In Progress


I have thought long and hard before posting about this project. As anyone who reads my blog knows that I have a love/hate relationship with knitting. I wanted to try one more time for a sweater. I don't know what happened, but it seemed to have clicked this time. This is the first of four pieces for the sweater and it is coming along nicely. I am now at the decreasing stage for the sleeves on the back of the sweater. I hope in a few days to start on the front and then move on to the sleeves. I am so stoked about this project and hopefully it will be the first of many sweaters to come. I am using Lion Brand Wool Ease in Wheat for this one. Off for a cuppa now.

Sampling



A new design sheet and a few fabric samples to begin stitch on. I am finally enjoying the process, now that I went back to my original ideas for fabric and such. These samples will be the inspiration for my wall hanging in the future.

New Design Sheets....



(don't know why the red is reading orange here)

I decided to start all over with my class design sheets. I had tried to use a different type of collage and there is nothing wrong with the first one I put together. It just was not what I really wanted to work with. Before class had started I wanted to use some of my gingham in my stash as I have loads of it sitting on the shelves. I have five yds of pink, three yellow and three or four yds of the red. As my project from the samples will be a wall hanging, I thought the gingham would suit really well and I would not have to go out and buy anything. I am now a very happy camper with this project and can proceed without a creative block. Sometimes our first ideas are truly the best ideas. Off to stitch a bit now on a wip of the applique variety. I am way behind.

Stars Update

I have added five more stars for my quilt, bringing the total up to 26 so far. I really need to buckle down and work on this in the evenings if I want to finish this sometime in the next year. To my credit though, this has been a slow work in progress quilt. I only work on the stars when I take my parents to dr. appointments or have to go to the hospital to sit. I am thinking I want to work on it more now so I can get this one on the bed. Off for a cuppa and some domestic chores that needs to be taken care of. Have a great day and may your needles always have thread.
