Baby Babbles, Blackwork Chessboard, Old Mill Pond, Potholder, Joy of Computer Work, Bright Feathers, Hand Towel, Plum Granny Ripple


I did some more quilting on the Blackwork Chessboard by Anne MacGregor.

I didn't do any work on my other finishing projects this week.


I did some more work on the 4th block of Old Mill Pond by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts.

I also started blind stitching the binding strip to my potholder.

Cross Stitch:

I did some more stitching on Joy of Computer Work which is based on artwork by Randal Spangler and adapted to cross stitch by Michele Sayetta* of Heaven and Earth Designs. I didn't do any work on cleaning up the text this week.

*I do not endorse this designer's products.

I also did some more work on my Bright Feathers design.


I did some more knitting on my hand towel.

Swedish Weaving:

I did some more stitching on the towel based on Baby Babbles from Learn to Make Monk’s Cloth Afghans by Marilyn T. Magly.


Finally, I started a new crochet project to work on during the summer until it's cool enough that I can work on my step afghan again. It's Plum Granny Ripple by Janie Herrin. It's working up a lot faster than I anticipated; I only got the yarn last Friday, and by Wednesday I had nearly finished 3 of the 5 large squares that make up the center of the afghan. However, I'm using a cotton yarn, so hopefully it won't be too warm to have in my lap when it gets big.
