Design Wall Monday

My design wall hasn't changed - after a unsuccessful attempt on sewing 'Simply a bloom' rows together, I came across several hurdles.
So instead of sewing, I am ripping seams apart. Most likely the zig-zag applique stitch in between regular straight stitch threw me off with my 1/4 inch seam allowance. Several times I found the needle in the far left position... Oops.
Please have a look at other design walls that are listed on Judy's blog.
Since I don't want to bore you with just the same photo from last week, I throw in one more of the latest sock. After the Spring socks were completed and are regularly in use, meet Spice sock # 1.
Once you have figured out your measurements and favorite yarn, it is so much easier to quickly start another sock. No fancy yarn here ( just Patons Kroy Socks yarn), but it works for me: I like knitting with it, it doesn't itch when I wear it and after several washes the Spring socks still look great.

Have a great week,


  1. I like both the quilt and the socks. I found a new yarn shop today and bought yet another ball of sock yarn. I am working on my second pair of socks ever. I really like yours.

  2. I am with you! I spend nearly as much time ripping as I do sewing!

    But it is certainly a great quilt! I love the squares, and I am really into squares this year.


  3. Love your socks. Be sure to check out Bumble Beans today (Tuesday) to see YOUR blocks!!! So very pretty!! Also, can you go to the hockey game tonight? (sorry, I don't have tickets) They need your presence at the rink - they need to win tonight!! GO WINGS!!


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
