That looks to be some intense paper piecing, Chris! I am certain it is going to be stunning!

Gorgeous socks, Mary! You have never mentioned the rescue dog's name. Did you give her one? 

Comment by Riana Noyes on April 5, 2020 at 9:19pm

Barbara, glad you found it! That happens to me sometimes, usually trying to find a dark colored item in a purse with black lining. I will never buy one again lined in black! 

Mary, we certainly must allow ourselves a bit of comfort. Likely the rythmn of your knitting lets poochie know you're there to keep her company...and you get warm feet as a reward :-))

super socks, Mary!!

Nice socks, Mary.  I should send you some of my yarn stash so you can make more socks.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on April 3, 2020 at 11:54am

Lovely, Mary.  I think that it is a good strategy to make what makes you feel good!

Gail, I cut out 3 more face masks to make this afternoon.  I am using my layer cakes so that each side is a different colour.

I also sewed on the binding on my PhD Challenge and I'll do the pinning tonight while watching T.V.  And I did a little work on Block 10 of the LBQ.

I confess socks are just more comforting just now...plus I can supervise little dog who is home and doing much better.  This was a self striping yarn.

Gail, White on white!!! After I looked through every book I had been using and every tub and the trash and every nook and cranny. There it was, glory be!!

Barbara, hidden in plain sight!

Comment by Barbara Hughes on April 3, 2020 at 11:17am

Hurray!! Found my flower motif sitting right on my white table in plain sight. Just couldn't see it.

Comment by Gail Brown on April 3, 2020 at 11:17am

Chris, all I can say is WOW!  Your work is beautiful, can't wait to see the finished product.

Elizabeth, I'm going to have to make some tie masks, I've run out of elastic.  Elastic is as hard to get as toilet paper because of every one making masks.  I've been making them for family members and friends as well as for Grand Daughter who works in doctors office.  I'm still plugging away on PHDs too.

Barbara, that's what we do, put things away so we'll know where they are, somewhere that was perfectly logical at the time.  Maybe we need to take some of those memory boosting vitamins, or maybe logic changes over time.

Linda, so nice that your neighbor brought you those masks.  It seems like this situation has brought out the kindness in people.  So many people doing things to help others. 

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on April 3, 2020 at 10:52am

Don't feel bad, Linda.  Take it one day at a time and do what we are supposed to do to survive.  The pattern for a face mask with ties for yourself isn't too hard.  Are the ones your neighbour brought you washable?   Then you are set with 3.

Comment by Linda Koller on April 3, 2020 at 10:34am

Everyone is doing such beautiful work. Elizabeth, I can't wait to see your completed Tulip Twist. Right now I feel very useless and unproductive. I saw something on Facebook yesterday for those of you sewing face masks. A nurse said please use a different fabric for each side of the mask. This way when you take it off you will know which side is the side to safely put against your face when you put it back on....very important!! A very kind lady in the neighborhood brought me 3 face masks yesterday. I'm so thankful as I'm down to three disposable masks left in the package a doctor gave me.

I can't look at patterns right now! To many beautiful patterns to grab my attention.

I have the last two tops to my three table runners finished. I know Momma Duck said to put things away, but I can't find my flower motif that I put on the other runner. I have look every where and I know I must have put it in the logical place to use again....But where is it???? Its about a 5 x 5 white flat plastic. I have a tub that I keep my work in when I'm on a project. It's not there. 

Comment by Riana Noyes on April 3, 2020 at 8:40am

Carla. How is the Fruit & Feathers quilt coming?

Duckies, l know there's a lot going on in the world to grab our attention, but let's stay focused . 

Comment by Riana Noyes on April 3, 2020 at 8:36am

Oooh Liz, can't wait to see your Tulip Twist completed! I've added your next project,the Christmas tree wall hanging to the PHD list. :-))

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on April 3, 2020 at 8:29am

Chris, your Vintage Rose borders look so complicated!  You are a virtuoso (hope that means what I think it means) LOL

I trimmed the sides of the Tulip Twist and assembled the binding.  And I sewed 2 tie face masks.  Hubby wore his downstairs to pick up the morning paper and his fit really good!

Comment by Riana Noyes on April 2, 2020 at 6:28pm

Wow, Chris, that's some very fine sewing!

Comment by Chris Michelle on April 2, 2020 at 5:41pm

All the pieces for the final borders on my Vintage Rose project are sewn and ready to begin assembling! I already started putting together units in the center a couple of months ago. Here are all the pieces for the borders.
