Why did I not know this before?

My first top-down, in the round project and I love it. Now I am working on the waist ribbing. It is Cathode by Stefanie Japel. It's a pattern on Knitty. It was really fast on the body but really slow on the ribbing. I am making it 8" long. The sleeves are short and I am very happy about that. Wool sweaters are too hot here in Texas. The ribbing is a dark rust. Striking.

Spring Break starts this week. I am taking this and Madden's sweater to the lakehouse.

I have a girl scout camp at the lake this weekend. I hope things work out. I am only worried about one girls. She has no filter on her mouth.

I think we'll brainstorm rules.

I am working on the Sweden quilt from International Mystery Quilt Tour (now defunct) at The Quilt Asylum. Sam wants it. It is all funky paisleys and polka-dots.

Web Sampler Block 2
Originally uploaded by orangeeener
Now that its March, I shall begin my quilt blocks for March. I have 6 online quilt blocks I've ordered over the years that I need to complete:
* HGTV Trip around the Block
* Web sampler Celebration Spring 2007
* Women of Grace and Charm
* The Fat Quarter Shop Designer Block of the Month
* Patchwork Party Spring 2007
* Patchwork Party Fall 2007
* Greenbaum's Quilted Forest Online Sampler Block I - April

This block was February from the Spring 2007 Web Sampler Celebration. It is Civil War reproduction fabric. It may be a gift for my Dad although I think he would like the colors of the Fall collection better but I have not even started those yet - next year, maybe, sigh.
