Loose Threads: A finish!!!!

A finish!!!!

Do any of you remember back when we only had 3 or maybe 4 TV channels? On Sunday evenings we would gather around the set and watch The Ed Sullivan Show. I remember this one guy that would come on stage with a bunch of poles that looked like dowel rods and a stack of dinner plates. He would start one plate spinning then start a second, third, etc. etc. Then after awhile the first plate would slow down so to keep it from falling off and breaking he would run back to that first plate and give it a turn. Well, I am kind of like that guy with my quilting and knitting projects. I work on one for awhile then another and another. But, I'm happy to say that I've finished my first pair of socks made from Koigu. I've made a pair from worsted weight yarn, and I love them.

I went to my local quilt shop last week and bought Jo Morton's new book, Yesterday's Charm. I'm still working on my Nearly Insane quilt. After I finally finish that one I will want to work on some smaller projects for sure. Now I'm off to the sewing room.
