Pieces of Time Blocks

I am pleased to have a storm day to catch up on my blocks of the month.

These are Pieces of Time blocks, they are 7.5" blocks.

This weekend I also machine quilted this Drunkard's Path quilt that my Mother made -

The blocks are13.5" (made up of 3.5" DP blocks), and the quilt is 41" square. She cut out the blocks on her GO! Baby.

This past week I finished knitting an entrelac shawl (more like a scarf, it is ~2m or 79" long).

The pattern is Entrelac Shawl with Tassels by Eva Martinsson. A really lovely, well explained pattern.

I used merino wool and silk that I dyed and spun. I made a few changes to the pattern here is my Ravelry page for this project.

This is a picture of the storm that is keeping me in - high winds.

A couple of years ago I participated in a 365 day photo challenge, this year the same group started up again. There are nine of us from different parts of the world, so it is interesting to see the similarities and differences - it is a fun protect. Mine is Joanne's 365 Snapshots.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Love your background on those 4 blocks...rather busy but not, if that makes favorite kind of backgrounds! Beautiful scarf. I am spun and dyed the yarn? Wow!

Oh that wind today was something else! I love the layout your Mom used for the drunkard's path. I don't think I have seen that one before.

I see you are working on a Lori Smith design. I like most of her applique patterns and have done a couple.
