I got 2 knitting pattern leaflets the other day courtesy of a quilting friend - Jean Greenhowe's Knitted Clowns and MacScarecrow Clan. Aren't they hilarious? I spent a lot of time looking at the details of each picture. I love all of them. Am I too old to knit myself toys?
I finished sewing together the top for my niece's quilt. There's not enough contrast between some of the fabrics so it's hard to see the block design. I made one boo boo - there's 2 bee blocks right beside each other. I'm not sure whether I sewed the blocks in the wrong order or I laid it out wrong. Tomorrow, I need to sew the backing fabric together and then I get to lay on the floor for a few hours basting the layers together. I don't know how far I'll get since my back is killing me tonite. I also need to decide on a quilting pattern so the basting isn't urgent.
