It's been a while

Not a whole lot of sewing going on right now.  I have started a class on sock knitting and am really enjoying it.  I have come to the conclusion however that I can just about make a quilt in the time it takes me to make a sock.  and them when I have one made I have to make another one to make the first one worthwhile.  I am not sure I will be a sock knitter.  But at least when I am finished I will know that I could be if I wanted to be.  I have scratched that itch and can move forward.

This is a picture of the quilt I have been working on.  The pattern if from a tutorial by Jenny Doan from The Missouri Quilt Company.  She does such lovely tutorials and I just love their website.  A friend and I went to see the stores one day and it was really nice to see so much fabric in one place.  It is a really small town and they have like 5 stores.  I wish I had more contrast in the background squares in my quilt but have decided it is worth finishing anyway.  It does look better in person than in the pictures.  I an still trying to decide on the borders.
