Carolina Christmas

The first step for the new Quiltville mystery is up: Step 1. I haven't yet selected fabric. But I willllll.

Mirror Mirror

I have found Operation Beautiful and love this hotel mirror:

Patchwork Weekend

Last weekend I spent in my hometown and took a class through my mum's quilt group. It was on free cut ovals and mine is turning into leaves. I have made additional blocks and rearranged the blocks since the picture was taken, but at least it gives you an idea of what I was up to.

I also took some books for my dad to read and he had already finished one on Saturday evening, so he must be enjoying it.

Knitter's as avatar

Now it's offical: knitting is in, Yahoo has an avatar for it:

When you see it on yahoo, she actually knits a short straight piece and then it flies of her needles. Fun.

Ishbel grows

I finally have gotten my groove with Ishbel. I am now on my third repeat of the A pattern and nary a mistake in all the lace so far and each caught in the next right side row. Wonder why this is so much easier then the plain knitting was? Probably because it keeps my interest. Of course coughing like crazy at work and getting send home for two sick days helped. I am now looking forward to wearing it!

Chez Leon

Outside our normal meetings we had a little one in the Café Chez Leon in Singen on Saturday. It was lovely, even though it was very loud. Thinking about that I believe home meetings are more us. It was nice meeting Babblesock and finally seeing Socke again. I am looking forward to the next meeting on the 28th.

My red sock is close to the heel so should get finished this week and then a pair for Bettina's kids will hopefully be done by the next meeting.

Sunday we lazed around and I cross stitched on my Indian lady.
