This mitten knitted up so quick! I just started it Wednesday night… It is fun learning the new stitches again (increases, decreases, etc) and seeing something useful emerge from your needles…I was so darn excited to make that thumb, LOL! I plan on working on that and also getting my 4 inch strips for the edge of my DJ quilt cut out…

I will be starting a Crazy Quilt class next week and somehow feel that a trip to get some beads, some fabric and maybe some more wool might be formulating in my mind for today. I hate city center driving in Europe, I am no good a parking and parallel parking in Ireland is on the opposite side of the road that I learned on, to add to the complications, LOL! But I will brave the wilds of Limerick my local “big city” here in the name of my crafting!! I think. Aine has a cold, and while she is fine, I might just be all mommerly and hang around playing puzzles with her or something. She won’t be able to go to her usual Saturday swim class, as her cough is pretty chesty…

I took my DJ quilt up to our bed yesterday to see how it will fit…pretty well, but I have to figure out how to make it look nice on our IKEA Leksvik sleigh type bed…the bottom corners will be a challenge.
Here is a still life I put together on top of our wardrobe. Two antique quilts and lots of baskets, one on the left was my grandma’s, middle one was thrifted, and last one I bought in a French market. I love baskets…they are everywhere in my house, and I can even make my own willow ones, took a few classes, LOL! I liked the girl head statue and bought that a local garden centre. Posted by Picasa
