I was tagged by one of the most clever and quick witted women I have ever met, my friend, Convoluted String for this!

“The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.”

Make up Quilt Along #1

These are the blocks from week 1 and 2 of Amandajean's first quilt along. I have chosen fabrics from the Moda Simplicity line. I think I am going to like this quilt.  It is hard to tell from the pictures but the background fabric is pale blue.

WIP's and FO

Knitting is happening around here. Mostly I have been knitting on secret knitting. The first of two pairs of socks. I am almost to the toe on the second spring fling sock and I have about an inch on the Spunky Eclectic Pumpkin sock. The little hat is one I knit out of some sock yarn. I love the fall colors.

Week 3

Week 3 and my setting block. I love doing this quilt.
