On My Toes…

Both pairs of socks are done! The sad part is that here in the middle of April, I still need wool socks!


Ooh-this is one nasty picture! Look at those bunions! Sorry-maybe you don’t want to look!

…and on my needles! This is the first time I have started cuff down, circular needle socks by myself.  Yay!


Not a whole lot to show, but I am making these babies:


Are you working on anything exciting today?

What I Learned From This Quilt

1. That finished is better than perfect.  (Although I still spent some time picking out stitches)


2. Wonky sometimes works.  I think that the jar tops are my favorite part!


3. My micro-stippling is ok but would be better with an open toe foot – so I ordered one!

4. I can use the foot to help me gauge distances when quilting. (I wish I had figured that one out sooner!)


5. The quilting that takes the longest (in terms of starting and stopping) doesn’t always show up.  For example, the brown, above.

6. I think that I switched the border and binding fabrics. My less than perfect quilting would have been less noticeable!


7. I am becoming a little more confident in my machine quilting!

What did you learn today?
