I've been having an affair.
I don't think it's over.
I finally reintroduced myself to my lovely Bernina after a summer away (and month back home). She is slowly accepting my apologies.
Here's what I have been up to: a hat and two pairs of socks. The hat and first sock pattern are available for free online. I've also joined Ravelry, so maybe I'll see some of you there! I promise not to abandon my blog or the quilting content, though (see below).
I bought this fabulous Marimekko Fiesta one meter remnant yesterday with hopes that it would inspire me to get back to my quilting.
It seems to have worked. (That and the guilt trip my mom gave me on the phone today about having a whole room dedicated to my quilting!) This is what I worked on in that room this evening - the start of one of my two minis for the 6-12" swap for September. I can't claim this birch tree idea as my own - I remember seeing it on a pillow on someone else's blog. I'll have to dig up the link to give credit where credit is due. (Anyone know off hand?)
I've also been teaching. (I've got to support these habits somehow, you know.)
