I had a light bulb moment!

Edited: I just noticed I had the quilt upside down the fish is upside down lol. It is supposed to be a redfish.

It hit me last night. Hubby has a new computer. So I went looking through his bookmarks and he hasn't had me bookmark the blog yet! So here is a few pictures of where I stand on the quilt. Sorry the pictures are terrible but he is my picture taker lol. I did the best I can with my phone.

Slow Stitching Sunday

Just a couple more row and I will be at the heel of the first sock. Working on it at night while hubby is here. On the quilting front, I prepped the rest of the first row of the Dear Hannah yesterday, and am about 1/3 through with the quilting on the surprise quilt. Go over to
Kathy's Quilts to see what others are working on.

 I am about 1/3 finished with the hand quilting on the surprise quilt. I did a little quilting the other night on the Baltimore blue. I have a couple more inches on the sock. I printed out some more block patterns for the Dear Hannah this morning.  It is really hard when I want to be working on the Irish Chain and have to find things to work on while he is home lol. Oh well he goes back to work Monday morning lol.

Here is a picture of the sock.
