Vacation Projects Revisited
Well, I had better show what I worked on. I promise that I didn't sleep or play on my kindle that much while we were in the car. :) It was a little tricky to stitch, however, when I needed to put my feet up because they were swollen...my belly really got in the way!
1. Baby quilt - done! I finished the binding on Sunday, day one of the trip. Hooray! It got washed and dried at my parents' house, so it is ready to go for baby.
2. Knitted baby blanket - done! I worked on this in the evenings at my grandma's house after putting Timothy to bed. I also worked on it a lot on day 1 of the return trip and finished it at the hotel. I still need to tuck in a couple of knots and then wash/stretch it, but hopefully that will happen later this week.
3. Quiet book - I got some handstitching done, but it proved to be really difficult to work on in the car. Jared is out of town for the rest of the week for the district convention in Sioux Falls, so I am putting this on the priority list for the next couple of evenings. I was able to sketch some things out and cut felt pieces at my parents' table, so now it just needs to be put together.
4. Dishrags - I didn't start on any until yesterday, but I finished one and started another. Completing the second is going to happen as soon as I finish this post and will take about 20 minutes. Then I need to tackle the dishes before diving into the next project. Sigh.
