I read a lot of books - most recently The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag by Alan Bradley, Elantris by Brandon Sanderson, and Keep it Pithy by Bill O'Reilly. Never say I am not eclectic. I'm overdue for a book review day sometime soon.
I may not be sewing much, but Quarta whipped this little table-topper scrap quilt up Sunday afternoon while I was napping. It was from some scraps from that epic estate sale I went to last year, and she just improvised it up. Pretty cool for an 11-year-old.
So, should I even bother to set goals for April? Let's just modify the March goals:
- Knit the body of the sweater. Sleeves can be another month.
- Make small progress on the string star.
- Make small progress on the machine quilting of Farmer's Wife.
- Do a spring cleaning of the sewing area.
I'm really looking forward to Spring Break next week. I hope to get rid of the last of the pneumonia cough and have lots of time to read and craft. I've been too tired to stay up later than 9:30 most nights lately. Steve will be taking Secundus on college visits and I will try to keep the girls from going stir crazy here while not actually doing much. It sounds wonderful to me, but I'm afraid the natives will be restless.
I can't believe your neighbours have a pet dingo, here in Australia they are protected and we are not allowed to keep them as pets at all.
Have a great week.
That sounds like a month to see the back of, hope April treats you better. And I love your daughter's quilts, especially the colours in her last one, beautiful.
Sounds like an interesting month! Beautiful projects ;)
I'm very jealous of people who can knit and have the patience for it. Your knitting is really good, great colours. I can crochet a little but find I get bored as it just doesn't grow as quick at sewing... hmm a little impatient I think.
