Works in Progress

This post is just to prove that I haven't been sitting around eating bon bons while not blogging, ahem.

Month 2 of Sock Club at Yarn Stash in Burien. I couldn't actually go to the meeting this month because it was on Nick's birthday, but Trisha and I got together and started our socks. They knit up pretty quickly though I still probably won't ever make the second one. I'm the poster child for second sock syndrome.

I pulled some fabric off the dusty old shelf and put this quilt top together. This is one I've had bagged & planned for about 3 years - no foolin'.

You see how I'm trying to make something other than coupon organizers? I got the adorable bumble bee fabric you see here and didn't know what to do with it. I think it'll make a very sweet little zipper pouch. Maybe a long skinny one? More stash busting too. My 30's prints were meant for sewing!

Last but not least, more Hope Valley added to my collection. If you sell fabric crafts, you know that Denyse Schmidt not only designs great fabric (quilts, patterns, etc., etc.), but she sells too (I hope I don't sound shallow saying that, but it's true. A girl's gotta run a business)! You can't go wrong with these fabrics. I admit, I get a lot more pleasure from putting them together than I do sewing them together.

So now you know, I may be quiet, but I'm still working away.

I love the design for those socks and the color!

I would never make the second sock, either. That's why I don't even start with the first one. :)

I don't know how to make socks, and yet I still have a growing collection of single socks. Maybe they are meant to be worn in odd pairs... ;)

Trisha said...

The Scrappy Tree has a good point, Ginny, you should wear mismatched socks. Lou wore mismatched socks to sock club and we all got a kick out of it.

Fun to see all of your projects!

Oooh, I love that Hope Valley fabric in the last picture. Can't wait to see what you come up with for that.

And mismatched socks sounds good to me :)

I've missed seeing your sewn creations. Love your monkeys and other knitted items but your sewing is sublime. More please!
