A little of this, a little of that

I hadn’t planned for my last week before traveling again to be infringed upon with dental and medical appointments and the paint contractor but that’s what’s going on this week. I was up early so the painter could get started – first up for him is removing the wallpaper in the entryway. It’s a messy job and a bit of a challenge.  

 

My appointments are tomorrow and Wednesday so today I’m knitting, hand quilting, blocking, and piecing some Drunkard’s Path’s blocks. 

I started a new hat this morning

  
A scarf is already blocked and is drying  

 

Since I’ve completed all the piecing on my list of goals, I’ve pulled out and I’ve started piecing Drunkard’s Path blocks that were cut last year. It would be nice to at least get this UFO to the finished top stage. 
 

The Drunkard’s Path Blocks will become this quilt.

    Just love the varigated wools you use as well as the pattern, for the scarfs/wraps. Funny you should show the drunkards path blocks, I am deciding if I should do some as I brought a template the other week as well as the curve master foot, somedays deciding can take more time than making hahahahaha

    I wish I had your energy and ability to just get things done. I was proud of myself for making breakfast, putting a quilt on the frame, and cutting a couple of appliques for a different quilt. You get so much done and are an inspiration. The contractor would have tipped me totally off the rails.

    Do you use wood needles for all your projects? I’ve found I prefer them because they are so much less slippery. What brand of yarn are you using? It’s very pretty.

    UGH!! Wallpaper removal ranks up with dental repair work on my list!! We once didn’t buy a house we liked because they had HORRIBLE wallpaper in every single room. Each room was different and it would have cost us close to $10,000 (at the time) to have it removed. I never wallpapered anything ever again in any house we’ve owned. Some people love it … I hate it!! Your drunkard’s path will be beautiful … I also feel so good getting UFOs to an almost done stage! Linda

    I am most interested in seeing your method for sewing those curved edges in your latest quilt. You have lovely pieces to show for your time and efforts, by the way. Thanks for sharing and happy stitching.

    I would be interested in the name of the pattern for the beautiful scarf. Do you have favorite needles and yarn that you use?

    We recently cleaned our double garage. What a chore! We found a big box of household items that had been stored away after we had a fire that destroyed our first home. The box is wet from humidity and there are skeletons of brown recluse spiders that had made themselves at home. Definitely throwing a bug bomb in that box first and then throwing all the contents away! That smoke smell lasts forever. I sure don’t want to bring it into the new house. Keep a cool attitude. This, too, shall pass! and you will have a beautiful condo afterwards. Love the beautiful scarf and all your energy! Joyce Barham in the Ozark Mountains in Northern Arkansas.
