DSCN8611DSCN8610DSCN8612To say that I am preoccupied with my Spider Web quilt would be an understatement.  I’ve gotten to that slippery slope in quilting where I am so anxious to assemble and quilt it that everything else slips to the back burner.  The problem is that this particular pattern wants attention, a lot of attention, and it’s not given to QUICK anything.  Each block consists of many fabric choices.  It’s obvious to me who is leading whom!  (mutter mutter bad words).

So this is my explanation as to why my Pie Making Day Giveaway did not get given last week.  But I promise to pull it together this week.  Sneak peek for those who think I’m full of it…IMG_0090The end of June has been hectic.  At work – computer allocations and a tearful goodbye to a colleague that I will miss dreadfully, each and every day.  At home – preparing to fly out to Taos, NM to witness my wonderful (and only) nephew’s wedding.  Beside wardrobe and  securing the best care for my animals, I am bewildered by WHAT KNITTING TO TAKE!!!!  I think that I’ve settled on one pair of socks and a shawl.  But should I take my Signature circular needles and risk having them confiscated?  Can anyone advise?

        thanks for the link, yes, I agree, Cath is one of my quilt sheros ! It always surprises me how blocks can look entirely different through fabric choices.

    You’re spiderweb quilt is going to be gorgeous! Spiderwebs are one of my all time favorite quilts. I just found you’re blog while visiting Teje Nero & Hanna. I’m not sure about the circular needles.
