Weekly Update

There's been yet another change of pace around here...

One of the bloggers I follow has been sewing for a least 15 minutes each day and accomplishing quite a lot. This gave me an idea: I'm going to try spending at least 30 minutes every week on each type of needlework that I do, work on my sew-alongs enough to keep up to date with them, and spend the rest of my stitching time on whichever project has caught my fancy at the moment. We'll see how this works.


Deanne Eisenman of Snuggles Quilts has posted the September installment of her Block of the Month series, Whirlwind. I've cut out all the pieces and made a start on sewing them together.


I've been concentrating on the Blackwork Chessboard by Anne MacGregor this week.



Cross Stitch:

I did a bit on Elements of Nature I, which is adapted from the artwork of Jennifer Pugh.

Swedish Weaving:

I got some more work done on the Feathers To and Fro afghan from Learn to Make Monk’s Cloth Afghans by Marilyn T. Magly.


So far on the Morning Glory afghan designed by Michele Maks, I have the 1st panel completely done. I still need to embroider the 2nd panel and crochet and attach the applique flowers. This week I crocheted one of the flowers and finished up a square for the 3rd panel.

So, as of this week I have 6 of the 7 blue flowers for the 2nd panel, 6 of the 6 purple flowers for the 2nd panel, 1 of the 26 leaves for the 2nd panel, and 2 of the squares for the 3rd panel.


I started making a mini quilt out of Tech Support, a design by Linda Connors of Calico Crossroads®, adapted from the artwork of Kathleen Kelly of Kats by Kelly™. I washed the design, ironed it, and trimmed the excess fabric. Then I cut out the borders.


Finally, I got a little more embroidery done on the central panel of the Octopus Garden Blanket by Georgia Vincent.
