Not a lot of sewing has been done today. None at all, actually. But yesterday I loaded Barney onto the Megaquilter and began quilting:
Socks for Steve -- almost ready to begin the gusset. They will not be finished by Christmas.

This is the book I most recently finished, and I quite enjoyed it. Jane Austen fanfiction is always entertaining but this was a cut above most that I've read. I really feel the author successfully got inside Mr. Darcy's head and told a story that merges and diverges from Pride and Prejudice in a totally believable way. It will make you want to reread the original just to see which scenes are changed and how.
12 shawls in 2012 project I completed. I was going to save it for another post but I may want to take some blog vacation time over the next week, so I might as well share it now. They're in sequential order, clockwise from top left, with the center photo a closeup of the bottom right shawl. Of the 12, they all used stash yarn (or handspun from stash fiber) since I did not buy any yarn this year. Shawls #2, 3, 9, 10, and 12 were from handspun. Shawls #5, 6, 7, and 9 used more than 500 yards (they make a big deal about that in the Ravelry group). Shawl #7 "Black Roses/ Lady MacBeth" was more like 1000 yards of cobweb-weight cashmere, reclaimed from a thrift store sweater and dyed with Wilton's, and I beaded that one. So it was definitely my agony-and-ecstasy project for the year.
Now that I know how to make collages with Photoscape, I'll have to do a retrospective for my 2012 quilts and the ufo's from this year.
From what I can see, your Jack's chain quilt looks very pretty. Your Easy Street is coming along well...Friday and clue #5 are almost here!!! I love Jane Austen fan-fiction, so I'll have to look for "His Good Opinion". If you like to read other Jane Austen fan fiction, you might want to check out Meredith's blog at http://janeaustenreviews.blogspot.com/ She reviews all sorts of Jane books.
The quilt on the long arm machine is wonderful, I am looking forward to seeing it once you have finished quilting it. Please post a pic of it when it is done.
