What's on the design wall today

Taking a peek today: (as always, click to embiggen):
Making progress on the Mary's Own quilt. The quilt is made up of 18" blocks and will be set 4x4. There are actually two blocks that are mirror image of each other. I've finished 8 of block A and am working on the 8 block B's. Using your imagination, you can sort of see what it will look like :) The blue fabric pinned to the design wall is a possible border - I've pinned it up there to audition.

The Waving Lace socks are about 2/3 of the way done. The recipient was over last night and tried on the finished sock. They fit perfectly so it is all speed ahead on finishing these up hopefully this weekend.

My life is settling down into a less hectic routine. We had our small group over last night so yesterday was spent cleaning and cooking. I made a huge pot of beef stew (turned out yummy!) and strawberry pound cake for dessert. I even hung some pictures which have been sitting on the floor since the remodel was done 2 years ago. I keep reminding myself that small baby steps is best.

Today I had lunch with a former co-worker. Had fun and it was good to catch up on quilting projects and family.

Now the huge question today is .. what is worse to watch on TV... political coverage or Brittney Spears being loaded into an ambulance? *sigh* I think I'll watch DVDs.

Till later ~~ Dene
