A Little Handwork
Other than machine quilting, I seem to be doing a lot of handwork. It's nice and relaxing to sit on the couch and not feel guilty! This is the clamshell block I'm making for Green Tea and Sweet Beans. This block looks deceptively easy. The clamshells like to wiggle around even though I feel the piece is pinned and taped as much as it can be. It takes a little while to get the hang of it. I just have 3 rows left!
I started a new shawl. It's called Cinder and designed by Jen Lucas. I'm knitting the easy part, the lace area starts up later on!
My two projects are coming together nicely. I'm thoroughly enjoying the relaxation and calming effect.
