Weekly Update


I finally got some real work done on Churn Dash, the January installment of the Block of the Month series by Deanne Eisenman of Snuggles Quilts.

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

I finished piecing the backing for Batik Cascade (Batik Go-Round) by Karen Combs.


I'm still working on the same square on the Blackwork Chessboard by Anne MacGregor.

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... eventually. I think I've done more frogging this month than I normally do in a year. When I sat down with this I discovered that I had made a mistake in the last row I had been working on, so I had to rip it out and redo it.


The Morning Glory afghan designed by Michele Maks is another one that I had to frog this week. I finished the grey section of the third panel, did the first 4 rows of the next green section, then discovered that I was on the wrong side of the fabric. I thought I had turned when the directions said "do not turn", so I frogged the green section and tried again. After 3 rows I realized that I was still on the wrong side, so I took a close look at my work and discovered that I had miscounted the rows in the grey section. So, I frogged the green section again, did another grey row, then started the green again. This time I think I've got it right.


I did some more embroidery on the 1st end panel of the Octopus Garden Blanket by Georgia Vincent.


Finally, I got the 2nd binding strip completely sewn onto Tech Support, a design by Linda Connors of Calico Crossroads®, adapted from the artwork of Kathleen Kelly of Kats by Kelly™, and I trimmed the excess backing & batting.
