Cathedral Window QAL

Last night I finally finished piecing the top to my Cathedral Window QAL that I've been participating in for the last two months.  I really love the end result, now I just need to figure out how I'm going to quilt it.  Some of the blocks are very thick because of all the fabric used to make the windows.  The quilt is also very heavy!

I'm also participating in the Simply Modern Bee online and we are doing the Garden Fence block by Hyacinth Quilt Designs.  It's an easy block that I've done before as part of the South Florida Modern Quilt Guild Bee.  There are two Queen Bee's for the month of November, one requested a block with orange/light blue/aqua colors, the other request purple and olive green.  I'm going to try and get them in the mail tomorrow.

On the knitting front, I made a Helvellyn hood last week using Araucania Limari yarn from my stash.  I have no idea why I would need a bulky wool hood in South Florida, but it was a fun knit and will probably come in handy when we take the Chevelle out for a drive on a cold winter night.


I've also been working making another Noro Striped Scarf since I've given away the last two I've made.  I'm using Noro Taiyo and Malabrigo Worsted (from the stash!!).  I love the color combination.

I'm getting ready to start the Derecho shawl as part of a KAL with my friends that I went to SAFF with.  I'll be using the Miss Babs Yummy Superwash Sock yarn that I bought at SAFF.  I love the colors....coral, slate and sugar!  So pretty!

I've continued to practice my new skill, tatting, and I finished a bookmark pattern that I found online.  It is shuttle tatted using size 20 thread.
