SRF Quilt Update & 2 Needle Knitted Mitten Pattern…

Our new car….ughhhIt seems that when it rains it pours… as my grandmother always said.  Anyway, I guess that in the midst of the goings on for the last week or so I seem to have taken a blogging holiday.  We got the call this morning that the Ranger newsletter we publish quarterly is now printed and ready for mailing…thank goodness… at last.  

This is our car…Last Thursday, I seem to have damaged it…grin  I will forever sing the praises of side air bags and steel reinforcement… After a few days of quite stiff and sore, a little tenderness and case of nerves, all is well.  During this time a few small things were finished… and the embroidery on my Split Rail Fence. 

I had thought that I would use an old piece of green sheeting that I have for the backing, but after finishing the embroidery on the top, I really don’t want to use old fabric for the back… and the green looks a little horrible anyway.  I guess I really didn’t expect my first quilt to please me so much…grin  So a trip to JoAnn’s is in the works for this afternoon so I can get it pinned, basted and ready to quilt.  Still not sure about my hand quilting, but will give it a try anyway.  I have found some quilting designs at Victoriana Quilters.com  and I am trying to decide which one would work for the quilting techniques.

The two small purses are simple crochet with simple twisted cording.  The mitten is the first two-needle mitten I have made… in fact it is the first knitted mitten I have ever made.  The pattern is found here with many thanks to Mariella of Knitting Nonni.
