This has been a bit of an odd week for me
here in my Hidey Hole.
I can't seem to settle on doing one thing for very long.
I have several different little projects to show today.
Last year I appliqued some wool baskets and flowers
on 5" squares and wasn't sure what I would end up doing
Here they are without the embroidered stems.
Throughout the year I have been making Friendship Blocks
with these little basket blocks.
My thoughts were that this would be a
large Christmas quilt with the reds and greens.
As you can see, I have four more Friendship blocks to make.
The larger this quilt becomes,
the more I am inclined to make three smaller quilts with four blocks in each one.
I have to add the outside sashing strips and then will decide what to do.
Another applique block is finished for my new project.
At first I wasn't sure about the fabrics I picked for this block,
but now that it's finished....
I love it!
(The little circles gave me fits this time for some reason.)
I have one more block prepped and ready to stitch.
On the knitting front,
I made a Fingerless mitt
using this pattern.
My sister-in-law gave me some alpaca yarn
and, boy, is this yarn soft!
It's heavier yarn than what I am used to working with,
but it knits up so quickly!
I decided I didn't want the buttons that the pattern called for
and just stitched the cuff ends together.
The second mitt should be finished in the next day or so,
but I don't want to have to wear these for a LOOOONNNNGGGG time!
I'm linking to Whoop Whoop and Patchwork Times,
so go see what others are creating.
