Yep! I'm a couple of days late for Anthea's  EPP linky. Better late than never I suppose. I have made further progress with Little Lucy. I now have 2 and a bit rows pieced together.

My little munchkin came to visit yesterday. He is now 13 weeks old.
His knitted jacket is coming along nicely but I think it is going to be a bit big for him this winter. Maybe  more of a coat with rolled up cuffs LOL.

 I have been feeling rather inept when it comes to completing the many projects I have on the go so I am determined to at least keep on going with Little Lucy. I had a bit of a problem trying to consider  how I was going to piece this quilt so I ended up piecing it row by row like other quilts. I have nearly finished piecing this 1st row ( just a few little bits left).

I bought a Gail Pan table runner pattern a couple of weeks ago but couldn't find suitable fabric in my stash to make it. So what's a girl to do? Go to her local patchwork shop ofcourse! So yesterday I came home with some fabric .  
The shop also sells wool so I was able to buy some to start knitting something warm for my grandson. He is now 12 weeks old.
In years gone by I have always read several books a year. There were times I read over 60 but I seem to be reading less and less each year. I know this because for decades I have kept a special journal listing every book I read year by year. It is quite interesting to see how the genres have changed over time and I can see what my special interests were at the time. Well, hanging my head in shame, I declare that I have just finished the first book for the year. Isn't that pitiful? I love Philipa Gregory's books which are all based on historical fact with fiction woven in. The author is actually a historian.  I have read all her books in this series as well as many others over time.  Trouble is, I can't fit it on my bookshelf with the others. No room!
The weather is rather dismal here so I am quite happy to sit and sew, knit and crochet.

  Yesterday was Anthea's EPP Tuesday and I forgot to take some pics of my Little Lucy's progress. I have now sewn 6 parts , just another 3 to go and I can connect them all to each other.

I have also nearly completed sewing the borders around 3 of my little half inch hexi flowers.
I attempted some machine quilting on my table runner last weekend. I reckon I could have finished hand quilting it by the time I worked out how to attach the walking foot to the machine, had a needle jam, unpicked a wonky row and tied off all the ends LOL. I still need to finish quilting it. Maybe this upcoming weekend?

     Time has flown by so fast again but I have managed to complete 3 projects. I have listed the gift for Barb in this month's OPAM as I made it quite a while ago but couldn't include it with that month's OPAM due to secrecy. 

Now I am working on that table runner I had planned to make with the "welcome" stitchery and piecing the Lucy Boston blocks together.
My little munchkin came to visit yesterday and I took this funny photo. He will be 10 weeks old tomorrow. Where has the time gone?
