Yes, schools is out and you won’t be subjected to a geometry class. I’m just laughing because I went outside a few minutes ago to photograph one knitting and one quilting project. Two vastly different projects have one thing in common. Take a look.
I guess I just like right angles. I absolutely didn’t plan this when I started taking photos. It’s just what I’m working on right now.
The quilt is called Getting Ziggy With It by Heather Peterson of Anka’s Treasures. This is the second project I’ve done from this book and it’s probably the easiest quilt I’ve ever made. It was really fun. The fabric is Neptune by Tula Pink for Moda. Here’s the full shot.
I didn’t like the border fabrics I had for the project, so I’m just going to quilt it as is and bind it.
The knitting project that it seems like I’ve been working on forever is Trevi. I love it and I should just stick to it and finish it. I’ve been picking it up between other things, so it’s not progressing very quickly. The yarn is Handmaiden Sea Silk and it’s heavenly. I purchased it at Knitty Noddy. I’m trying to stay away from there because there are way too many gorgeous yarns on her site.
I’ve really enjoyed this week without much going on. I started new knitting and quilting projects. It’s also nice to be able to sleep in when I’m stupid enough to stay up until 2:00 AM. We had a baseball game last night and we’re grilling with friends tonight. I could get used to this lazy summer stuff!
Have a great weekend. Oh, and Happy Father’s Day to the best dad that five kids could ever have!
