Stitches of All Kinds

done-way bigAnd finally it is done.  Here is my summer sweater, finished. I love how it looks. 

washclothsI am currently knitting washcloths while I read and reread the new sweater pattern.  I want to be sure I completely understand it before I begin another large knitting project.  I have also been looking at a new sock pattern and that may take precedence. 

owls a readyMeanwhile I have prepped the last four owls of the owl BOM.  This weekend I will be getting out all of the fabrics that I may use for them and begin the hunt.  It always takes me a long time to get just the right combination for each owl so I may not get them all done in one week, but I will be really glad to see these blocks come together.

opqr readyAnd while I was at it I prepped the June blocks for the Alphabet BOM.  I am way behind with this one but once the owls are done I plan to get busy catching up with this one.

rows sewnI also got the rows sewn on this baby quilt.  They will be sew together tomorrow and then it will be time to put borders on.  I think I would like to put a blue minkie on the back but, oh my, that means a trip to the fabric store.  Oh, well, it’s just a little sacrifice.

PDF tools And now, as promised, how I put check marks on my owls picture.  On the PDF page there is a section to the right called “Tools.”  If you click on the word “sign” you get this page.  Click on the T and you can add text.  Click on the checkmark and you can add a checkmark.  You must click for each checkmark.  These are the only tools I have tried so I can’t say anything about the last two.  I think all of these tools have been added on the recent updates.

As you can see I have quite an agenda for next week, and maybe the week after, but I am really excited to see these things getting done.  Especially since I have a couple of new projects I would like to add.  Send a kiss

So lets all have a great weekend and get a lot of creating done.   Gari
