The goings on hereabouts

Posted by on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

I got stuck, like I always do, feeling like I couldn’t post about presents.  And I was spending a lot of time working on presents.  Silly silly silly.

But other things are in the works.

We replaced our slapdash potrack with this beauty:

All of that shining copper makes me so giddy.  I have a thing about copper.  You may have noticed.  I hope to find a great clock or something for the top, but that will take a while.  This replaces a chrome towel bar that was too small and was bound to pull out of the wall if I hung all of my copper pots on it.

I’m knitting away on a couple of things for others:

Some mitts for a friend.

And some socks for Scott.

But mostly, I’ve been working on my string quilt.

All of the blocks are finished.  Now I need to sash it.  I’m still pondering my options.  Since these blocks are foundation pieced, they’re kind of thick.  I haven’t been able to find enough of a quilting cotton I like for sashing, so I may go with something heavier to match the weight of the blocks and add some interesting texture. In the meantime, I’m playing with layout and picking favorites.

    I love your string quilt! All that fabulous color, and the movement of the diamonds formed by the corners – just beautiful.
