It's a New Dawn, It's a New Day

Yesterday was just a bad day, project wise. Everything went into the frog pond (multiple times). Rippit, rippit, rippit. Knitting, quilting -- anything I touched -- and these weren't even hard projects. I finally had to give up for the day to avoid further damage.

But it's new new day and things are better. My SAM5 March socks have turned the corner (literally) and the short-row heel on sock 1 is complete. There was still a stitch missing -- didn't seem like there should've been and (I think) it looks OK without it. We'll see if it turns up on the second sock.
The challenge quilt is not recoverable (way too ugly to hang anywhere in the house), but the fake (or is it faux) applique using blow pens was lots of fun. Something kids would like. And best of all is that the fabric stays soft, unlike many other fabric paints. This calls for a trip to Michael's to see if they still sell them. And a run through the washer to make sure they're colorfast.
