Here we are, another Yarn Along and only 1 row knit this past week. I’ll admit it – I’m daunted by the February Lady. And I haven’t had the time (or brain power) to figure out those button holes. Hopefully this week.
So instead, I’ve been cutting pieces for a quilt for Bigger. He’s really psyched. He doesn’t remember having anything Mama made and now it’s his turn. The plan is for a super simple scrappy of blues and greens and I’m ready to try laying it out. Once it’s pieced I’ll put it on the back burner for a little bit and finish up the other quilt I’m working on. Because I would really like to be able to give it to my friends before their second anniversary (since it was supposed to be a wedding gift and all.) It’s a good plan anyway.
As for reading, I started Little Women since I’ve been reading so much about Alcott and it’s been so long since I read any of her actual writing. But then the WeatherMan and Littler brought me a book back from the library – Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini. At times it’s almost as if she’s trying to hard and it makes it a bit cumbersome. But I’m enjoying the story. I just hope I can finish it before it’s due back to the library.
