Sewing Auto Pilot Fail

Somebody’s Sewing Auto Pilot failed yesterday.

Oh well.  This bag is meant for the kitchen to collect recyclables for the dump.

At least the “Made in America” is right-side up!

These “glitter” blocks designed by Jen Kingwell (Quilt Lovely) are really, really, really hard.  I can’t believe Kingwell made a whole quilt from them.

Maybe they get easier as one goes along…

Today is overcast and misty.  Outside, there is a wall of intense green, all mixed up with tendrils of fog.  It is so beautiful.

I planted five tomato plants yesterday, so they are loving this gentle welcoming to the garden.

The lettuce I seeded into the cold frame–into the top dressing of worm castings–is bearing now.  I picked these leaves for lunch.

I’m enjoying using the three selvage edge placemats I’ve knitted–I paired them with bright napkins that really pick out color in the placemats.  Funky and fun–and a boon to my sometimes thrifty soul.

I have a fourth one about half made.  I knit, using a garter stitch, on big needles.  14s I think.  About 32-34 stitches cast on.  It’s a soothing exercise for when I don’t want to concentrate much on anything.
