I finished 4 more blocks this week for my Wagon Wheel quilt! I am up to 6 blocks! Just 19 more to make enough blocks to make this quilt big enough for my bed!

After becoming smitten with this quilt I decided to cut out all my pieces I needed to make all my blocks.

Now I am ready to sew!

At night, in front of the TV, I have been mostly knitting. I finished another pair of socks this week.

These Hedgerow Socks are a pattern I have been wanting to knit for quite a while. They fit great but I'll have to wait for several months before it is cold enough to actually wear them!

One great feature that I love in this pattern is that the pattern goes straight down to the bottom of the heel!

I'll have to get another pair of socks started this week so I can use up a bit more of my stash!

But for today I am hoping to get a couple of more blocks done for my quilt!

Happy Stitching!

I've Been Uninspired

I have been completely uninspired with ALL my projects lately. I have been just going through the motions of working on these projects without my usual passion. My thoughts on quilting are that if I am not enjoying it anymore then it is time for it to be put aside for a while. Sometimes those projects never get finished but sometimes I find I am wanting to work on them again at a later date. I figured it was time for a fresh start. I packed up everything I have been working on and everything in my want to do pile and put it away where I can't see it. I know it's there and maybe one day I will want to play with it again but not for a while.

So I started something completely new! I cut out my test block yesterday and ta-da!

It all went together without a problem so I made a second block today and starting cutting a third block out.

I am loving this scrappy quilt!

The pattern is called Wagon Wheels and is from Quiltmania issue #78.

I am so happy to have my quilting mojo back!

Happy Stitching!
