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.
It's been pretty productive around here lately. From this.... To a completed Doo Wop shawl. Then from this...
One more day before the end of the year and I was hoping to get just one more quilt finished for 2017. I got this pattern from a b...
Since I am sitting here recovering from surgery, I made sure I had some hand projects to keep me busy for a week or so. The first on...
This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
