I have to say that I am getting my UFO or unfinished projects wrapped up. I have several other WIPs or those works in progress going. And I have a drawer full of orphaned blocks that were made as test patters that will find a quilt to land in someday but for today here are a couple of finishes. I did my May block for Pat Sloan’s Mystery Quilt Secret Garden. LOVE the large 16 inch blocks.
I finished my granny square afghan. I started this in the fall. I needed a yarn project. I love the Lion Brand bon bons and so I bought some, made squares. I set them in white and now I have a sofa blanket. I haven’t crocheted in a while and sometime it is nice to see if you can remember. I have nearly finished a knit table runner and I am also working on a tatted edging just to make sure the rust is knocked off. And believe it or not, my fingers have let me play violin too. I am trying to stick it to osteoarthritis.
Here is my mini quilt. I designed the pattern and this is a test idea for a lay out. I love quilting mini quilts for long arm practice. I experimented with a few new stitches and wanted some intense pebbling practice. I like the overall quilt and a larger version is warranted. I also have a couple of other layouts in mind with this block. Never enough hours in the day.
We are in a cool spring here. My fairy gardens are cold and frosty. I need to weed them as the weather warms up. Had a bit of snow last weekend. I realized today that I have let my filing and papers get all messy again. I will have to file them , which is not my favorite thing. And I get to work in about three offices or more again which makes work life stressful for me but I want to do my part to be sure we have all places staffed and covered. I can’t say that I get bored.
Zentangle group is tonight. It is small usually three of us. I keep hoping it will grow to a larger group. I am not sure if it was during the day if it would have more people. I guess only retired people join groups in this town I am told. Hahaha, or mom’s who have an empty nest and isn’t afraid to drive at night like me. I am not giving up on it. I am going to start making some phone calls and invite people again. Any ideas?
