Quilt With Us

Well, I've made slow progress on my UFO's.  I finished #2 blue jean strip rag rug and is now by the back door and looks amazing.  After cleaning my machine of all the jean threads and dust/lint, I swiftly moved on to the next, improv strips (meaning cut with scissors and no ruler) from my scrap bag which are cut into 60 degree triangles and resewn into rows.  This will be a charity quilt and not too large.  Also on my cutting table...blocks for a Christmas theme table runner.  I tend to look ahead like this, always keeping my mind open for new or ongoing projects, and maybe this will be done before Christmas this year.  

Leaves are changing color here and some trees have dropped their leaves, seems early, but really enjoying the show and hope the suspense will last.  Yes, I love fall .....the beautiful colors, the harvest, the apple cider.  No, not looking forward to those long winter months.  However, I have been scoping out the crochet patterns for an awesome project to work on.  Thinking a nice sweater is in order but have never made one, only afghans, a purse/tote, scarves, socks, hats, mittens, slippers, leg warmers, wrist-lets, a cape-let, and a shrug.   But, after all this, how hard can a sweater be?   As with quilting, I have a problem following patterns sometimes and like to veer off and do my own thing.  ;o)

What a great rug!  Good luck with the crochet project...I admire anyone who can knit or crochet anything more complicated than dish cloths and scarves :-)

What a great way to use up old jeans.  And it should last for years!

If, I veered off knitting that sweater would have three arms! Your rug turned out great!
