October meeting

This time it was a really small Stricktreff just Betty, Britta and me. Britta was our hostess and we enjoyed spending some of her childfree Saturday with her. (Smile.) Britta, I think I did not too badly with the photo this time?

Betty once again managed to leave with more stash than she arrived with, but some of the stash she arrived with went home with me, so I am not complaining. Lovely brown yarn, the one with pale ice blue and white and brown is already balled up. Thanks Betty!

Finally something Finished

Finally I have a FO, even though these are simply my train knitting socks I finally finished them and can get on with completing some of the other WIPs.

Quilter's Horoscope

My mum will roll on the floor laughing when she reads this:

Virgo – August 24 to September 22
Virgo is meticulous and fussy when it comes to patchwork and quilting. They never rush any project but pay scrupulous attention to every detail from cutting, to piecing, to quilting. The downside to their fastidiousness is that they always notice mistakes in other quilter’s creations no matter how minor. If you want to know the exact amount of fabric required for any size quilt, ask a Virgo. They have an uncanny knack for making such calculations. Virgos tend to take up quilting at a younger age then other women. They don't have a problem balancing their lives and making time for career, partner, children and quilting.

I am a casual piecer and love working with scraps so I don't have to figure out any yardage requirement, but still I am virgo. Go figure.
