What a fun day we had : )  Saturday was World Wide Knit in Public day and I was fortunate to be able to host it at my shop.

These were the first to arrive

There was lots of knitting and chatter throughout the day.

The night before, I was getting my nails done and telling the girl about the knitting in public day and she asked if I would like a ball of yarn on one nail.  Well...yes I would !

I also had cupcakes made for the occasion with knitting needles on top

I managed a picture before they were all gobbled up  : )

My only finish for the week is this little veggie hat. I think I'll call it a beet.

What about you?  Did you participate in Knit in Public day?  I'm thinking maybe Kim did  : )

Enjoy your week.

It's a new week and I am in for a busy one!  I got all my bee blocks sewn this past week so my slate is clear : )

Susan in Australia is getting these words for her Spelling bee quilt
It just so happens they match my current knitting project so I took a picture

I'm pretty happy with my little 'e'

Kerry asked for this 'Yukon' block. She moved to Canada recently from the UK and is making a sort of map quilt.  It will be a pixelated style so she made up her own style of letters and had us follow that

Rene down in Florida gets this 'strawberry kiss' block in blue.  This is a fun block to sew and easy peasy

Finally, these churndash blocks are making their way to my house. I love this block in any way shape or form, so that's what I asked the ladies to make in my Mid Century Modern group. My current favourite colour combo is plum/mustard so some of them have that : )

Enjoy your week

June 5!   Here we are a week into June already.  How are your blocks coming?  This is month number 10 

I have to admit these long skinny points nearly got the best of me : )

loving these little 1" squares.

Enjoy this coming week.  I am really hoping to carve out some sewing time. I have blocks to make for last month yet.  Oh dear.........
