Two Finishes in One Week...

One Small Bite of the Elephant

At last the holidays are behind us and I can sew again.  Started by cutting out three blocks for MaryLynn …  Each guild member makes a block for the outgoing president.  She selects the pattern and we make the blocks...  I should have finished them months ago, at least they are now cut out.



One of this years projects is the shawl I am making for my sister.....  I got the yarn at Dances With Wool the last time I went to Richmond....  I now have 142 stitches.  I need to knit to 200 stitches and the increase is one stitch at the end of every other row...  Still a few stitches to go...



Close up still doesn't show the pattern....  Blocking makes all the difference...


Trying to find a quilt for the BOM at the guild.  Came across Mystery Quilts Anonymous on Facebook...  This looked and since I might actually finish something this year I thought I would start something else that just looked quick and easy...LOL...

Done and Begun


Class mates from high school...  We have lunch together every week.  They came to my house before Christmas... ( I am bottom right)



One finish for the start of the year..  Now to get them packaged and in the mail.



One begun.  I ordered a set of the Addi Flex Needles and of course I needed to try them...  If you are a sock knitter you might enjoy them...  I really like them and now will have to collect a few more sizes.

String a Long...

Lori at Humble Quilts is offering a string quilt challenge in 2019...

The question is just how long can I actually follow through on this project...

Time will tell.

 This is the quilt I found on Pinterist…  Looks like it will be a fun project.  I mean really, just how hard could it be?



I decided on six inch blocks..  The blocks will be Six inch blocks = twelve a month = three a week... Months with five weeks allows for a catch up week...

The finished quilt will be 60x72.  Borders could be added...  Time will tell...
