Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Moving right along

It's been a very busy week what with work and my mom in the hospital, but I did make a little progress. 

The infinity scarf was started ( remember I was only going to cast on my stitches) on Thursday evening and by Sunday, I had soaked it, blocked it and waited for it  to dry.

I love it.  It is theeeeee softest yarn and was so easy to make.  I have been wearing it all day.

I am still plugging away on my next Cherry Tree block and have made just a little progress on it. 

I even threw together another zig zag row of half square triangles that eventually will go into a baby quilt.

The next set of half square triangles are all laid out to make the next row.

I may be making some major  progress this weekend as I have to get myself ready for a mini retreat with my friends next weekend.  So as not to have to take half of my sewing room with me, I need to get my projects cut, pinned, planned and whatever needs to be done to make my load a little lighter.  So....hopefully (barring any unforeseen problems with my mom, health, weather or any black cloud that may be following me) I will be headed up to one of our favorite places to hole away and sew to our hearts content.  I should have plenty to show you  the week after next weekend. 

Happy stitching everyone.


  1. I love love love the scarf. Is it an easy pattern? (All I can do is easy)
    Have a lot of fun at the retreat ... sounds so good! Fall is a wonderful time of year to enjoy a retreat.

  2. That is a beautiful scarf, but I think you should have shown your model's gorgeous face!

    Loving those pink zigzags, too.

    Have fun at your retreat. Don't forget to sleep!
