March 15 th .. a few scrap quilt tops

I’m doing a short update on a few scrap tops that I put together . I want to get a few more done ,that way when hubby goes out of town here soon, I’m going to use the dining room table to knot the tops. When hubby leaves ,Leona and I just eat whenever,as the other children, ages 22 and 24 ,at home often have their own plans.


I was surprised at how the different creams and whites came together, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like using so many different shades of cream and white. Had to use a few other light colors to finish out the light out around the dark. 


Another log cabin that I messed up on in the far left zig zag. Lesson here .. never wait to sew a layout several weeks after laying out your pattern cause you forget just exactly what the plans were.

Working on a stack of these blocks now

Oh yes,I found the neatest way to quickly learn knitting online.


I must say that this tickled my funny boneπŸ˜‚

Break time over,back to sewing. Deb

    That is one thing I have never tried is knitting, my Grammy taught me to crochet ,so I never felt a real need to knit . I can imagine your daughters knitted socks are delightful in color. Could of used a pair of them when we were in the cold north.πŸ˜„

      Oh it did me too! The log cabin is busy enough that the mistake isn’t real noticeable that’s why I didn’t bother to fix it.

      Thank you! Lol .. I wished I would even write a note. I’m good at putting everything in a bag then sometime later coming across the bags and have to figure out what I was planning on doing with them.

    Thank you for this post – I laughed so hard at the sock – I’m never going to be a knitter. LOL The log cabin looks great. It’s only a little lighter in that spot and the design still shows.
