The blocks are from the book Farm Girl Vintage and they were very fun to piece! There is a sheep block in the book, so I plan on making myself some sheep pillows sometime. I also would love to make the sampler quilt, which has all different 6" blocks. Another member of the guild is working on that and the blocks are just adorable.
The other excitement of the weekend was that we had professional pictures taken of our family! In eight years of marriage, we have never done that (even for our wedding), so I am very excited to see how they turn out. Lucy was quite grumpy during the whole shoot, so hopefully there is one where she doesn't look angry. We were all practicing our smiles before going, and clearly she is capable of smiling. Silly girl.
No real updates on knitting as I just haven't been doing much. Next time I should have at least one FO. I realized this morning that we are about 5 weeks away from Christmas and I haven't started any of my gift knitting yet! YIKES! I don't knit a ton for holiday gifting, but I have a few smaller things planned. The yarn and patterns are all chosen (and printed out somewhere, I think) but I need to start! Perhaps that will be my plan for the weekend...in between a pampered chef party, time to sew, and a guild meeting. Man oh man.
Get your knit on!
