9 down and I don't want to know how many to go

I started sewing the circles down. It's a by hand thing which honestly I like but as I was putting it away I looked. It took one night to do 9 and that's just a corner. What did I get myself into? What was I thinking making a queen size like this?  Well the good thing about this stuff is there is no deadline. 

I also washed all of that yarn I spun during the Tour de Fleece. 

And there's another knitter in the house

Her first knitting. She learned and kept going until she finished and learned how to bind off :) She already has something lined up. She wants to make a hat and socks. Between the two of them I might just have to lock my stash up

Tis the season

For dodging these

Went running this morning. Just a short run ( time constraints) and discovered the acorns are ready. Only got hit once today.   Acorns are everywhere on all of my run routes. I look at it like an added adventure to running.

Good news

Well I found some interfacing while I was going through things. Yeah!! So I cut out the rest of the circles and even had a little left over just in case I need more.  For this Christmas quilt I am going more for throw size so I should be ok. 
With the weather changing and my finger healing my thoughts are moving toward wooly things. I washed everything and it's drying. I also found out that Mj will need a new hat. Hence winding up the gorgeous red yarn. Dyed by my friend it is special. 

Non gory picture of my new scar. Healed pretty quick :)

New plan

Well silly me forgot that I used the white fabric in other projects :(. So instead I decided to try this circle quilt with some Christmas fabric scraps I have. 
K is behind me sewing. 

Well that worked out until I ran out of interfacing. :(  So even though I did see today nothing really accomplished. These two project will go on the back burner until there's some extra money around. Tomorrow I am going to go throughout fabric and see if there is something I can start and finish. Fingers crossed.

Next sewing project

19 colors (reds, oranges, yellows, greens,  blues and purples - Roy G. Biv ) and 6 different sized circles (they are drawn in the squares) will hopefully turn into a quilt big enough for our bed. If not I'll have to get more fabric. This will be definitely a long term since it will require a lot of hand sewing.

New cross stitch

My finger is healing but still sore. I actually tried to knit yesterday but the way I knit the needle hits the cut. Could not have been in a better spot. I did however finish this

Minions for MJ. Still needs to be ironed and I have to figure out how to frame it.
