A Glorious Gallimaufry

Gallimaufry ˌɡalɪˈmɔːfri/ noun 'a confused jumble or medley of things'

That's been me these last few weeks! Jumping around from project to project unable to settle on anything; Is it just me? Is it the weather or something else?

I was going to start posting only when I had something finished to show, but that's not really going to work for me!!

I have started a new book...
worked on baby gift for a friend...

(EDITED - a few people have requested details of this pattern - it is by OGE Knitwear Designs and can be found on Ravelry HERE)

and tried to teach myself Fair Isle knitting...

I have almost finished an embroidery design...
and played with hand quilting another...
I have pricked out a third ready for class next week...
and played around with an idea for EPP...
I signed up for Sarah's 2017 BOM even though I am way behind on this year's...
I have even pulled fabrics from my stash to join in Bonnie's En Provence Mystery

I really need to get my act together and focus on something!


  1. some days I just can't seem to settle into something either and start to work on too many at once.

  2. No! Don't only post when you've finished something, i love to see what you're working on

  3. It's been a year for not settling to things, I've been having that sort of problem, too!

  4. What a cute little baby sweater! I'm about to become an aunt for the first time and I'm excited to knit some adorable baby girl things. What's the pattern called?

    Also, I've never heard that word before but I love it: gallimaufry!

  5. lovely projects you're working on!

  6. Why focus on something? I love seeing everything you are working on. It's wonderful eye candy!!

  7. I'm feeling exactly the same way!! I'm am comforted in knowing the feeling will pass - it's just frustrating in the mean time! Hope you're through it soon. Hugs

  8. The colors you have picked out for the mystery are lovely. I look forward to watching your progress.

  9. Oh my, you HAVE been busy! That is a darling little sweater you're knitting. I tried to find the pattern on Ravelry to no avail. Would you be able/willing to share the designer's name and further information? Thanks very much!
