Assembled

Just in time… I’m doing laundry, running errands, packing, and finishing up this HeartStrings top. 20130828-190907.jpg

I’m also going to cast on a hurricane hat using this pretty red/purple yarn. If it turns out OK, it will be for my sister.

Assembled

I finished the assembly of this HeartStrings top I started yesterday at the sew-in. Blocks were pieced by AnnG.

I always press these seams open to decrease the bulk from the foundation and encourage everyone assembling our HeartStrings blocks to do the same. It takes more time but the top lies much flatter and is easier for the volunteers to quilt.

I also finished piecing my Black/White/Blue HeartStrings blocks and they’re ready to assemble.

Play…sew…knit

More of the same going on around here.

Chris, Becky, and Rae came for the day. Rae loves the pool.

With company coming and going I needed some quick easy sewing rather than something I needed to lay out so I cut and sewed another Quick Strippie.

Keith and I ended the day with a quiet evening listening to music and more progress was made on my Camp Loopy Project 3 shawl.

Another Quick Strippie

I had some time this afternoon and evening and decided to cut out and piece another Quick Strippie.

I also soaked and then pinned my Vortex shawl. I finished knitting this the end of April but didn’t have anywhere at home that I could block it. I’m using the guest bed since I won’t need it until this weekend.

Assembled

The sashed tumblers are assembled. I need to get a better photo so maybe Keith will hold it up for me this weekend. I will be putting some brief instructions up on the website later but for now, I’m going to take a hike and then spend a couple hours by the pool.

Assembled

I never get tired of these cute little Strippies — Kitty Strippie is now assembled.

This one may end up as a gift rather than a donation but I’ve got others to finish for donation … And just bought some more fabric at Tiny Stitches yesterday for a couple. Normally I just buy the focus print like this cute dinosaur one and pull the others from my stash.

Occasionally, I’ll buy all the fabrics … Like these three.

Instructions for making my Quick Strippie

Assembled

I probably should have walked first and sewn later but I was anxious to sew and now its raining. Maybe it will clear up so I can take a hike later.

The Strips and Strings Log Cabin blocks are assembled. It’s dark inside and wet outside so there’s no good place to take a photo.

Assembled

I pieced these HeartStrings blocks during our Memorial Day sew along and now the top is assembled and my sewing machine stored away for our Holiday weekend. Chris and his family will be coming up and spending the weekend with us.

20130703-162409.jpg

I’ll knit for a while and see if the rain clears up enough for me to take a walk

On my Design Wall

Hard to believe it but this green hourglass top is finally finished!

After a light lunch, I’ll head downstairs to quilt.
