Weekend Half Finishes

With only a limited time for crafting this weekend I was determined I'd make the most of it and so I did.

The top for my cousin's baby's quilt is all sewn together and in need of a press.  I didn't get round to basting it as I really wanted it all sewn together before I guessed the quantity of wadding (batting?) and backing fabric required, so couldn't go shopping for more fabric until the stitching was done. 

I think I'm going to use a coordinating fat quarter and a coordinating plain to make the back but need to go to a quilt shop to figure out the colour (neither of the two fabric shops within a half hour drive of my house open on a Sunday).  I'm also toying with incorporating the remaining HSTs in the back somehow.  I'll have a little think over this helped by probably not having the chance to do any sewing until near the end of the month, but can't take too long as the baby is due in April. 

I also managed to finish a sock which has been on the go for well over a year (possibly two).  I now need to start its mate.

The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill in Peacock (I think) and the photo doesn't do it justice (more work needed on staging and photgraphing my craft items one feels).  The pattern is Pomatomus by Cookie A (Pomatomus) which I have found fun to knit once I got my head round the slightly tricky pattern.  I want to start a shawl but I am forcing myself to finish off at least the two pairs of socks I have on the go.  Oh and I have decided I much prefer knitting socks on shorter DPNs, these felt really awkward.

I just love the Zig Zag quilt. Great colours. Was it easy to make???

Hope the sock gets a mate soon
