Some of My Projects This Week

 I've started more socks and I'm still working on the Lightening Steaks quilt blocks.  I'm working on a couple of other quilt tops too, but I've put those aside for now.  Because I've taken the summer off work, I have a lot more time to play including not only knitting and quilting, but also gardening and taking care of my chickens.

Lightening Streak Scrap Blocks

I've finished piecing six Lightening Streak blocks made of scraps.  The blocks are 9" square and I'm going to set them 8 x 10 to make a quilt 72" x 90".  That means I have to piece 74 more blocks.  I certainly have enough scraps to do it!
