Tuesday, April 3, 2012It's official, folks. Yours truly has finally broken out of the "Highly Commended" ghetto with a SECOND PLACE ribbon at the Easter Show for my Rhiannon socks! It feels... anticlimactic. And what's up with that display? I blocked those socks to perfection, and there they stand (!) all lumpy and wrinkled and weird-looking. I guess maybe they were trying to show off the front cable? I'm told that overall the displays are a much higher quality this year, but that my socks were one of the few sour notes. Sadly, Bokaclava and Sam Sawnoff didn't win any prizes, but I didn't really expect them to. (I had hoped that Bokaclava would be displayed on a dummy head! Alas, not..)
I'm working the Knitters Guild stall at the show this Saturday afternoon, so feel free to pop in and say hello!

I sewed myself a new shirt today! #crafty

Edited to add: This is the Colette Sorbetto, a free PDF pattern. I modified it by leaving off the front pleat and adding some sleeves. The fabric is a Liberty Tana Lawn I bought last year. I'm still learning, so simple tops like this give me plenty of practice. I think this one will get some wear!
Quilting took a back seat for a few weeks as I frantically finished all my Easter Show projects. Finally today I got a chance to put together the March MetaQuilter blocks. Amelia was the designer this month, and her quilt is the Earn Your Stripes quilt from Block Party: The Modern Quilting Bee. These were fairly free form, and I had fun playing with the beautiful fabrics she sent. I'll be posting these off tomorrow...
Sunday breakfast: Skillet-Baked Eggs w/ Spinach, Yogurt, & Spiced Butter. YUM.
