Interesting Week

Well, this week was definitely different! Tues., I was standing by my desk, reaching into my overhead bin when the clips in back gave way. I think what it hit was my glasses as the damage to my face seems to lay where my glasses would hit...

day 1-you can see the steri-strips and a slight discoloration on my cheekbone.
day 2- the color on my cheek is getting brighter, but the swelling is going down.

today (Sat morning) the bruise has 'matured' - to use the ER doctor's words. I should make quilts that arehalf this colorful!
but I received some lovely flowers! Roses from a co-workers and daiseys from the people who make the bins!
But I do have a finished quilt top to share with you. The pattern is called "Fat Friday" and I made it out of Kaffe Fasset and similar fabrics. Can hardly wait to get it quilted!

It's been months, hasn't it?

Lord love a duck, I didn't realize it'd been this long since I've added to this thing. Some days - I've been busy. Others - I've just been sidetracked, either quilting or knitting - - or both.

Acutally have gotten quite a bit accomplished and I'll add some pics shortly. I finished some mittens and then made the mistake of looking in Ravelry for mitten groups. I found a WONDERFUL one. They have a thread/challenge going - to make 11 pairs of mittens in 2011. Actually there are 2 where pictures/patterns are posted. Another where they're posted and you can comment/discuss. I'm already on pair 6! Easily distracted right?

One pair I made doesn't count as I started them in 2010.

These were so much fun - even tho they're way big on me...from the book Mostly Mittens.

Since then I've gone on to make fun mittens, warm ones, difficult ones. check out the thread and I know you'll be inspired. And everyone has posted links to the patterns - they're all enablers!
