I've been busy crafting away...using our time catching up on The Office to work on my granny squares, my knitting swatch and some embroidery.

The quilt is coming along. I just have 2 more strips to sew to each square and then it's ready to assemble.

And, I finished my second stitchette. My plan is to finish all 16 and include them in a quilt. Well, the quilt isn't going to make itself unless i start cranking these out, right? I believe this one is called "Ernie's Edification" and it's from the fall stitchettes.

The potholder/swatch is finished. I'm a little bummed that it didn't shrink as much as I wanted it to and that it shrunk from a square into a rectangle. Next time I'll know to add a lot of rows to the swatch to get it to come out more even.


and after

And now the swatch is bringing me a scent from my past...perm chemicals. Seriously, it smells so disgusting!

I'm off to finish those quilt sqaures and possible make a new purse from this pattern with this fabric that I picked up last weekend at the sewing expo...


  1. Ooh the bf and I were just watching The Office. Painfully hilarious stuff. I think your quilt will be lovely.
