Weekly Update


I did some work on Orphans & Scraps, a sew-along by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts.

I started pinning together the last seam of the center block of Around the Town by Dawna Baker.

I did some more quilting on Batik Cascade (Batik Go-Round) by Karen Combs.

I didn't get to Combination Star, the February installment of the Block of the Month series by Deanne Eisenman of Snuggles Quilts.  She's posted the final step, but I didn't care for either of her settings so I'm going to finish this last block and then put these blocks in the UFO pile for now.


I finished a blank square and then started another 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 some more progress on the Feathers To and Fro afghan from Learn to Make Monk’s Cloth Afghans by Marilyn T. Magly.


I crocheted 4 more squares for the 4th panel of the Morning Glory afghan designed by Michele Maks and almost finished a 5th. I also wove in the ends on 7 of them.


I joined the first end panel of the Octopus Garden Blanket by Georgia Vincent to the center panel.


Finally, I got half of the 3rd binding strip sewn down to the back of Tech Support, a design by Linda Connors of Calico Crossroads®, adapted from the artwork of Kathleen Kelly of Kats by Kelly™.


  1. Gracious! You are just the queen of crafting!

  2. Lol, hardly, I just get bored easily! ;)


Sorry about the captcha, folks, but when I turned it off I got a ton of spam. Also, all comments are moderated to prevent any internet nastiness. However, I'd love to hear from nice people who don't have anything to sell. :)
