Feeling Better!

Thank you to everyone who left well wishes on my last post. I am feeling much better today, although not perfect. My sinuses still aren't cooperating. It is cold and dreary out. On and off snow flurries all day and when I look out my kitchen window I can't tell where my neighbour's roof leaves off and the sky begins. Everything is white.

But my day has been brightened by Barb of Bejeweled Quilts, sent me these nifty little squares of fabric. There are 28 of them. And she even included a spool of thread. Thank you Barb! I have no idea what I will make with them yet. I might even have some fabrics that would go with these. Anybody got any ideas?

Also, while I was recuperating, I knit my son a new scarf. He wanted one in black. So I just cast on 39 stitches and did a knit three, purl three across the rows. I changed the knit and purl stitches every three rows to create a sort of basket weave effect. Maybe you can see it if you click on the photo. I love this pattern for a scarf. A friend of mine suggested it to me many years ago and I still make a lot of scarves this way. It is an easy pattern and gives me just enough of a challenge to be able to watch television or just recuperate from a cold while I knit.

That scarf looks very comfy!

As for the charm squares, lately whenever I get charm squares, I make disappearing 9-patch things....runners or quilts. So.....that would be my do a D9P runner with those charm squares. You could use 27 of the squares for the front and keep one square to use for a label on the back! (And no...I won't be offended if my suggestion isn't taken..LOL) I'm so glad you are feeling somewhat better.

I am so sorry that you have been feeling under the weather. I hope you will be feeling better again very soon. What wonderful fabric. I am sure you will make something wonderful with it. I think your scarf will come in very handy right now. It looks wonderful.
