Unfortunately, I don't know yet how to quilt. I have ordered up some books from Amazon, one of which includes a pattern for coasters. I figure I will start out with that and see how frustrated I get with it. :)
On to my other obsession, knitting. I have knit nothing this week. But I have been crocheting. I pulled out my old standby, the Babette. I had half of a panel crocheted and another panel ready to sew onto the blanket. I crocheted up the rest of the unfinished panel and my trusty assistant, Chauntel, and I spent 2 hours on Saturday sewing it up. Which means, it would have taken me alone 4 hours. How do I love thee, Chaun. :)) I am not going to show you the progress on the blanket (I am so close to being done that you will just have to wait to see it in it's full, finished glory) but I will show you one of the final 36 squares.
And how about a pretty picture of a plant persevering through in this world of concrete and asphalt:
