Here it is Wednesday again and I am so excited to share a few of my WIP’s! I have been super busy, but have been creating a lot!
The cooler weather has meant that I have been outside preparing the flower beds and the yard for the winter. We have been pulling up annuals, laying mulch and soon we will lay grass seed. Here in Virginia, our yard always looks green, no matter what the weather. Don’t let that fool you though – most of it is weeds! I am hoping for real grass this summer.
Knitting has be placed towards the back of the “to do” list. I still pull my shawl out every once and a while and enjoy the quiet times knitting and purling. With Christmas around the corner, I will be working on gifts for others instead of items for myself.
I have started my daughters afghan. I am a bit nervous about making it since I have never made Chevrons before. I am hoping for the best. I have a great friend, Susan, who is talking me through the process! She is wonderful at crochet and I may need her help a lot with this project!
All I have to show as far as the afghan is concerned is what will be ending up in the trash! I have decided that watching “Scandal” and working with a project that requires counting is not a good idea!
My Halloween Lace Skulls are coming along wonderfully. My daughter and I decided we would go with green, purple, black and orange. We each will have three of all four of the colors. I think they will make a wonderful garland. I have completed all of the purple and orange and now am working on the green. Only 1 more green to go!
The Place in The Sun quilt is coming along well also. I have placed it towards the back of the “to do” list also. I am happy with the progress of this quilt, but I must confess that I don’t think I will ever make another one. The instructions are confusing and I feel there is a lot of waste.
The Welcome Home quilt is nearing completion! Well, completion of the top anyway! I finished month 5 and next I will work on the center piece of the quilt. After that comes the borders and then the quilting. I will use my embroidery machine for the quilting. It will be my first time to try using my embroidery machine for quilting – wish me luck!
I am not super fond of making “flying geese,” but I must say, I thought this batch came out pretty good.
I hope you have a wonderful week! Leave me a link of your WIP projects in the comments and I will be by to see what you have been working on!
