Greetings my dear bloggers! Hope you are enjoying these last weeks of summer. Can't believe Labor Day is next week.
I was not able to get much sewing done but I did manage to make two cute washcloths for my grandkids in Virginia! So I'm calling them my August minis!
One turned out way too large and I didn't care for the yarn. The second one was getting much too big so I finished it and folded it over and closed the edges up!
This wound up looking Christmassy, which wasn't my plan. My grandson loves red so that was what I saw when it was all wound up!
This second one is fun.
Both patterns are on Ravelry. I am going to use the leftover yarn and whip up a couple of others before I leave Virginia. My grandkids love playing with the washcloths I've knitted over the years. I'm always the one giving baths to all the kids so knitting them washcloths is entirely appropriate!
Before I came to Virginia last week, I managed to stop by a very small cute quilt show and thoroughly enjoyed it. Here were my favorites. Some of the quilting was really well done; not in the sense that it was over-the-top at all!
I thought the piecing on this was really interesting. This was one block from a quilt with 9 blocks. I was very impressed with the quilting.
This modern little quilt was awesome and I took a close-up to show the quilting.
I think a closer look reveals that she changed her pattern for each part of the circles.
I also liked this version of a string quilt. Very random but effective.
On another note, I love to read and just finished a book that I was sorry was over. Know what I mean? It's called The Rose Code by Kate Quinn. Highly recommend it.
I'm flying back to Central Oregon next week where I'm hoping to get lots of kayaking done before the cool weather and fall sets in!
Have a great week!
