Because I Didn't Have Enough WIPs Already...

I started another one of these:

I started it on Mother's Day because I needed something to do during the car ride to my mom's house. I'm also in a knit-a-long on Ravelry to make the Lace Ribbon Scarf. I've got 4 inches of it completed. I'd be further along, but its knitted on size 3 needles. OY! I knitted for something like 3 hours and only have 4 inches of work to show for it. Its gorgeous, though. I'm using Koigu KPPPM yarn....yummy!

I'm also working on:
1) finishing up the hand sewing on Luke's quilt (on the binding).
2) a hexagon quilt that I can already see will be very hard to give away (i love it!).
3) a charm pack quilt
4) Amanda Jean's block-a-day quilt along
5) AJ Quilts' panda quilt along.

I've got a lot going on. So far it looks like the panda quilt will have to wait. It will be for my SIL and she isn't due until December, so I've got time. The hexagon quilt is for one of my son's preschool teachers who recently found out she has cancer. She's on her second round of chemo and I felt that maybe a bright, cheery quilt would be comforting in some small way. I hope, anyway.

So, I'm off to finish scrubbing the oven. Weeee! fun! I love to clean! NOT! But, it has to be done, so why bee-atch about it? Once its done I can quilt and not have a dirty oven nagging me. Its all good!

I like to work on long car rides too. Only I instead of knitting, I crochet. Other than my quilting projects I have at least four unfinished afghans on my to do list.

I need a crafty neighbor! I have a bunch of old sewing, knitting, crocheting, crafting books complete with patterns to accompany them and NO WAY TO USE them so I can't do any of those things! And I do have a brandy new sewing machine, too. And knitting needles. And a few crochet hooks somewhere. I've wanted to start, and never do. Blech, someday, right? I'm too busy writing my book now, anyway. You go though! Keep up the cool work! I love your pictures.
