Sometimes, moving forward is all there is. It can't all be about fame, fortune and glory. Sometimes, there's gotta be a workday or a nap day when there's no excitement. Otherwise, life would be exhausting.
I did a little work on a lot of things last week. I worked on the appliqué flower block, but all I got was the freezer paper templates cut out and ironed to the fabric and then traced around. I only got one piece of fabric actually cut out. I spent most of my time trying to move the sweater forward. It's been a case of do a little, take out a little. I finally figured out that I can take out more than one row at a time while loading it back on the needle. That's a real timesaver. It's not that I'm a bad knitter, but the instructions are very complicated and and there are a lot of individual patterns to keep up with as well as the overall weater pattern. I lose track, or think I'm doing the right thing and it takes a couple of rows to discover that I'm not. Anyway, the sleeves are attached and I'm decreasing for the neck and shoulders.
I also took a few hours on Saturday and Sunday to quilt the baby quilt. I still need to go back and fill in some largish spaces that I created as I went and tie the knots, but then it will be ready to bind and wash and give away. They're due the end of May and I'm going to finish just in time. I quilted it with the wind pattern. I've done that enough now. It's time to come up with something different. I love that pattern for all over quilting, but I don't want it to become my signature.
