i am participating in this yarn along.
novels tend to absorb me in the summer time.
melissa coleman's this life is in your hands was pretty much one of the best books i read all summer.
however, with the cold weather moving in slowly, i have moved toward working on readying my winter goals....
a quilt for our bed is numero uno. that is aside from all of our new sweaters (and 2 for me). the modern log cabin quilting guide is just the answer for my new quilt project. fyi- i have only ever made crib sized quilts, and i am not sure that i would call them all tremendous successes. this might be attributed to my pesky, i can figure this out on my own, and their must be an easier way to do this, attitude toward sewing. you would think, after sewing for this many years, i would have moved past that. but here i sit, in the land of stubbornness. ironically, this only happens with sewing, and not knitting. hmmm, deep thoughts.
the above sweater is still the levenwick.
it turns out that lately i have so much to say and so much in my head that when i sit down to get it out of my head and on to paper, or blog, it gets all jammed up and nothing comes out. i think this might mean big things.
in response to said overload, Crosby and i have been taking our bodies outside as much as humanly possible. with the cool winds moving in, it proves to be the perfect place for us to both sit and just be. Him with a few discovery blocks and me with my knitting, a book, or my journal. tomorrow i will be here with a new weekly series called on the blanket. which is where i will be until the snow moves me inside.
ps. have you been following my weekly ice cream cone recommendation?
