Motivation....where are you?
I have been so NOT motivated to quilt lately.
Don't know why, but it could be because my mom has been so sick, or the fact that it's Fall and the knitting needles keep calling my name, or just the fact that the warm weather has gone away.
The latest knit project I have been working on is a shawl. Remember this cotton yarn (looks more like floss)?
Well, this is where I am with that right now.
This is the shawl that I bought the shawl pin for.
Can't wait to use it.
Also, I had two more commitments with my birthday star block exchange.
Got Joanne's made for November. She requested black and white with a black or white background.
Here is Ellen's for December. She requested light to medium greens with cream. I am not so sure the picture shows the true colors, but the block is a very pretty, soft green. I hope they both like their blocks.
I think my goal is to finish the shawl and then I will get back into the sewing room and get busy on some of my Cherry Tree blocks. I am so close to the end of this 29 month BOM, I can't poop out now. Motivation will come back...I am sure.
