SUNDAY SNAPSHOTS

November was my month to ask for blocks from the girls in the Bee Purposeful group. I asked them for strips of flying geese and this is what has arrived so far :


I plan to arrange them going in every direction like this

I made another stocking for one of my boys' girlfriend.  She likes bright colours    : )


I've been knitting every chance I get.  This is going to be a hat band


I showed my daughter in law's some yarn I had purchased and asked them what they liked. Both of them chose the plum.  Uh oh...........


Sure hope I can manage three hats by Christmas!
How are your gifts coming?

The hatbands look great!
My Christmas gifts are coming along very, very slowly. I think I'll be sewing up until Christmas Eve.

Nancy said...

I love your geese, Carla! I think you can get three hats done by Christmas. It seems to me that you work very quickly. Your knitting is beautiful.

Wonderful flying geese, and I can just see how it will be with lots of them flying every which way.

Three hats? That's a lot of re-run movie watching--hope they're something great!

My problem is, as soon as I finish up one I can think of two more I ought to make. Good thing there is a hard and fast deadline to Christmas or I'd be so behind I could never catch up!

LOVE those flying geese and your plan for them is perfect. What a striking quilt that will be. :)

Good luck on your knitting too. Your daughters-in-law both have excellent taste!

The flying geese strips are awesome!

The knitting looks great too. Is that the Irish Hiking hat pattern?

Karen McIsaac said...

Love the plum too! Your flying geese look awesome...

Wish my projects were coming along better, but we've had a serious health crisis arise with my mom, I'm hoping to get some sewing done this week though...

Caroline said...

The flying geese were a great idea! I'll be in my first bee block this year and I'm having the hardest time deciding on a block for my month - decisions. . .decisions. . ;)

Your knitting is SO pretty. My gifts are not coming along so well. I planned to knit three cowls (a practice one for me, and then two as gifts). I have made so many errors on mine that I have kind of given up on the other two, at least in time for Christmas. Obviously.

Anne said...

Look forward to seeing how your geese come together. They are fun so far.

Carla said...

Two things I just haven't mastered. Knitting and flying geese. Well, flying geese I've done, I just don't like to do them. Why? I have no idea. All of this looks wonderful. You have serious knitting talent.

Benta AtSLIKstitches said...

The flock looks great, good luck with the hats!

wendyroomcreations said...

Those flying geese strips look amazing together. I can't wait to see your finished quilt or the finished hats. Knitting must make such a welcome distraction. Philippa xx

Rene' said...

Love your strips of flying geese! Brilliant bee block idea. This is another pretty stocking as well. I need to make two this year…guess I better get sewing.

Dolores said...

The flying geese are just wonderful and the stocking turned out very nice. I do like your hat band. Where can I find the pattern? It would make a perfect gift for my daughter.

Carrie P. said...

those geese are pretty.
wow! your knitting is awesome.

quiltmania said...

Carla, you need to take a breath! LOL. The geese are going to be great.

Kevin the Quilter said...

That scrappy goose quilt is going to be, yet ANOTHER, quilt I LOVE of yours! As for my gifts, I have bound 2 quilts, and have 3 more to bind! YIKES!

Nicky said...

Love those gorgeous flying geese and want to see the rest of that hat!
