"I've Got Nothin In My Brain"

As I write this I'm listening to Taylor Swift singing "I've Got Nothin In My Brain."  Lol!  I think every woman has a brain overflowing with creativity.  Sometimes it's hard to shut off!

Anyways, today I want to share a few finishes.  First up, A Jelly Roll Race quilt liberated from my unfinished top basket.

I was motivated to finish this top so that it can be given to the local "Elizabeth Fry Society" for a transition home they are about to open.  More about that soon.

I had to quilt daisies, it just made sense!

I finished up a couple of knitting projects.  The baby hats are the same wool and pattern, with the only difference being moss stitch on one, and two by two ribbing on the other.  The socks were a busy hands project from a little mini holiday a couple of weeks ago.  I'm quite happy with how they turned out.

The favourite part of my week was a Monday night "chat" with the Sagebrush Quilters' Guild. Thanks to Sandy for the following pics.

Thanks for all the positive feedback from the wonderful women of the Guild!

And the least favourite part of my week…….

Mechanic work on my Long Arm Machine.  All those little tools for little screws.  Uggg!  Glasses definitely needed.  I changed out my Check Spring as it wasn't working quite right.  Within five minutes, my off/on switch went.  I no longer panic when this happens!  I go through a few each year.  The custom work (In The Ditch) really stressed the part.  Time to order a few more.

I hope you had a fabulous week, and found a little time to let the creativity leak out!
