My list from last week was fairly short:
1. Finish quilting and bind Star Crossed Plaid.
2. Keep working on the scrappy Leader/Ender Project.
3. Finalize layout for my Vortex Quilt blocks and get the flimsy put together.
4. Work on the design for the memory quilt.
5. Keep knitting those socks.
I did make some progress on some of these projects.
1. Star Crossed Plaid is 3/4 done being quilted. Then I realized I had misplaced my ruler foot, so I had to order another one. Either I left it at the Guild when we were last there for quilting, or it is in one of the bins I filled with donations for our fundraiser.
2. The scrappy leader/ender project is progressing. I did put some sashing on a couple of the blocks, but am waiting until my vision sorts itself out after today’s cataract surgery to look at the blocks and see if I want to try something other than the scrappy sashing from my scrap bins.
3. The Vortex quilt is still a pile of blocks. I need better eyesight to figure out the layout.
4. I managed to get the tshirts cut apart for the Memory Quilt. The pieces have been pressed and squared up. I have ideas for the layout but haven’t been able to finish drawing it up.
5. Keep knitting my socks. This came to an end when I realized I had two different but similar wools. I ripped them back and started with two matching balls of wool. The colour goes from navy to light blue, to green and a very pale blue/almost white. I think they will be pretty when they are done. The wool is a super wash that I have worked with before. It knits nicely and makes nice, warm socks.
I had a finish when I saw the Project Quilting 11.4 challenge. I dug through my orphan blocks and scrap bin and found enough to make my project. Normally when I make a quilt I make a couple of pillow slips that match the quilt. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough fabric to do the slips so instead I used the leftover bits and made a cover for a cushion that will go with the quilt when it is finished.
Here’s the cover:
Made to match this still to be quilted top:
Another squirrel ran through here. After I chased him down, I found myself with a lovely pile of 2” strips from a sheet I was repurposing. A stack of the strips were joined end to end and then I used a supersized crochet hook to start crocheting a rug. I planned this to be my handwork for a couple of days until I can see enough to keep working on my other To Do Projects.
So here I sit, crochet hook in my lap while I finish this post. What are you working on this week? 😎 Carol
