What time is it?

Time for Project Runway!! Are any of you watching? Any stand out designers yet? It might be too early to tell, but I kind of like Christopher - week one's winner. We'll see - watching just inspires me to want to create something. It also inspires me to start a stockinette sock to work on while tuning in ::

Yarntini in Make it Work! and Carry On! inspired by the ever-charming Tim Gunn. Yarntini and I agree we would like to just watch Tim grocery shop he seems so darned nice.

I have also been working on my Wonky Log Cabin blocks for the ORBC quilt-a-long. The QAL is being lead by Quilt Dad - he is just awesome. I kind of wish I had a quilt dad, or a quilt husband - but then he would be in my stash - nevermind. Here is what I had as of this morning::

The fabric is Lantern Bloom by Laura Gunn. It seems crazy busy, but I think a solid sashing between the blocks will define them a bit. They are kind of addictive. I made 5 more today and figure about 4 more for a lap size quilt. This pattern eats up the fabric and I have scraps all over my sewing room.

I can't believe another weekend is already coming to a close. Fall is upon us and I love it! It time for apple pie, pumpkins and wind breakers. Not to mention fall TV - em, Curb Your Enthusiasm...

Have a great week!

I like Shirin, I wonder how well she would do at mens wear though. Love the new blocks.

I am also enjoying project runway and I like the guy who dyed the dress in the toilet (although I don't approve of that), but Chris is good too! The quilt is great!

I'm excited about Project Runway and fall TV :) That's some pretty sock yarn! Are you going to use it together?

The quilt blocks look great! I'm sure they'll sew up into a fun quilt.

I don't have cable, so I'm not watching Project Runway (though many of my friends are addicted). I've pointed out to DH that I'd get more knitting done if we had cable -- but he's somehow not convinced!

Reminds me I need to catch up on some Project Runway - no cable, so watching on the internet.

Love the Yarntini colors! (and, also a Tim Gunn fan - he's the highlight of the show!)

YES I am watching! I think I like
Althea the best so far. If I had legs like that model, I would SO want her outfit from last week. I also agree about Tim Gunn...I think every place of business needs a Tim Gunn. His advice and constructive criticism are so fantastic...plus he seems like the nicest person ever.

I love Project Runway! There isn't one stand out designer for me yet, but I love Epperson's phone call to his family last week!

Loving PR this season. I don't know if any one stands out just yet, but I'm keeping my eye on the petite girls. I think they have all the talent.

We don't get Project Runway. I feel like I'm missing out! :(
I love the Yarntini, and stockinette is perfect to knit during TV!

I am loving your wonky cabin blocks. I really need to get some Lantern Bloom fabric. I am not sure why I don't have any yet since I am such an impulsive obsessed fabric buyer.
