Weekly Update

And now back to our regularly scheduled stitching. :)


I've decided that from now on I'm going to have one quilt project in the piecing stage and one in the quilting/finishing stage, plus any sew-alongs.

No sew-alongs this week. Pam Buda doesn't plan to post her next one until January, and Deanne Eisenman only just posted hers today.

For my piecing project I picked up Around the Town by Dawna Baker again.

For my quilting/finishing project I started piecing the backing for Batik Cascade (Batik Go-Round) by Karen Combs. The fabric I used in this project can't be ordered by the yard, so I had to order a set of 1/2-yard cuts which I'm piecing together.


I finished one square and started the next on the Blackwork Chessboard by Anne MacGregor.

Cross Stitch:

I did some work on Fish City which is adapted from artwork by Stewart Moskowitz.

Swedish Weaving:

I made a little progress on the Feathers To and Fro afghan from Learn to Make Monk’s Cloth Afghans by Marilyn T. Magly.


I did some more embroidery on the 2nd panel of the Morning Glory afghan designed by Michele Maks.

Also, I have now crocheted 9 squares for the 3rd panel, and have almost finished a 10th.


I wove in some more ends on the center panel of the Octopus Garden Blanket by Georgia Vincent.


On Tech Support, a design by Linda Connors of Calico Crossroads®, adapted from the artwork of Kathleen Kelly of Kats by Kelly™, I pieced the backing (more small cuts of fabric) and basted the layers together.


Finally, during the month of December I'm going to work on Christmas-themed UFOs, starting with In The Bag, a Mini-Kats™ design by Linda Connors of Calico Crossroads®, adapted from the artwork of Kathleen Kelly of Kats by Kelly™.

Here's what I had already done on it:

And here's what I got done this week:
