Knitting needles

So I'm only a beginning knitter but he even helps keep me in the proper tools for this hobby, see that wallet in his hand as I decided not to bring my purse then remembered I needed these double pointed needles.  Almost 40 years with this man and it only gets better and better.
The sunshine is brilliant today and though I still have considerable neck pain and headaches and  unable to do any quilting I'll make the best of it and enjoy what the outdoors offer.

Scrappy Sister's Choice Quilt

This is what I'm doing for my sister, a scrappy Sister's Choice quilt so have been sorting out my blues and neutrals but after the last quilt I just gifted on Wednesday the blue stash is really depleted.  May have to do a little LQS venture out this weekend.
My trial block came out really nice but I won't use the neutrals again for the nine patch but the size measured out bang on so looking forward to some easier piecing.
I love how the shadows played on the block when taking this picture but it really needs color in the center.

After my massage yesterday I was "told" only 2 hrs of quilting allowed that day, what!!!  Have a sweet weekend everyone and  hopefully you aren't  restricted in your quilty endeavors.

She's a Marvel and Birthday Fun

One of my BFF produces quilty projects like nobody's business and here she is with her Farmer's Wife Quilt.  Yesterday at our quilt group we sandwiched Diane's two quilts and this is a quick picture of the paper pieced marvel.
For lunch we decided to celebrate Maggie's Birthday with a great Vietnamese lunch in downtown Victoria which was very delish!  If you like that type of food give Saigon Harbor a try you'll not be disappointed.  And because we were downtown why not hit one of our local quilt shops right.
Here we all are after a yummy lunch, some quilty purchases and after we grabbed a Discovery iced coffee we were more than fortified to head back to sandwich a quilt for the birthday girl.  Can 't wait for our next adventure ladies, you fill my heart and my quilty soul, bless you all!
