Here is my design wall today. The only owls up there are the last ones that need to be appliqued: they are there to remind me to get them done this month. The BOM of the week is the Alphabet BOM.
They are being nicer this month and there are only two blocks this month. Here is a picture of the pieced part of the blocks, which I have not yet started.
I did get the letters drawn and fused to the fabric, ready to applique when the pieces parts are completed.
My plan is to get these blocks done this week and then do some more sewing on Celtic Solstice. I realized, Sunday, that I can’t remember what I was doing so I also get to spend some time rereading the pattern parts.
I have been doing some knitting and got the foot and heels done on both. I am always amazed at how easy these heels are to do, and quick. So now all I have left is the ribbing which I do rather short. Now I do have to tell on myself, when I started the heels on these socks, for some reason I did the heels on different sides. It was a little confusing but worked out in the end.
I think this week I am going to spend some time reading through the sweater pattern I got and then maybe even cast on the beginning stitches. I have been procrastinating starting this because I am not sure I am ready for something so big. But I can’t just knit socks forever.
The last thing I worked on was to begin quilting my mug rugs. I started with the background but still have the figure to do. Everything is set up so I can do a little quilting whenever I get tired of what ever else I am doing.
Our weekend ended very nicely. Our granddaughter, her husband and son came from NC for a very short business trip and we were able to visit with them over breakfast Sunday morning. She only recently moved to NC (husband is in the Marines) where she has encountered winter like she never had in AL. It was fun to see how well they all were doing and to help send them on their way back to their new home.
And now lets get on with all the projects we have planned for this week. I am also including some Spring Cleaning and am planning to put together several bags of clothes and other stuff for Goodwill/Salvation Army. I love stuff but find I am living in a world of clutter, both in the house and the studio. So I am going to work, little by little, on clearing out some of it.
Have a great week, folks, I know I will. Gari
