Block for Swap

Joined a swap for Fall colors and here's my completed block (I made 12 of them).  I'm having a heck of a time getting photos online.  Yahoo forced me to change my password one day.  Ever since, I've been unable to get photos from my Itouch.  Of course, yesterday, I made the connection that I could just attach it to the computer and upload (duh), but I was determined to make my email work again on the Itouch. I'm happy to report it now does. Now, if only I could figure out the problem with the newspaper on my Itouch, my life would be easier.

Here was what I was working on at the Sewing Expo. These are Easy Peasy Pineapples and they are very easy. You have NO IDEA how much easier this is. I can't get my head around paperpiecing and this totally skips that part.  There is a lot of precutting - strips and strips of it, but otherwise, pretty darn easy.  I have to go on Friday or Saturday to buy more fabric to enlarge this a little bit now that I know what I'm doing.  Of course, I could leave it that way and just make it a wall quilt? Naw.  If you also want to make an Easy Peasy Pineapple quilt without any math and without paperpiecing, go to the following website and buy the specialty ruler. So, so easy.

Sewing Expo

This week, I went to the Sewing Expo for the first time.  Really enjoyed myself.  I attended a class on Easy Peasy Pineapple quilts and yes, it is easy peasy.  I hoped to put up some photos, but am having trouble getting photos to any of my photo accounts to upload. Technology. Always changing, sometimes for the better, always with some difficulty.

I've finished all the blocks for my current swap at QATW.  Just have to press and add sashing tonight.  I really wanted to participate in another swap, but it's not wise for me to sign up for anything just now since I don't know that I can complete it.

I'm almost done with a sock from the Scarefest Socks at Ravelry.  I'm currently on the heel and plan to finish that this week.  Then to start the next one. I'm not a fast knitter, but I am determined not to have 8 projects around with just one sock completed.
