Look, I am almost done. I think I will be able to have it bound off by the end of the month.
I think I only have about 10 rows of garter stitch rows: I am trying to do 3 rows a day but will have to bump it up in the next two days.
I have been working on my owl baby blanket: see it on the left side of the design wall. I tried to come up with a mixed up layout but I don’t really like it so will be changing it when I get all the blocks made.
I did think it was funny that I have two owl quilts on the design wall and see how different they are.
I did take a little time out to begin the applique for the last owl. I am always impressed at how a block changes as the applique stitches are applied, kind of like the impact of quilting stitches.
I was really happy to have found a use for the owl vase my daughter gave me for Mother’s Day. It is now the keeper of the straight knitting needles. I love being able to see them all in one place. I don’t have a lot of straight needles: I tend to use double pointed and/or circular. But I am gaining a larger collection as I start new projects.
Also in this picture is my Sigmund Freud doll, a picture of me with my parents and a picture of DH & I with individual pictures of our 4 children. In my studio I am not only surrounded by my current creativity but also by my own history. No wonder I am usually happy when I am in there.
