WIP Wednesday - sewing the quilt

I have a few projects in the works, as usual.

I'm finding spinning to be quite soothing. I'm spinning on another Bullseye Bump. The colorway is called "Moody Valentine" and started with a dark purple and moved to the grey and the white that you can see in the picture. After the white is pink and then blank. I plan on Navajo plying  the single when I'm done and aiming for a sport or DK weight.

On the needles is Ishbel, but that is paused because I ran out of yarn. I'm waiting for the yarn to get here and will hopefully finish knitting this before the end of the month.

I also have my Icelandic souvenir sweater. It's knit bottom up and I think I'm only a couple of inches away from the under arm. I had to do some major recalculations on the pattern since their largest size was for a 36 inch chest and the hip to underarm measurement was 6.5 inches making for a really short torso!

Finally, the baby blanket. It has been pieced and a border added on. I finally bit the bullet and pinned it to the minky I'm using the back it and started sewing. I sit down for a few minutes and sew a little bit on the machine. I also hope to be done with this by the end of the month and get it off in the mail.
