End of Year Projects
It's the end of the year and I'm trying to get a few forgotten projects on track again. The Farmer's Wife 1930's Sew Along is on holiday break. That gives me so much more free time to pursue my own projects. I started this project awhile ago to gain some control over my fabric scraps left over from other projects. I've made a few more blocks this past week.
I decided just working on one or two blocks at a time takes too long. I've started to cut the fabric for a bunch of blocks for awhile and then speed sewing them at the machine! As you can see, I have 4 blocks ready to be sewn. I think I'm going to cut out more before I piece them together. It's easy to do after work as well. I need 49 blocks to complete this quilt.
My Christmas knitting has been over for weeks. I had nothing to do with my hands while watching television. I just started making a shawlette from the book, Free-Spirit Shawls by Lisa Shroyer. I'm using Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk Paints which is a purple/grey combination. It's so soft to touch! I really love it.
Here's the picture of the shawlette I'm working on. I love the feminine look of it.
There you have my end of year projects. I'll be working the next few days including New Year's Day. Not sure how my project I'll be making. I'll let you know!!
