Getting busy

Okay, so I entered this challenge on Kim's Big Quilting Adventure Blog to "Finish it in August". Here is my latest project to check off my list.
This quilt called "Kaleidoscope" has been on my to do list for awhile. I made one for my sister a few years ago and had alot of fabric left. When I went to visit her, I got to sleep under it and decided I just had to make one for myself. It still needs to be quilted, but Yay... I got the top done! All the fabric was from my stash except the black border which I will also use for the binding.
I've been madly knitting (happily actually) a pair of slipper socks for my friend's birthday. I used a wonderful wool acrylic blend of yarn that is machine washable. I even crocheted a little picot edging to add to the girly appeal. They are done and she loves them.
Now I'm off to finish my next project...

Hi Deelee
Just wanted to stop by and thank you for the visit to my blog. You are set as "no reply" so I couldn't respond to your kind comments. Do try that 505 basting spray. I finish so many more projects now that I get them basted so easily. Keep up the August finishes. You are doing great!
