Design Wall Monday - Coming Along

 Woodland Trails

I have all of the rows done now for my Woodland Trails quilt using the pattern Northern Lights by Jaybird Quilts, except for one row which has gone mysteriously missing. I am so happy with this quilt, and that what I have created is better than I had envisioned.  I am excited to get this sewn together, and then the scary part will come when I have to cut along the sides to make it rectangular.

On The Needles

I got my sock problem figured out. I went back to the store where I got my sock yarn and the woman who works there told me that yes, socks can take more than one ball to make.

I bought another ball, and then couldn't resist buying another 3 balls of the same yarn in a very pretty colourway. I am back to knitting again and it will be perfect to do while watching the Olympics!

Design Wall Monday - Northern Lights

Northern Lights

So far, my Drop and Give me Twenty has been going quite well. It is keeping me focused on my quilting. I have been surprised at how much can get done in a small time period. It is wonderful to see this quilt come together. Once I started, I realized that I have enough hexagons and fabric left over to make a second one,  though it will be slightly different.

Drop and Give Me Twenty

I have decided to join the Drop and Give Me Twenty hosted by Quilting Hottie Haven.  For the month of February, I am committing to quilting for 20 minutes each day. I have been good at getting projects done lately, or small items made, but I have not made much time for quilting. This will be a good exercise for me.

 Ready to go!

The project I am going to be working on is a quilt that I hope to have done for June. The fabric is cut and ready to go. I am really looking forward to seeing how well 20 minutes works. I may need to use it for other facets of my life.
