Yarn news

Over the weekend, I took a mini break from fabric. Well, Friday night, I did finish my swap blocks and prepped the packages, but that was all that I did with fabric the whole weekend. I had plans to work on more, but it didn't happen.

Saturday morning, I signed up on Ravelry with the ID of JillQuilts. After that, I ran some errands - post office, grocery, etc - and then got back home around 1. The dogs and I ate and then I ended up ripping the paper off of 5 paper pieced blocks from Heather. Ok, so this was fabric related, but this was it, I promise! LOL

I decided that the bedrooms and sewing area needed a good once over and after a few hours, the dogs told me it was time to nap! But I was too amped up to nap so I picked up my knitting. I ended up knitting and crocheting and watching TV for the rest of the weekend. So relaxing! And great quality time with the dogs! Max was very happy!

Here is what I got done - a dishcloth that I started last Monday night... I think that I got the right side and the wrong side messed up when I did the ending scallop. And my stitches were way tight so it is curling a little. But it is still usable!

And I did a granny square for the afghan. I'm really digging the colors and I liked how quickly this square went together. Unfortunately, it was a little small and I didn't have a larger hook. After a quick stop at Michael's after work, I picked up 2 larger hooks and tried one and it works much better!

Today, I got my H1N1 shot at work. It has made me extremely sleepy all day! In spite of this, I was still able to adjust the pattern that I choose for a super secret quilt so that I can use more of the fat quarters that it calls for and I will have very little waste. Woo hoo! And since Barb and I are shopping this weekend, I will be able to pick up the additional fabric that I need and that won't be supplied from my stash! I am anxious to start this quilt!!

Ok, now it's bedtime! Night!

Your dishcloth and afghan blocks turned out great. I am having problems with the WS and RS too. Practice, practice, practice.

It was very interesting for me to read that blog. Thanks for it. I like such themes and anything connected to this matter. I would like to read more soon.
