This week I have had quiet mornings without sewing. I have been working on hand work projects. I have been finishing up my yarn projects. It is really slow, I have forgotten how time consuming they can be. I have made some progress worth a picture and report.
Here is my Bon Bon granny squares with white yarn borders and I am joining them together. If I need to make it a little bigger I have the yarn to make more squares. It is going to be 6×7 currently. It isn’t really large but will look good in my living room on the back of my sofa. The goal was not to be of any size and I decided the squares are too big for a scarf.
This is cotton yarn from my monthly yarn club. It is going to be an oversized hand towel like a bar towel for my kitchen. It is more yellows in it than the pic shows. I like the honey comb pattern. This monthly club is with a local yarn shop and she has patterns included so it forces me to push my knitting skills because I don’t have lots of confidence in making up patterns as I go in knitting.
The progress on my tatted edging. I bought this hand towel fabric and plan to sew it on this. My serger is fresh out of the shop so I want to serge the edges where it was but off the bolt.
I have lots of ideas for non quilting this to make this summer to change things up a little. Here is my ideas of sewing/serger: baby washcloths for new grandbaby on the way, pillowcase dresses x2, possible shorts x2
I was looking at my WIP table in my sewing room. I have a couple going:
50th birthday block Emeralds. I will take a while and purchase 50 different greens through out the year to celebrate my birthday.
Tula Pink City Sampler
Birds in the Air block exchange
Monthly Ello block swap
And I have several quilt tops worth of orphan block languishing in my drawer
plus I have several months of my yarn club kits to knit this summer at highland games
I want to learn to use my serger more and make a t shirt
I have a few irons in the fire to balance my life out !!
