Some Leisurely Progress

Things are still plugging away here at Chez Crafty. I've sewn all the little diamondy strips into even diamondier diamonds. I don't always like the patchwork look in quilts, but this really appeals to me. Maybe it's the colours... maybe it's how awesome (most of) my matched points turned out... Even a minor mismeasurement setback today didn't put me off for long. I've started sewing some sashing strips to the diamond blocks, and then I get to actually start to plan the layout of the blocks with each other. I have to say, I've been working on it for an hour or two a day for a week or so, and I'm glad I didn't try to piece it all in a weekend, as the pattern says one theoretically can. I guess I'm doing things at a slower pace than a quilt pro might.

Speaking of slower paces, the entrelac blanket is totally in hibernation, and even the lace shawl has been set aside for some more baby knitting that I can't show you yet. Baby season never ends.

Happily, I am content with my slowish pace, despite the many things I have in my queue. So nice to work without deadlines, isn't it?

This quilt seems very bright and you! Though I've enjoyed my time off I can't wait to see you tomorrow.
