Ready for the post man.

I have not one but two parcels ready for the post office today. Last night I finished knitting up the third ball of yarn, and Maxine's scarf is about 53 inches long. Just a good size to go once around her neck and tuck into her coat. Hopefully that will keep her warm.
I've found a pattern for mittens and a hat too, maybe I'll make some of those at a later date. LOL She said in her last letter that she is still wearing the hat I made for her about six years ago! I think it's time that was replaced.
I've also finished the secret pin cushion project, made a cute extra and added a little look at the Isle of Man. That too is all parcelled up and ready to go.
So what am I doing? Well, it's still too warm to be playing about trying to quilt Kay's roses, so I'm back to knitting that baby sized jacket. I'm almost done with the second sleeve. Once I get my chores done today I'll get on with that. It really shouldn't take long to complete.
I need to make time for some reading too, The Red Issue of Homespun finally made it to my door, along with The Applique Special from Australian patchwork and quilting. I've had a quick flicker through them, but want to have a proper look.
That's it from me, I'm off to do chores.

Glad to see you're keeping busy, love the knitting, unfortunately I can't do it anymore due to slightly arthritic hands :-(
