Winding Ways

Remember all those pictures of the blocks in progress??

Well, despite all the distractions that attempted to derail this, I've pieced the top!  Now it's time to add it to the flimsy pile.... :)

And how are the distractions doing??

Here is the stitchery.  I'm almost done, just need to finish the border.  Then I need to decide what to do with it.  Any suggestions?

And the pile of knitted squares???

Well, it's slowly turning into a blanket.  I'm on the fifth row.  It'll take a while (it's made out of sock yarn)

Nearly Insane

I've also had this minor little distraction going on this last little while...

This is the Nearly Insane quilt...  I've got roughly 22 block left, but just couldn't resist a little preview....

March Finishes

I have a finish for the month.  (Though surprisingly (or not) not winding ways) 

This is Some Swell Swell.

This is made using the swell charm pack 'Swell'. 
It actually one of the quilts from my 2010 UFO list.  Yeah!!  One down and ten more to go.

Ornament Exchange

I was going to take down the ornaments (since it seems the world is now preparing for Easter) and realized that I hadn't actually posted about them. I found this ornament stand at Ikea and thought it'd be a great way to highlight the new ornaments each year.

You'll likely recognize the gingerbread man from the SSCS swap.

The other ornaments are from the annual ornament exchange. I've been exchanging ornaments with the same wonderful people scattered around the world since 1994. (Yup, we're now all blessed with wonderful, unique, handmade decorations for our trees)

I really love looking at them. Hmmm. How bad do you think it'd be to keep them up all year?
