Design Wall Monday - 1/12/15

Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))

So I was sitting here -

Minding my own business -

When I realized that I missed posting my Design Wall last week -

But no real biggie -

The same stuff is still up there -

Just moved from one wall to the other - ;))

I played with my triangles some more -
And now they are all in little baggies -
By size -
Waiting to be sewn together - ;))

I finished another scarf -
And only used about half the ball of yarn -
So I started another one -
And tried to get a decent shot of the subtle striping action going on -
But I'm not sure if you can tell from the photos - ;))

Maybe this one will show you what I mean -
Pretty, huh? - ;))

And I did some more sorting and organizing -
These empty boxes might come in handy -
To pack up some stuff for the boys - ;))

AND I found my January Sudoku Quilt "kit" -

In one of my piles -

Maybe I can get that up on my design wall next week -

I DO have two more walls - ;))

BUT I seem to have lost my mojo for piecing -

I was "talking" to LindaL - here
And told her -
I spent a lot of time knitting the scarves and really enjoyed it. Then I spent some time playing with my scraps - and some triangles - and organizing - but don't really have any mojo to get back to piecing. I have a head full of ideas - and projects galore - but NO mojo. Maybe yours and mine are vacationing in Hawaii or someplace warm - ;))

Maybe we need to restart our little "race". This is the time of year when everyone is sponsoring or signing up for a "quilt-a-long" - so everyone is probably already "booked up" - but who cares? - we could get a head start on next Christmas - BOB says as she has no mojo to get off the computer and actually SEW something - haha - ;))
So maybe all of the Christmas stuff on my wall -

Can be this year's entries in our little -

Leisurely Turtle Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed -

or LTRTCWSA for short - ;))

A couple of years ago -

Linda - here - and I started our race - here -

Check it out -

No pressure - just sew something Christmasey -

Every chance we get -

And then we don't have to wait for Christmas -

To enjoy Christmas - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Love your yarn! I forget. Are you knitting or crocheting? Beautiful scarves.
And the only thing I can say about our race .... it will definitely be leisurely! lol

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Linda - the yarn IS pretty isn't it? - AND it's "Thick & Quick". I'm knitting the scarves - nothing fancy. I think that any "pattern" would get lost in the yarn fluff - so it's just knit every row - back and forth - no trying to figure out if it's a knit row or a purl row - so no stress - just KNIT - ;))

And as far as the "RACE" is concerned - it's SUPPOSED to be leisurely. I think we made the first word "LEISURELY" on purpose for stress-free - and included "TURTLE" to set the pace - and made sure that we allowed for "SQUIRRELS - so in other words - the name says it ALL - ;))

Love your design wall and your triangles. And you've knit two scarves. You seem pretty productive to me.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Jocelyn - but I think I started that scarf before Christmas as an "extra" - and the second is only half done - so I'm not really that fast. And the triangles have been "in progress" for a while, too. I am a S-L-O-W P-O-K-E quilter - and I like it that way - no stress. Right now the sorting/organizing and tax stuff is getting in my way - but hopefully I can work less and play more pretty soon - ;))
