see if there is something new to make this year – I think the Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread cookies sound delightful – kind of like my Ginger Cookies but with chocolate in them – maybe combine the two recipes in some way? Might give it a try!! We all like chocolate!!
Craftsy has a two day sale on some classes – might be worth it to check it out. Did you know you can gift a class – when you go to order a class look for the “gift this class” and follow the instructions.
