I have been snatching moments to carry one with my Houndstooth quilt, or as I think of it now, the You Ain't Nothing But Like A Hound dog quilt. My main worry is of muddling up the greys. Some of the greys are very close in tone and it would be oh so easy to get them in the wrong order. There are 10 rows of 10 blocks and I have joined together the blocks within 5 1/2 rows. That makes it over halfway!,
I have been thinking of what to back this with. I can see it with a purple swirl or whorl, or a paisley pattern. It is for my daughter. I may have to sell her on this one, but Momma knows best. There's a lovely fabric in Ikea but unfortunately there is no purple in the colourway. Apart from that small disadvantage it is perfect.
I was buying wadding and thread for secret sewing and was looking for inspired backing choices in the Paragon, but no go. And this secret sewing? It is the baby quilt I alluded to before. The pieces are cut, the pieces are pieced. I am ready to baste and quilt this. I really, really want to show even a snapshot. The mum and dad of this soon to be here baby, do from time to time read my blog so I will hold back. It is killing me. It is not often I have a completed flimsy to show you!
I have finished the little baby cardigan I was knitting and knitted a hat as well. Just the buttons to sew on. Well, that makes a finish doesn't it? Photos and details to follow over the weekend. For now I feel a pair of socks coming on. Maybe a pair to fit me this time?
