AS I WATCHED...

... The Olympics in 2008 I put together this quilt....





....there were lots of beads and different threads involved...







.. and it kept me going through out the games xx .. I may have mentioned before how much I LOVE the games xx lol x

During 2012 in London I MUST have been busy with ..SOMETHING.. I just don't know what it was!!!!!!!!! Hey-Ho x

So far this time I have been working on ..


(in-between appointments and taxi duties that is ! lol ) I find I am knitting faster as the races .. it has been swimming the last 2 evenings and rowing to-day ... get more exciting ! I will be finished with MANY projects at this rate.. and be exhausted!

Have fun

Diane, Your beaded, embellished flower quilt from 2008 is gorgeous. I'm so glad you included close-ups of individual blocks.

I didn't intend to watch the Olympics much this time, but I haven't missed a night so far.

Love your 2008 quilt! Lots of beautiful things to look at! You will be finished that shawl in no time if you speed up with the races!!!

I love your quilt and the fact that you mentioned in the label about the games. I'm finishing off some cross stitching while watching recordings of some of the sports. Due to the time difference I m'm in bed during mots of the games. THank goodness for playback and recorders

I remembered that beautiful quilt! The Olympics are amazing. I feel the same way you do about the games. I've tried to work on my chicken appliqué project; but, I find my eyes glued to the screen and not on the project.

Such a pretty quilt and a nice reminder too. I haven't seen any of the olympic events. I guess they are all being shown during the night.
