A Bit of Random

I was up half the night with a sick little urchin so the best I can offer is a little bit of random this grey Monday morning:

For Sarah

– I finished this pillow for my friend Sarah. Now Martha’s pillow is safe from the threat of the pillow-napper.

For a Pair of Big Brothers

– I also finally finished these big brother gifts. That pencil case drove me crazy. It’s pretty cute though so I’m getting over it.

Virtul Quilting Bee - AugustVirtul Quilting Bee - February

– I finished my last two squares of the Virtual Quilting Bee. There is more to say as this project wraps up so I’ll save that for another day.

Knitting on Toothpicks

– I started a new pair of socks. The yarn — Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock Multi in Pinstripe– and the pattern — Jaywalker by Grumperina — were made for each other.

Happy Monday!

    I’m not sure I’d say Martha’s pillow is totally safe, but it’s definitely safER. I really love my pillow though and I’m still sort of flabbergasted that you made one for me. You’ve set a dangerous precedent here, Jennifer. Now I must exert all the impulse control I have so that I don’t give in to the whiny, wanty, McWhinester that I really am. I’ll try to be good. I really will. It’ll be easier once I have my pillow to squish though.

    I meant to add that I hope the sick urchin recovers soon. The up-half-the-night sort of sick is the pits for everyone involved. Healthy vibes.

    Very attractive pillow. The colors will be wonderfully soothing for a long time to come.
