Progress and Finishing: It's All a Process

Progress: My husband's Azure socks are coming along nicely. Almost to the heel of the socks. Did I tell you that I love the Claudia's Hand painted - 100% Merino. Lovely colors and even better feel.


Finishing: This is my latest quilt for my MIL for her birthday. You would think that drawing lines, sewing along lines, and cutting would be super fast and you would be right if you stuck with it and didn't go do other projects in the mean time. I am pleased with the full quilt version of my smaller bags. It screams 'SPRING' and that is exactly the effect I was going for. Let's hope she likes it. The picture gives the illusion that it is huge, but it is more of a small wrap quilt. I just don't have the space to do something larger. Maybe someday I will have a craft room....
