No Show and Tell here really...

I keep meaning to link up with Leonie on Thursdays and never write my posts on the right day,
and of course the day I remember I haven't finished anything!!

Currently I'm working on two Christmas quilts scrap vomit quilts
so nothing to see there then!

I've got another quilt that I'm unpicking the basting from and have 1000 ends to sew in,
nothing to show there.

I have a Griffin on the needles for David that has got too big and heavy to drag about,
but it's time will come next week while I am watching the 
tour de France. Can't wait for that. Nothing to show there yet.

I've been working on this purple and grey Griffin for Reuben for months.
I have many many photos of it, these are just a few of them.

The fact it is so slow is nothing to do with the pattern which is awesome,
but more to do with how slooooow I am at knitting.

I've finished the body and onto the hood.
Nothing really to see here then either.

Sorry folks, maybe next week.

Folks who have actually finished stuff here.

  9. Tour de France! Yay! I stitch a lot while we watch too. First up for me is a finish too: I'm hand sewing the back of thd binding on my first bed sized quilt. Do you hear commentary by Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen too? It would be cool to think you do, thousands of mile from me in southwestern Ohio.

    I found your blog through sew mama sew this year and I'm really enjoying your mix of crafting and life posts. I enjoy your way with words!
