Saturday Roundup


It has been a week of ups and downs, but still I managed to work through my worries about what the world is becoming.

I did lots of extra cleaning, getting things in tip top shape and hopefully tidy enough that things will stay that way if and when I go in for my surgery. However that seems farther away as the province is having an uptick in Covid-19 cases that just might stop the surgeries once again. Still I am carrying on under the optimistic theory that soon I will be in and out of surgery well on the road to recovery.

I finished Harvey's Christmas gift at the beginning of the month. Using yarn from my stash (still have most of one ball left so I foresee some more mitts being fashioned this winter).

Ignore the mess of yarn on the floor, I need to tidy once again. The sweater is actually not this shade of blue. It is more of a dark royal blue.

Then I started work on the cozy for Harvey's carboy. No picture of the item. I made it out of an old towel so it really isn't that pretty to look at.

I worked on the cross stitch that I put aside and managed some stitching in the early afternoons.

I don't know how much I will get completed this month as things have gotten dark and dreary. I will keep you all updated on it's progress.

I also moved on to making a quilt top. Not that it will be completed this month (unless I draw the number once again) but I have managed a bit of work on it.

This is going to be the center portion of the quilt. Nothing quite matches correctly and it needs pressing. I now know why the triangles are cut before sewing. I will do better next time.

These are the blocks which will surround the center.

I still have some to sew together and then I will need to press them. I will finish the blocks off tomorrow and Tuesday is ironing day so I will add these to the pile.

On Monday I chose another number to work on. Hopefully I might even pick the quilt number once again.

Everybody have a wonderful evening. 

God bless.


  1. Do you ever run out of energy? You seem indefatigable!

  2. I love seeing all your handiwork, Jackie. You have been busy indeed. Everything's so lovely, especially that sweater. What a gorgeous blue! ~Andrea xoxo

  3. What a beautiful sweater! I admire your skills.

  4. The sweater is gorgeous! You're definitely a handicrafter extraordinaire. And a very productive one as well.

    I'm hoping you are able to get the surgery soon. It must be worrisome to have to wait for that call.

    Take care and stay well.

  5. You are so energetic Jackie! I love the fabric used in your quilt.

  6. Gosh, what a lot done. Very productive.

  7. My goodness! You are unstoppable! Look at all those projects.
    The sweater is wonderful! Of course, I had no doubt it would be! :)

  8. I just love all your projects, makes me jealous, all I get to do is sew for others. But someday.....
