Well, that’s not quite true. I still have a design wall but there is nothing on it. I have been busy in other ways.
I have been quilting on the Funky Chickens and am now halfway done. See, it is finally off the floor.
Here is Chicken #5
And here he is in his close-up.
And this is Chicken #6
And not posing for his close-up.
And now we are working on #7 (background is done).
And #8 (background done). I only get about half a row done each day but I leave the quilting room with a big smile on my face.
And when I leave the quilting room I usually head for my lazyboy and these sticks. I am a little more than half-way through with this, my first sock and it also causes me to grin.
Of course I got a big belly laugh from DH when I slipped it on yesterday, just to see how much more of my foot it covers than last week.
And Sunday I finally got to work on something that will make it to the Design Wall next week. This is a block every other week quilt put out by the Fat Quarter Shop. I loved the picture of the finished quilt so I started it. I have the first 2 parts done and then got involved with knitting and just collected the installments. So Sunday I decided I needed to get back to work on it.
Just look at this cutting list for “one block!” Who ever wants to cut 40 1 1/2” squares? Well not me, but I did.
And now all those parts are waiting for me to put them together today. I pretty much have to get to work on this since I already have a plan for it.
Our daughter and SIL are on vacation in MD where they are visiting our son (her twin), DIL, and granddaughter. It is really fun to follow their trip on Facebook: we almost feel like we are with them all. Of course, a few pictures would be nice: hint, hint.
