The show seemed smaller this year (fewer quilts? fewer vendors?) but it was fun to browse with my friend C. I bought nothing, but got a review on the Frixion marking pens that made me cautious...and enjoyed the free coffee and goodies... and won a door prize (!) which included a gift certificate to a LQS that sells particularly wonderful threads...
But before we went gallivanting I spent the morning with P's quilt -- did the 'ditching' (per Ann Petersen) and began the diamond quilting portion, using my fast-disappearing marking pen to mark only the centre of each side of the diamond, and working out how to do it (as far as possible) in a continuous line.

I'm going down one side of each diamond...and will eventually go back up the other!
On the knitting front, more finishes. First, cousin D's socks, ready for the laundry:

And... his wife A's Seyfert Cowl, which is being cast off:
It seems to me a bit shorter than the one in the pattern photo, but no problem. Cousin A is undoubtedly shorter than the pattern's model, too!
And so it goes. I think I'm on track to finish P's quilt by June 21...Wish me luck!
Hooking in to the last vestiges of Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday...check it out!
