Why haven't I been doing much quilting lately, you ask? Well, I'm sorta trying my hand at crocheting. Some women I work with crochet on Thursday's and asked if I'd be interested. It sounded like a good idea. I need something to do while I'm waiting to pick up the kids from practice/games/school/etc.
(I have my iPhone which would be sufficient. But I like the idea of doing something PRODUCTIVE with my time.)
So here's the start of my first project.
I'm pretty terrible. And I refused the crochet ladies' suggestion of using thicker, solid yarn. I tried plan gray and it was so BORING. So I bought this skein thinking I'd make a scarf. If you crochet you're laughing at me right now because you know that one small skein isn't enough for a scarf. And the fact that I chose a hairy wool instead of thicker cotton. Yet I'm still plugging away. Because the love the colors. They're so pret-ty! Whether I can make something useful is questionable. Time will tell.

Things are progressing nicely with the Redwing Red baby quilt. My mother-in-law has put the top together, added borders, and passed it on to me to layer and quilt it. I'll be starting that project this week and will post photos soon. In the meantime, I've been planning my next baby quilt. This one is for my good friend and extremely talented friend, Julie. She just found out her little bambino is a boy and she's decided to do the nursery in blues and browns. She's thinking elephants for a theme and I found this fabulous fabric online. It's our inspiration - both for the quilt I'm creating and the decor she's choosing for the nursery.

Since I'll never see it again, I made sure to get proper pictures. I'm getting better about documenting my work.
