I am also working on a lace cowl for my daughter. It's about half done. She knows I'm working on it. It's not for Christmas but I wanted to use up the nice yarn I had left over from the lace scarf. I will post a picture of it when it's done. It's not much to look at right now. However, I did block my scarf and would like to share the result!
I think you can see the pattern much better. It's not quite as wrinkled looking. This next photo is even better!
As far as quilting goes, I have a few things going on there also. I always have my hand sewn hexagons although I haven't worked on them lately. I am making the Blogger's block of the month but that only takes up a day or 2 at the most. I am working on a mystery quilt with my guild. That took up a lot of my time this month! We only get directions monthly but they can take awhile.
Just 100 half square triangles this month! I just have to square them up a bit and then I can wait until next meeting which is in 2 weeks!
I have a quilt to machine quilt. It's all pinned and ready to go but I need a little time I can devote to it. I'm not sure I should even start that before Christmas. Machine quilting is always a big project to me.
And then, finally, I would like to make a Christmas wall hanging. I found one that I hope is sort of quick. I just need a day or two. I always need the time above all else. I have plenty of fabric, thread, etc. I just need to be able to sit down and get to it. Too bad I have to work, clean, cook and all that other fun stuff. I think I can do it and I'm going to give it a try!! Anyone else out there need to clone themselves this holiday season? Suggestions?
