Received my Quaker HOE this week and love how Melissa used Easter colors for a little change.
I started sewing early this morning to finish my sister's quilt top (worked on it most of yesterday too) and also finished the four little blocks of April - $5 BOM @ Asheville Cotton Co.
Last week I finally finished all the Oriental BOM blocks from Asheville Cotton Company and found a really gorgeous black from Marti's Patchwork Cottage in Black Mountain for the backing. See what you think. I first put this on point,

I have finally finished knitting the Hibiscus Shell from Knitter's Magazine Summer 2010 issue that I started August 2010, but ran out of the color. Once I ordered it the weather has started turning cold here in Swannanoa. So picked it up a week ago to finish the last sleeve. Hope to sew it together this weekend.

I do love Gerber Daisys the most, so I found this old photo from 2005 of some that I planted while living in South Carolina. Also managed to finish Phil's yellow sweater (it took one year, on and off)today; knitting the sleeve for a summer sweater that I started last August (so I can wear it this year) and also finished my HOE Quaker ornament exchange piece. I was also able to sew the panels for my sister's blue/yellow quilt too.

Well I've been able to knit 2/3 of the green scarf/cowl, started and completed another dish cloth (free pattern from http://www.ravelry.com) with some scrap cotton that I have, finished the cross-stitching part of the HOE Christmas Ornament exchange, so now I need to finish it for mailing. Also cooked, cleaned, did the laundry, etc. that I normally do on the weekends. Oh and also have about 2/3 of my husband's yellow sweater sewn together and also worked on my sister's Quaker piece (cross-stitch).
