Design Wall Monday


I finished Golden Harvest. She is now a complete top. I just can't bring myself to change her name though. As I was putting the leftover fabric away, I stumbled upon 2 bundles of triangles that I had bought at the Stash Builder's Sale back in April. On one bundle the tag said 40 Kaffee Fassett fabrics 75 cents. I wish the tag was with the other one but it wasn't. I got out some Kona Snow and cut more triangles and soon I'll have a baby quilt for the newest grandbaby.


Not much time was spent sewing though, I decided it must be a good time to get super sick instead. As soon as I started to feel human again, but unable to get up and do much, I started working on my shawl. The one I'm making with the yarn from the dreaded sweater. Simple, straight knit. I'm working my way up to a fancy one but I think it will be a while.

So now I am going to grab my quilt and park in the recliner and maybe go back to sleep for a while. It's been all sleep all the time or no sleep at all, lots of movies have been on and some have been watched. It's all good though, medicine is a wonderful thing. I'll be fine in a day or two.

Rest, medicine, and movies - the perfect combination for getting better.

Sorry you're feeling sickly still. Naps are very good! My design wall isn't too thrilling today either. Even Judy is late putting her post up.

First, take care of yourself. Second, those triangles look like the beginning of a happy quilt, perfect for a little one.

Hope you get better, soon. But you are doing the right thing = resting. I love your little baby quilt.

Hope you're feeling back to your old self soon! Your knitting is lovely - a perfect project while you recover. That baby quilt is going to be adorable when finished!

Do you have more Kaffee Fassett fabrics planed for a border? I'm sure with the bright colors it will be a big success for the newest member of your family. Get well quickly. Sandi

Glad you are feeling human again. Summer colds are the worst :(

Love the triangles, but then again I am in a triangle mode right now.
Get better soon...liz

Cathy said...

Oh no, so sad to hear you've been sick. It is so awful to have so much that you want to do, and feel too crappy to do any of it, even the fun stuff. Take care of yourself, and get lots and lots of rest.

You've got some great Kaffe fabrics there, and they will make a cute baby quilt. I hope you feel better soon. And, I love the yarn you've used in your shawl. That straight knitting will be easy work when you feel like doing something. Take care.

I love the yarn you are using for the shawl. When you use it you will be glad it is not that sweater! Take care of yourself and get back to 100% soon.

Love the triangles and congratulations on winning the Essentials Thread!

Hope you are feeling better soon. Is that Homespun yarn? I knitted a sweater with that, too. Mine is big enough that I am thinking of putting a quilted lining in it to make it a coat. Love the triangles quilt. Very cheerful!

Michelle said...

That's beautiful -- I love the different look you get from setting the triangles on point.

Those fabrics look perfect with the kona snow. What a bargain.
