What happened to February? Apologies for dropping off the face of the earth, but we've been trying to stay on California time for the last couple of weeks. DH has some on-line work with participants in California and in Europe, so he decided to remain on CA time for a little while. This means going to bed at 6PM and getting up at 2AM, local time...yikes! I'm being good wifey and keeping him company. Another 10 days or so of this, and we'll shift back to Australia time.
In addition, I've been a little sidetracked from quilting with a yarn interlude. Bought some yarn and a circular needle so I'd have a project for the plane, and it was fun to knit a bit...haven't done that for years. However, I ran out of yarn before the poncho I was making was finished. What else is new?! Bought more yarn in contrasting colors, and finished up yesterday , only to notice a few major flaws here and there where I'd been knitting in the low-light levels on the plane. Ripped the entire thing out, rolled the yarn in balls, and it now resides in a paper bag, until I feel motivated again. The good news is that the little fluffy scarf I made before the poncho turned out fine and will be cozy when winter comes. I'll post a pic one of these days.
So, back to finishing up the antique remake quilt. Large center section is completed, most of the remaining large blocks are done and just need to be put together. Still need to make the little half-blocks that make up the border. I need to pick up some batting (wadding, here?) and backing fabric (thinking of using plain muslin (calico, here?) to mirror the original, and then start putting this baby to bed.
I've been reading everyone's blogs and posting comments from time to time, but have been a bad blogger buddy lately. Not sure what's up with that, but I think I'm back on track now.
