Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

Sandwich, anyone?

It took an incredible confluence of factors -- older three children playing at other houses, and the baby asleep for a long nap -- but I spent some restorative time on my knees today.

Not praying, although my knees are sore (as is my index finger) but basting. Sometimes I think it's having a fairly clear idea of the quilting pattern for this quilt that keeps me eager and focused on it (although still slow in execution). It's not going to be perfect, but I'm so looking forward to getting it in a hoop.

That also explains why Thing 1's first birthday quilt is still a basted bundle upstairs.

O goodness. You quilt, too? Or feel guilty about not quilting as you bask, coat-less, in the sunshine?

I made a quilt top once, then was too confused about the batting and the mitered corners and gave up its finishing. Looks like you got farther than I did. If you need a nudge to finish, it looks lovely!

It's going to be fantastic.

You are another blogger that I wonder how they do it. Where do you find the time?

Just beautiful. Your perfect hand-stitching will only make it more perfect.

Wow, it's beautiful! Geez, I didn't know you could quilt, too. You're so multi-talented. I'm a one-craft girl :)

Being a displaced Texan, I truely covet this quilt! What are you going to quilt in the middle? This makes me want to break out the 3 quilts I have in various stages of production/completion- its been a long time.
