I was so creative, and didn’t do any homework. I felt so productive, though!
I finally finished the black and white quilt in the spare bedroom. I had completed the top and hand-tying last June (10 months ago!), but never got around to putting the binding on (something that, at the time, I didn’t know how to do, nor did I have the right equipment for my machine). When I finally got to it last week, the binding that I’d cut (and ironed and coiled up so perfectly) had faded so much on the exposed edge I had to throw it away and start again. I added some stripes to make it more visually appealing, and then finally put the binding on. Yay! (On Flickr you can see more detailed photos, and there’s a link to what it looked like before.)
Before Spring Break started, I finished knitting two hats (I think I mentioned this).
Since knitting had gone so well on the hats (and only slightly aggravated my tendinitis), I decided to start a new project. I’d originally bought this bamboo-blend yarn to make another spring hat, but thought better of it. picked out a bolero pattern (I had about four options and couldn’t decide), so I cast on the Ribbed Lace Bolero. By Sunday night, I was at 12″ (of 18.5), so I have hope that it might get finished this spring (though there is a time for every craft: embroidery on the bus, knitting while watching television, and sewing when I have energy and time to commit to it).
Did you think that was all I did? Nope, there’s more! I made a pair of pajama pants for (finished up last night), and started a dress for myself. Go to the Flickr page to see my dilemma about it, and then give me some feedback!
is on Spring Break this week, and I’m sure she’s loving it. is on permanent Spring Break, lucky her. And, I just got a call that is being induced tomorrow, so she’s done teaching for the rest of the school year.
