Busy weekend

Despite the fact that we were incredibly busy this weekend, I did manage to work on some of my favorite projects!

While Dave was busy working outside at daughter Alison's house, I stayed cool inside and worked on round 13 of my Jan Stawasz Masterpiece. I managed to tat around two sections of motifs, which can be tricky with two grandchildren vying for attention! ;-)

I finished knitting my Morant scarf from Sequence Knitting. It was too short for a scarf, so I finished it off as a cowl. The yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage. The color is Baltic. I'm kind of hoping for some chilly days so that I can enjoy wearing this luxurious cowl!

Continuing through the book Sequence Knitting, I started Lyden in Knit Picks Preciosa Tonal, Bonsai. I really like both the yarn and the pattern!

Daughter Joanne's twins are due any day, so I decided I'd better get working on the baby quilts I bought weeks ago. These are just prequilted panels that I bind. I love giving them as baby gifts, but they're getting harder and harder to find. The lady who helped me at Walmart told me that she thinks they're discontinuing these panels. I purchased the last three that they had, and I'm going to be very sad if I can't find any more. They get softer with age, and they're a great size for tummy time on the floor. Maybe I should do some searching online. Otherwise, I may have to start piecing baby quilts... what torture! ;-)


  1. Both scarfs look lovely, I like the colours of both.
    Your mat is progressing, I look forward to seeing how far you get when I get back from holiday.
    I hope the birth goes ok and the baby quilts are finished in time.
    I don't know if I will wifi while away. So I will catch up when I get back.

  2. I certainly couldn't tat with grandchildren about! Good idea to make a cowl. Interesting stitch, it almost looks as though it's crocheted. It's annoying when a favourite item disappears off the shelves - I hope you can find the quilts online, or you'll be taking up another hobby!

  3. Maravillosos trabajos y muy hermosos los colores.El tapete espectacular.Besos

  4. Your work is all so admirable - you get so much done! And with kiddos around too. Kudos to you - and those grandies are so lucky to have you :)


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
