Bow tie Lap quilt at last!

Sounds as if I got tired of it, but that's not really the case.  When I decided to add the extra border, I got anxious to get it done.  You know how it is.  You think you've counted the right number, but alas not so and you have to make more.  In this case I had too many and had to rip a few off before adding the last border.  But anyway, It's done.  I'm still on my "do not make another big quilt" for a while, so lap quilts are my friend.  Actually, I get to go on to another project sooner.  Kinda neat.

Other things going on in Sewing Room

I have finally, maybe, given up posting to my blog on my I pad.  So, I'm having to get out the ball and chain computer.  I am totally spoiled to the connivance of the I pad.  Probably need a new one.  Anyway, this is my third post today, trying to catch up with progress.  Have been making progress and enjoying it so much.

Great retreat

One of my favorite retreats is Lake view in Palestine,TX.  Good friends and lots of sewing.  Includes a days visit to Common Threads Quilt Shop and The Dove,s Nest for lunch. Really good day. This retreat I got quite a bit done

.  I finished Alex' s quilt top first thing. Then I put together Cassie's quilt top.   This was a lot to get done. Then I began stitching a kit I bought of pyramids.  Had a really great time.

Crochet time

Finally got bite by the crochet bug.  First I started with Tunisian crochet and a wash cloth with three different stitches. Now I'm working on caps for cancer patients. The rest of the Friday knitting group have been making lots of caps already.   I am late to get started, but will try to help too. When I went to Dallas to see D.D and D G D and was working on a cap,
