I will be taking a couple of weeks off from the computer, so I thought I should let you all know. I will start this on Monday, but may not have time to post tomorrow. So I figured I'd get a post in tonight. Since I won't be on here for a little bit, I am going to share some pictures of recent projects.
I finished the binding on Alpine Star last week. This one was lots of fun to piece and quilt. It is another Thimbleberries pattern. Hmmm, think I might be obsessed with Thimbleberries? LOL
Here is a closeup of the center.
I used muslin on the back, so the hand quilting really shows up.
I also finished Froggy Went a Courtin' last week. This one is not a Thimbleberries pattern. I kind of came up with this one from a couple of other patterns. I bought the fabric several years ago. I started it, but it was just plain boring, so I switched things around and came up with this. I like the way this one turned out.
Here is a closeup of the star block.
Here is a close up of the square in a square block.
I used leftover fabrics from the front for the backing and the binding. I love projects where I have enough fabric from the front to make the back. Just pulls it all together for me. I used cotton batting so it crinkled when I washed it.(grin)
Here is some of what I will be doing in the next few weeks. It is the Birds and Blooms wall quilt and a couple of table runners. They are marked, sandwiched and ready to be hand quilted.
Ok, I will leave you with a project that I am so proud of. I finished this little knitted dish cloth tonight. It is the first project that I knitted by following a pattern and without anyone's help. I am thinking about using this same pattern for a scarf. I showed it to my husband and asked if he thought the pattern would be ok for a scarf for our SIL. He said 'He's a man', with this shocked expression on his face and in his voice. LOL I told him I did not intend to make it lime green, just use the pattern. I think he still thinks this is a girly pattern, so I may change the pattern. I'll have to see how I am feeling when I begin it. I am very slow at knitting (much faster at crocheting), but I am starting to enjoy it. I printed off a 23 page tutorial on knitting socks earlier. Good thing Kevin just put new cartridges in the printer. LOL
Well, that is it for me tonight. Everyone have a good couple of weeks. I hope to be back by the end of the month. Thank you for visiting.
