Blackwork Chessboard, Orphans & Scraps, Bright Feathers, Old Mill Pond, Potholder, Da Capo, Baby Babbles, Hand Towel, Serenity, Plum Granny Ripple


I finished quilting the squares on the Blackwork Chessboard by Anne MacGregor and started the in-the-ditch quilting just inside the border.


I finished assembling the 2nd row of Old Mill Pond by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts.

I finished pinning the binding strip to my potholder and started sewing it in place.

I also did some more quilting on Orphans & Scraps, a sew-along by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts (blocks by Pam; setting by me).

Cross Stitch:

I pulled out Serenity by Joan Elliott and did some stitching on it.

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


I finished knitting my hand towel. Now I just have to weave in the ends and block it. I think I'll try seed stitch next time and see if that will lie flat enough that I can skip the blocking step.

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.


I did some more stitching on Da Capo by Elizabeth Almond.


Finally, I finished all of the granny squares on Plum Granny Ripple by Janie Herrin and started on the ripple.


  1. I read your post on Heartspun Quilts. So I decided to check out your blog. You do beautiful work.
