Whoops I can't believe it is nearly a month since I last posted. I guess working 4 days a week really makes time fly. It is still exhausting and in fact I have been off sick for the last week and a half which of course I am blaming on the 4 day week :). I have shingles and for those of you who haven't had it before it hurts!!! I am due back to work on Monday (really have to go back as I don't have any more sick leave left) but I am still incredibly tired and in a fair amount of pain.
But all that aside I have been busy crafting.
I have finished 2 quilt tops
for a baby due August 2011
for my nephew J bday in November (the applique was needed as Jot took to the quilt top with a pair of scissors)
Finished off J&T Wedding Quilt (still need to put on the label)
MMQG Oh Beehave blocks for Rachel
Burp cloths for numerous new babies.
And lastly I have knitted two hats for Jot. I am not going to show a picture of the first as it is about two inches too short and it really badly made (but in my defence I was knitting while feeling my worst)
I am in the middle of my last 5 Fandango blocks and although I would like to get the top finished this month realistically I won't really get the chance in the next week (I will try though).
I was meant to make my big sis bday and xmas gifts this month too but the materials needed haven't arrived from the US yet. So I have been focusing on quilt tops this month and will focus on birthdays and christmas for both my big sis and my niece (for whom I think I have everything) in April.
I also designed my MIL quilt for her Christmas present as they will be with us at Christmas and I would love to see her face when she opens it and have also been working on a design for a quilt for my parents ruby wedding anniversary (which is in two days - I was convinced it was next year so have talked my parents into waiting for their present :) ) Not sure if I am going to go with something I design myself or some sort of an Irish chain. Lots to think about.
For now though I am think I might curl up in front of the TV and attempt to make Jot some mittens to match the hat. This could be amusing :)
Have a good weekend
