Thursday again. The Creepy Dudes, as Tori has taken to calling these Hummel boys, are almost completely stitched. I'm missing one colour of floss, DMC 437, but have a trip to Midd planned this morning, so I'll check at Ben Franklin. Barring that, I'll use something else. Who'll know? The backstitching will take a while, and I'm pretty certain I won't be able to work on that in the evenings - it's a lot of dark-on-dark and geeze, I can't see up close to read in the DAYtime anymore without my readers.
Since I didn't include a picture of the scarf last week, here it is. It really hasn't progressed much at all since the band concerts ended a few weeks ago - that was my knitting time. But if I can't see to stitch at night, I guess I can knit... This pattern can practically be done with my eyes closed.
And finally, and only for a little while, here's Tori's quilt. I'll assemble the top today, this is just the chunks laid out on the floor. I had started sewing the remaining 12" blocks together and oh geeze! I was short 6. Six! SIX!? How the heck did lose my ability to reliably count to 12? I could not get my head around how that could have happened. I tried pencil and paper. No good. I tried a calculator... maaaaaybeee there was a light at the end of this tunnel. Only way to know was to push back the couch, throw everything on the floor, and lay it out. So I did. And I had exactly enough. Whew!
I'll swap out this picture for something different later today. Tori's at school until 3 then babysitting until 4:30. Plenty of time to hid the evidence, both virtual and tangible. Done, oh, and DONE!
