    I am trying to get the angora rabbit lining finished on these mittens before the snow flies.

    Looks great and oh so soft. We had snow yesterday but back to 70s today. I've been spinning for a SAL with a Fall theme. Also need to get back to my looms.

    I have some quilt tops to finish. Went to Joann fabrics to buy backings. Boy the costs have gone way up. Even with the Columbus sale. I wound up getting snuggle flannels for some of the kid baby quilts. Real good sale. $1.69 yard.

    Do any of you offer machine quilting? If so what is the going rate?

    I'm working on quilts for all of my grandkids, finishing a crocheted afghan for my sister, and crocheting a monkey for my little grandson's birthday. :)

    Someday it is my working toward goal to get Grace frame to make my hand stitched quilts easier to work with. Now I use qulit hoops on frame. while this concept works, I like the concept of roll of battling,back grown fabric and top all on one wold be easier to control. Might also Strawberry tug proof too.
    got to have goal in live for.

    Fiberwise, I am "knitting" spiral scarves for the homeless for Christmas. I figure homeless women need a lift with something pretty that is also warm.
    When Hancocks closed down last spring they put the skeins to make these down to 25 cents each the last day. I bought three dozen. They all have a bit of metallic in them that makes them look glittery.
    I'll be making fleece neck gaiters for the men and those women who aren't "girly".

    I made some sample blocks for my quilt commission, for her to see some real blocks/color etc. It isn't that fun to talk shop with someone who doesn't know the first thing about it... but... I did get some ideas, and then-- Wow the perfect one jumped out! It was on Craftsy, ON SALE!! Win win!!!!!!!

    My "fall" project (for the most part) is to wash and block/dry all the lap blankets, shawls and scarfs I've knitted this past year. I want them all done and looking as professional as possible before I take them down to the nursing homes and/or give some to the transportation vans (3 vans that carry elderly to medical appointments for free). Know I can wash them all on "warm" with light tumble; but plan to lay them out on towels to dry. This latter will take awhile due to the lack of "indoor" space for it.

    May put some of these into the dryer set on a very soft/low setting never used before. Not sure as I don't want to ruin these items. (I'm new to knitting yet these have turned out pretty good.)

    Repairing a hand stitched quilt from a bout 1840's.
    If can't completely repair into full size quilt.
    I got my orders to rework into two baby size quilts.
    For Gus's ninth and tenth great grand children.
    This is the quilt Gus's great grandmother made for her when she was born.
    I served with her in the Army.
    These quilts are to be sent to Texas in December.

    Sounds so interesting!!! Do you have an idea yet which way you're leaning? Whole or split?

    Sorry to say Split.
    Just too much damage.
    Might be able to get two small doll quilts out of the rest of it pieced back together.

    Tentatively this is the design for my 3 month old granddaughter's quilt for Christmas.
    :confused::confused:In between Pineapple blocks will be solid blocks.
    Leaning toward light lavender, or medium blue, just something to rest your eyes.
    All scrappy blocks.
    Now bear with me first time taking pictures with laptop.:confused::confused:
