Today's eye candy is brought to you by the color red.

Up this weekend: It's Pacific International Quilt Festival time! My original plan was to go on Saturday, but I might hold off until Sunday. It really depends on how much I feel like fighting the Saturday crowds. If I go first thing on Sunday, I avoid some of the crowds, but then I upset my entire Sunday routine. I'm still thinking about it. I'll see how I feel in the morning.
I typically don't spend a lot of money at the show, but I would like to get some variegated thread to use for quilting. They usually have at least one thread vendor there. I don't plan on buying a lot of fabric, but if I see something that might be useful (read: it's pretty), you know it will come home with me!
I'm in the home stretch of the Alcea Cowl. I have about 4 inches left to knit! Once I get to the right length, I can work the drop stitches row and bind off. The instructions say to block it before joining the ends, so I guess that's what I'll do. I would have rather joined it and then blocked it, but I'm impatient that way.
I'd like to make a bit more progress on the I'm Just Mad About Citron quilt. I'd really like to finish this quilt this year, which means I have about 6 weeks. As you know December is all about the cookie...yup, it's coming up fast!
