Back in the swing of things

Well we brought my very tired son home Friday. He slept the whole way home and slept most of the day on Saturday while I did up his enormous mounds of laundry. It is so good to have him home, but it will take him a while to adjust to being without all of the very good friends he made while he was there for 5 weeks. I have been busy this week preparing to have him home again, but managed to get in a few projects. I now have my camera back in hand! My Harmony needles came in the mail and I wholeheartedly agree with Samantha from The Handmade Dress: These needles are awesome! I have started a set of wrist warmers (courtesy my Chicks with Sticks book) in orange wool. I only knitted on the trip back from Paducah so I haven't gotten very far. I also wanted to post my comfy knit skirt, which still needs hemming. It is really just an around the house skirt, but fairly cute. I did the entire thing with my serger. I also have pictures of my quilt top that I finished in Hilton Head. I have bought a chocolate brown for the border and will use strips from fat quarters that match the quilt to do the final border. I am going to back it with the teal and brown polka dot material. I really like the look of this project. Lastly, I made another Sorbetto tank from Colette patterns on Friday. This one is yellow seersucker that I had left over from my daughter's sundress project. This tank pattern is so easy and turns out great everytime. I was surprised to see the flickr group for this project-there are tons of Sorbettos out there! You need to download this easy 2 piece pattern for free at Colette if you haven't already. Still working on school and helping with the barn, but trying to slip in crafting when I can. Such is life. Hope everyone had a great time of worship today. God bless!
