sometimes I forget to blog.

Well, it would seem that I forget to blog almost all of the time lately. Sorry for that. I love this space and sharing with you all, but I guess these little people are keeping me so busy that this is taking a backseat for now. Thanks for still popping in to see what I've been up to.


So what have I been up to? I've been squeezing in sewing when it feels right. Besides working on a quilt for Lucia's new big-girl bed, which I'll share soon, I finished this Summersville Strings quilt top. Wow, string quilts are a ton of work, and frankly this one burnt me out for awhile, but I love all the juicy, summer-y colors in this one and I promise to baste and quilt soon so I can share the whole thing! 


I also had to drag this one out of hibernation. This is my Ode to Denyse Schmidt color wheel spiderweb. I started this one over two years ago, but being a king size it just gets a little daunting and gets pushed aside again. And yes, I have no idea what I was thinking when I decided to go for a king. It's not likely my husband is going to let me use this for our bed quilt ;)

And while the sewing is a bit slow-going, I've still been knitting like crazy. I finished my Urban last month,


More details on my Ravelry page, here.

And yesterday I just finished blocking my new and most favorite knit yet, Raiun. It's the perfect basic little cardi in a lovely neutral color. It seemed to take forever, but well worth it I think.


I hope you all are enjoying your summer! I'll see you soon(ish), hopefully with my completed Scrap Hoover to show off!

  3. Love everything that you've made!! I admire your patience and perseverance in knitting; I have 2 sweaters (for me!) on the needles, and they don't seem to progress at all :)

  4. oh I love that last cardigan! I need to learn to knit like that. Quilting doesn't intimidate me, but knitting a garment does! lol

  6. Like Waverlee, I too am looking forward to seeing the Summerville quilt. I purchased the fabrics approx 4 months ago and have been waiting for the right pattern to come along - maybe it's yours. Your knitting always amazes and inspires me. I hope with being so busy with yur girls that it means you are having too much fun to stop and blog. Little ones are so wonderful and unfortunetly, they are only little for a short time. Enjoy.

  7. Such lovely things! I adore the Summersville string quilt, and the rainbow spiderwebs, too! Both knits are fabulous! I need to knit myself a good neutral basic sweater soon!
