Weekly Update


I did some more work on Around the Town by Dawna Baker.

I finished sewing another piece onto the backing for Batik Cascade (Batik Go-Round) by Karen Combs.

I need to press the seams, trim part of the lightest piece off, and then sew a couple of strips along the edge to make it the right size.


I finished that square on the Blackwork Chessboard by Anne MacGregor and then did a blank square and some of the border.


You'll notice that I didn't do the running stitches in the blank square. I've decided that when I finish this as a mini-quilt, I'll do functional quilting stitches with the pearl cotton rather than decorative running stitches.

Cross Stitch:

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

I also finished the squares on the 3rd panel, sewed them together, and made a good start on the "trellis" portion of the panel.


I finished the embroidery on the 2nd side panel of the Octopus Garden Blanket by Georgia Vincent and wove in all the ends. Then I started knitting the 1st end panel.


I sewed the first binding strip onto Tech Support, a design by Linda Connors of Calico Crossroads®, adapted from the artwork of Kathleen Kelly of Kats by Kelly™.


Finally, here's what I got done on the Tiny Stocking ornament designed by Jorja Hernandez before I put it away.
