I feel that nothing is getting completed, but I am still moving forward on a few projects and that is a good thing.
I finally got my "Caramel" sweater off the needles.
I procrastinated on the sleeves, but they really weren't that bad once I got myself in the mode to finish this sweater. It's a blanket wrap cardigan; and it's probably too warm to wear right now, but I hope it will be ready for the cold weather in a few months.
Yes....it is not complete until I weave in all the loose threads and then block it. When I say there are loose threads to weave in.....well....here's a picture of most of what needs to be done yet.
Ugh...I am not looking forward to doing this.
On the sewing front, I had been working very slowly on my plus quilt. I came across a "quilt along" on Instagram for just this quilt. I joined a little late, but it has given me the incentive to make a push on this quilt rather than make it one of those "long-term" quilts.
So, I have all 57 large pluses made.
I laid them out in color order to see that I had an equal amount of each colorway.
Now I need to get busy on the 99 small pluses that this quilt requires. I have some made, but not anywhere near what I need, but all my backgrounds are cut out and there are several colored pluses cut to get me going. That's the biggest thing...cutting out; so I think those 99 will come along quite nicely.
Also, I have the cutest knitting project bag cut out and ready to go except that I need a zipper; so that project will have to wait until my next post for its reveal. I am excited about this one. Like I said, it is so darn cute.
Well, that's it for now. Keep on quilting, knitting or whatever you are doing. Progress is progress and the goal is to get something finished in the end.
