Tiny Tuesday

This week I decided to hand piece this block, called Sorrows Of War. It would have taken me under five minutes in the sewing room but I wanted to be in the living room after the kids were in bed so I hand pieced it. There is something so relaxing about putting a needle and thread through some fabric. Sophie is waiting patiently to get brushed this morning so she is the model.

I also needed some new dish cloths last week and went searching for the correct yarn in the house. I found a little yellow, some green and white and a little more of the rainbow yarn. I now have about 8 inches of the rainbow yarn left and a new dish cloth to use in the kitchen. I don't think the dishes will mind!

Saturday I used my 40% off at Joanns Fabrics and got a 4 ounce of blue to make more. Not bad for $1.79. Now it is time to brush Sophie before taking the kids to school. Ahh. Blissful peace and quiet for 2.5 hours this morning. I can't wait.

The colors in that Sorrows of War block look like what I have in mind for T#1's log cabin quilt! ;-)

I've got #2 and #3 here this afternoon ... they're both down for naps (they don't normally take naps, but they both had really difficult mornings, so mama said a nap [or rest] was in order for the afternoon). That means some quiet time to work on some hexies ... maybe if I keep the volume low, I can also watch a little Olympics while I'm stitching. Hope you got in a lot of work during your 2.5 hour "quiet time". ;-)

I love using knit dishcloths. A couple of years ago I made a dozen up in all different patterns.

2.5 hours of calm sounds like bliss. I hope you enjoyed every minute!

I hope you enjoyed your quiet time this morning. Did you head to the quilting room for some quilting time?

I spy some yarn projects!!! :)
And the super bright rainbow cloth -- LOVE IT! I agree; I don't think the dishes will mind :)

I can well imagine that the kittykats LOVE when you decide to work on crochet/knit projects :)
