Some ripping and some knitting

I know I haven't blogged for a few days, but I've really had nothing blog worthy to write about. I'm well stocked at the craft shop and I'm in a bit of a creative lull, looking for my next project. I'm kind of feeling that I need some new creative inspiration so I signed up for a course with Dion Dior at Joggles on using the new Silk acrylic paints. Lesson one is up but I'm waiting for the paints.

This is the first quilt of my son's girlfriend's mom. She tried to machine quilt it herself but ran into trouble. I offered to quilt it for her but first I had to spend some time snipping yesterday. Straight line quilting was highlighting the few little misaligned seams and she understandably had a couple of tucks. It happens to the best of us!
So now I'm ready to iron and baste it for quilting. I plan to do a simple meander.

This is the little top down baby sweater I've been knitting from some yarn that was given to me. It is very soft and seems to be cotton.
