Thank you to all who posted comments on my last post. I sent an email to all of you who had an email return address. I've got good news--the last few days I actually ironed the denim quilt and the backing and pin basted it together. And I even spent about an hour tying it. I figure that what with the tying and the binding, I might be done by New Year's. I'm making that my projected goal. Meanwhile, I have finished knitting and crocheting all of the children's sweaters that I planned to make for the holidays. And I have already given three of my grandchildren their sweaters. What luck--the sweaters fit them. I post photos of my knitting and crochet on my Flickr page, and there is a link it here on my blog page. I always have a man's hat on the knitting needles. The hats are a good portable project. I donate these hats to an organization that helps homeless folks. I ought to post the pattern for these hats, I guess. And here are some of the quilt blocks that I've been making. I squared up a few of them. They are 9 1/2 inches.

What joy, to have the sweaters fit! That's always a tricky bit.

Love Mark Twain's quote today :- )

You've accomplished so much already!
It must feel great to be so far along.

It must be that time of year! I'm in a mood for knitting, sewing, cooking and sometimes even cleaning.
It's the cocooning thing I think.
