A Little Bit of This and That...

Since I finished the
of making quilts for my 11 nieces and nephews,
I've been working on
Odds and Ends.

This week I started a
to give as a wedding gift in October.

The top is sewn together and is waiting to be quilted.
This pattern goes together so quickly
and really shows off the gorgeous Christmas fabric,
"Holiday Flourish" by Robert Kaufman.

Giving Christmas Tree skirts as wedding gifts
has become my standard gift, when appropriate.

I made this months blocks for "Gravity."
The colors aren't quite as bright as shown here.
These blocks are growing on me.

The pinwheel and snowball blocks I made a while ago from the
Anna Marie Horner fabric have been sewn together.

This top reminds me of sparklers. 
I need to find some fabric for borders and 
don't have any other fabrics of hers in my stash. 
With her fabrics being so bold and different,
I'm thinking I need to continue with using hers for the borders.
This might mean some shopping is in order!

On the Knitting front....

I finished my "Socks that Rock" socks
and I love them!
These were made with #3 needles,
casting on 60 stitches.
They are loose on me, but they will be so warm.

These are going to be anklet socks....
something I have not made before now.
They will go together more quickly though!

It's a hodge podge of projects today, 
but it's been fun to bounce from project to project this week.

Please visit Whoop Whoop
and Patchwork Times to see what others are working on this week.

Happy Friday!

I'm sitting here shaking my head in disbelief, smiling of course. How on earth does she get so much accomplished!!!

What a busy lady you are! Love the gravity blocks, so gorgeous! Christmas is too hard to wrap my head around right now! Even though I know it will be here soon!

You've been busy! I thought I had been a bit productive, but now I feel a bit lazy. All your projects are lovely. I particularly like those socks.

What a nice auntie you are! Love all the quilt projects, especially the tree skirt. Great socks, too!

You have lots of lovely projects going on and I love, love, love those socks! I've never made any with size 3 needles, but that would seem real fast after using ones!
