Last night I should have been quilting some more on the Starstruck top, but I have to confess that I simply couldn't face another evening of quilting. I've been working on it solidly for days, and I'm just over it right now! I won't have it done in time to finish the binding tomorrow, but I really don't mind. I definitely needed a change of pace.
I saw on Crazy Aunt Purl's blog a few days ago a very cute cream coloured scarf she's working on, and thought I'd have a looky for a similar pattern on line. I found a cute one at Mim Knits. You can click here to download the free pattern, it's very nice.
Don't look too closely at my efforts, it's been a while since I've done any knitting on regular needles, and an even longer time since I've done any cabling. Regardless though, this should be a fun 'take along' project, and one that will take me some time. I think it's supposed to finish at around 7ft long!
Today was my day for teaching at the quilt store. My class was in the afternoon, but in the morning I volunteered to help out. The quilt group I belong to - the Wynn Vale Quilters - was having a visit to the shop, and when a big group visits it can get quite busy with all the cutting and stuff. We were just worn out by the time the girls moved on to their lunch stop, and a good time was had by all.
Also shop related - I've had an idea for a class later on in the next term, so Cheryl has supplied me with a couple of charm packs so I can put some samples together. I'll get started as soon as I've finished up with my current deadlines.
Ohhh, and I keep forgetting to mention. When I posted the picture of the table runner for the bloggiversary draw, a couple of girls asked me about binding on unusual angles. I plan to make up some more hexagon pieces for my Mum soon, so when I get to the binding, I'll show you how I apply the binding. It's super easy, I promise!
Well, that's it from me, I'll catch up with you all again really soon! x o x
