That’s Much Better

September 16, 2008

It is so much nicer outside today.  We went for a really long walk.  I’m looking forward to sleeping with the windows open tonight.  Mary is getting braver and I got some nice shots of her this morning.

I sat out back for a while this afternoon and knitted.  I’m just about ready to start the fingers.  i will be glad when these are done and I can go on to something else.

I laid my quilt to get a better look at it and decided that it doesn’t look bad at all.  I didn’t work on it today.  Too nice outside.

Too Humid to do Anything Outside

September 15, 2008

I worked a long time on my quilt, probably too much.  The last lines don’t look good and I may take them out and do something different.  I did finish part three and I decided that part four was unnecessary.  I started on part five, but I should not have.  I was getting tired and it’s messy.  Maude, however, does agree that I should have stopped earlier.  She would have had more time to sleep.

Mary was out for a while this afternoon.

I knit for a while this evening, but it doesn’t look too good either.

Quilting Along

September 10, 2008

We had quite a bit of rain this afternoon.  Is this rainstorm  the remnants of a hurricane also?  This one came rather quickly.  I was sitting out back, happily knitting, when it started to pour.  I have almost finished the contrast band and then it’s on to the dreaded thumb gusset.

I couldn’t decide where to begin on my quilt.  I laid it out flat so that I could get a good overall look at it.  All those diagonal blocks were a bit daunting.  After looking at it for a while, I came up with a plan.  It consists of seven parts.  The main design  is part one through four.  I finished part one last night.  It was the hardest and the most confusing.  I had to stop several times to get my bearings.  Currently, I am half way through part two and it’s easier than part one.  Part three will take a little longer, but should not be as confusing as part one.  Part four should be a piece of cake.  Part five is the inner border.  Part six is the other border which is all half squares and will probably take more time than the inner border.  Part seven is the final binding which will also drive me crazy.

I am sorry for forgetting to include a picture of Mary yesterday.  Thanks Christine.
