Empty house + kid at school = lots of time to craft

Quilt WIP
I’m trying to get as much as I can before Cale’s last day of school (tomorrow) and before I have to ship more stuff out (late next week.) Wow, time has flown. It’s already Thanksgiving. We already celebrated a few weeks and are hoping to go to Rome instead. It’s our last chance.
Anyways, on to the quilt. This will be for my elbow-y, kick-y little girl. What started out as simple turned more complicated as more and more concepts came together that I wanted to incorporate. There is just too much great vintage embroidery out there to not add any. And then I saw Amy’s Bend the Rules Sewing Lap Blanket. Okay, so I don’t own this book (yet) so its really more inspired by the different variations I’ve seen of it. Today I finished all the major row piecing. I still need to finish the other 5 embroidered squares and piece it all together. It’s even more lovely than I imagined it to be, so far.

Granny squares
At nights I work on granny squares. I have no grand illusions that I could make a blanket, but I do want a scarf. And I’m hoping to make a hat after that (one color, different design.)

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
