I have been on an apron making kick. I will soon be meeting up with girlfriends for our annual get together and I thought, "...what a perfect gift!" Last year I knitted them scarves. I don't remember what happened the year before but I am sure it was fun.

I have made progress on my wall hanging. Frankly my dear, I suck at free motion quilting and it just isn't enough fun to spend the time and effort to get better. Some people love it. Me? Eh! I will persevere and finish it up and maybe I'll hang it on a wall.


I continue to stay true to my UFO's despite having found (and purchased) some reallyreallyreally lovely patterns recently. My every way wrap continues to grow though I do need to either frog or attempt to correct two small mistakes a couple of inches back.

Last night I tried on the silky cardi that I had decided just wasn't going to work out. Tight under the arms and shapeless. A critical viewing showed that yeah, the underarms were a bit snug but not as bad as I had thought and if I frogged the neckband and reknit with fewer stitches (tightening it up) it would actually be a pretty cute cardi. Hmmm. Perhaps my knitting mojo is coming back.

A couple of blog posts back I mentioned that I had been working on a stealth gift for my dear hubby. All is revealed! I finally cut the mats and framed two posters that we had purchased while doing the dam tour at Lake Powell. I am a bit embarrassed to admit that it has taken me more than *several* years to finally break out my mat cutter and get it done. But! It is done, they are hung in our living room and they are pleasing.

The garden continues with enough tomatoes for sauce, lots of winter squash for baking and freezing, and today the making of pesto (yum!). Have a safe holiday weekend.

The aprons are just lovely! So bright and perky. I bet they'll even look good when splattered with spaghetti sauce!
