Have been working on so many things at once that I have quite a few pictures to post.
First, I finished Beth's quilt and have a picture of her (and me) with it. She is lovely-Beth I mean. She loves her quilt which makes me very pleased.
Second, I finished a simple fringe scarf in a mustard colorway of alpaca and silk that I bought on Etsy from A Yarn or a Tale-love that shop.
Third, I finally finished my first crocheted afghan. I used Nature's Choice organic cotton yarn in a mixture of almond, walnut, espresso and french vanilla. This thing is so warm and soft. It is a good lap size or larger. I am short so it covers me from neck to feet.
Lastly, whipped up a cute vintage 80's material scarf for Mary. She loves anything nautical and my mom gave me a huge chunk of this material while I was in Knoxville last weekend.

I finished Beth's quilt today. I washed and dried it and it looks good. I have not taken final pics of it yet, but I will. Made a trip to Knoxville this past weekend. The kids all went to the UT UK basketball game. I went to quilt class with my mom and hung out with my sisters for a bit. It was a nice little trip. Found out my son had a touch of pneumonia so he is now on meds to knock that out. Progress on the house is incredibly slow. Have managed to get all the Hardie plank either in the house or on the porch. Have about 80 planks painted so far. We have marked for almost all of the electrical boxes as well. Will hopefully post some pics of the house and the quilt soon.
