Quilting/Applique is definitely not as relaxing as knitting!!! / Torn between two loves!!!

I am starting to feel like Susan with posting updates on her afgan (did I spell this right?) But anyway, this is my quilt so far, not much done and definitely not relaxing yet!

I dont know if you can see my boo boo on the oak leaf piece. Two almost down, two more panels to go! I wish I excelled in sewing machine 101!

Lost in Ashe County / I Sing the Colors of the Rainbow / Buying Yarn without a Project in Mind

Gee, I hope you guys get the reference that the I sing the color of the rainbow, is an Ella Jenkins song, not a gay pride song! Although, while I was in Ashe County, i did run into a lesbian couple. West Jefferson is definitely a happening town! or at least the store was a happening place. I think I will have to quit my job because it is interfering with my creative side!

Ok so here is what I bought as a cheater in Ashe:

The first two colors were in Melanie's bedroom at our Charlotte house, then of course a purple, and the last one just went well with all of them. I am ssooooo not a pink person. So now is the question: What will i do with all this yarn? I was thinking of using most of it for another yoga bag (we all know my first yoga bag is still unfinished), but I was thinking of making one for Melanie with those colors she likes or liked once upon a time. so I am up for ideas!

A sighting of our new/old prez and Jane's new project

I love Jane's log cabin squares....this is from the Mason Dixon knitting book! She is using all my favorite colors.

This is our 5th this is our President, who resigned and just got re-elected to the Presidentship. What the heck is she hiding???

Wait, my midget acorn/mushrooms/dwarf stuff is missing! Could our President be following Bill Clinton's lead?

Oh yeah, and the bag in the picture under this one, Suzanne's bag.....looks even more beautiful in person!

Grandpa's paintings

These paintings are his!

This just didn't come out right! Can you guess what it was supposed to be?

Ok so first of all, the first photo is sideways and I cant figure out how to fix that. So look sideways and guess!

So maybe you have guessed, it was supposed to be the wine sack from Knit One, Felt Too, only I used scrap yarns (to be thrifty and use it all up!) but one of my scrap yarns was doubled and very very thick that it put a poochy part to the sack. I DID it! I cut up my mistake and decided to use it as a.....

Pencil holder and what a fine one it makes!!! I love my pencil holder, but I have lots of knitted, felted stuff left. What should I do with it?

Acorns? Mushrooms? What the heck are they?

I tried making these acorns, but they dont look like acorns! HELP, babes!

Everyone knows it's windy / A tree fell in Wilkes!

One of the trees in my yard fell today! Good thing it didn't fall on my house!!

Thanks so much, Monica and Eric, mostly I love it all!
