Miscellany

I'm so excited! Zoe over at Margin is creating one of her wonderful artworks inspired by Sydney. Needless to say I'll be first in line.

Christine has a great tutorial for a double glasses case for those of us having to switch glasses all the time. She also has giveaways regularly, so be sure to check out her blog.

A couple of weeks ago Jennifer sent me her half of Socksgiving. I now have a pair of socks I care too much about to wear. Thank you my dear friend for teaching me this skill that had been eluding (and frustrating) me for a long, long time.

Aren't they just splendid?

Lately I've been spending a little bit of time with Granny's Flower Garden. I'm shocked to see that my last post about this was in July!!! I have 13 blocks all done and attached. Only 35 more to go.

Pin It!

  1. I have four pair of glasses, one for every moment, one for my computerwork and one when I like to watch TV in bed and the one less used are my sunglasses.... Granny’s Flower garden is some outburst of Spring colours! Thanks for your birthday wishes on my blog!

  4. That pink socks are just gourgeus, you should try another color now. If you can make 1 pair, you can do two ;).
    That hexagons are so pretty! But a lot of work there, but it is going to be wonderfull at the end, for certain!

  5. I don't think I did so much teaching, more like cheerleading. Anyway, I'm glad you like them and they fit! I'm looking for more socks from you in the future.

  7. great socks!

    I can't believe how far you've come with the quilt. I don't think I've picked up mine since I started it last summer. Matter of fact, I don't even know where it is!! Anyway, yours looks great (of course).

  8. Look at that GFG!! Maybe I should stitch tonight instead of knitting...

  9. Oh, that flower garden is amazing! So pretty. I can't imagine doing all that stitching. It has taken me two weeks to stitch the binding on a lap quilt and I'm still not done.

  10. today during my (very cold) walk I was wondering how your pink socks were. I smiled when I read that you love them too much to wear...that is something that I would do, too.

    your GFG is looking oh-so-fabulous!
