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.
~When finally the last carols have floated away into the starry darkness, the last good night has been said, the last wrapped package laid under a shining tree, there comes a small, quiet enclosure of time for every person to be alone with Christmas. ~ A Farmwife's Almanac of Country Living by Rachel Peden
I am a wife, the mother of four grown sons, and Nana to four grandchildren. I work part-time as a librarian/ archivist at a university library. I enjoy knitting socks and mittens and other items for charity, reading, hand quilting, growing old-fashioned flowers, and bird watching.
