I ended up sewing my finger last week and was a little terrified of my sewing machine for a few days. My finger is fine now. I think the tetanus shot hurt worse! I'm one of those people who reads every single side effect on the sheet that comes with vaccinations and I come down with the symptoms as I read them. I'm terrible! I'm going to try to keep my finger away from the needle from now on!
Anyway, progress! I finally have some! Last time I had an update on these projects was February 27. I finally got some forward momentum going after a very slow month.
- X's and O's Quilt from Olive Tree Designs (Using Bonnie & Camille's Ruby) - About 30% done with this top. I was totally regretting doing a quilt composed completely of HSTs after the first row, but around row two I finally got consistent with my points. I love the negative space on this top!
- Diamond Lace Shawl from Learn New Stitches on Circle Looms by Ann Bipes - I'm loving the striping in this yarn! I seriously have 5 inches left on this shawl, so I should be done by now. I don't watch as much TV when the husband isn't home, so I haven't sat down to finish it. This project inspired me to break way from the loom and learn how to knit for real, so I signed up for the Craftsy Knit Lab course. I hope I come out of the course with something wearable. I'll let y'all know!
- Charming Flowers Quilt from Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts by Pam Lintott (Using Etchings By 3 Sisters) - About 70% done. I made a few minor changes and I like how it is turning out. While I thought I was good and read the directions on this one, I actually just glanced at the page and assumed I knew what was going on. Guess what! I didn't! I ended up having to get some extra supplies and having a bunch of leftover triangles. Lesson learned: It is important to read the introduction and the instructions (and the supply list)! There's some good information in there!
Sew.Happy.Quilt QAL (Needs to Be Quilted) | Charlotte (Needs to Be Quilted)| Crimson Cross (Needs to Be Quilted) | NY Beauty (SO BEHIND ON THIS ONE) | FPFTT (One Block Left) | Home Ec Course | Jewelry Roll | Tote and PillowI'm racking up quite the collection of unfinished quilt tops! I have all the supplies, so I expect to have the first two complete this month. I'm tired of walking around them, so that should be motivation enough! I'm not ready for the big one yet!
