I am having a hard time believing that it is April next week... Do you feel the same way?
Time just seems like it is flying by this year.
I thought I'd take the opportunity to do my monthly recap now since its the weekend (Yay!) and I don't have any FOs to share just yet. So... the crafty input/output resolution... it seems that I am not making strides in the right direction. Am I surprised? Umm, truthfully no, not really. The upside is that I have some lovely goodies to share with you on the blog :) Ha ha yes, what an excuse!
So here's the walk of shame:
On the output front I have a sock:
It needs a friend. But one is better than none :)
I've been travelling for the last 2 weeks for my work, and all this time on planes has given me the opportunity to get some knitting done. I've made a start on the second sock, so hopefully I'll have a completed pair to share soon.
I've had a hankering for some handspun sock yarn for a while now, and I'm really enjoying working with this Crown Mountain handspun yarn and seeing the color changes in the yarn. It may come as no surprise that I acquired some more:
And then the monthly installment from Skein came in. Its a lovely color, and I was sorely tempted to retain the subscription, but ultimately saw sense and cancelled my subscription. Baby steps in the right direction.
Ooh, I did finish another square for the Bertie's (hospice) Blankets. Thinking I may lay the blanket squares out this weekend. It's pretty close to completion, thanks to all the kind folks that donated squares.
I made a couple of squares for another one of the gals at quilt guild. Love the colors in this - bring on Spring!
There was the infinity scarf from my last post. But I also picked up some more fabric for the Local Quilt, which I'm eager to try my hand at.
I almost forgot, I also made a 'huggie' for my cross stitch frame. It helps keep the edges of the cross stitch linen protected. And it's plain old cute since it goes with the 'Once Upon a Time' theme of the cross stitch. :)
I have the perfect project bag for this cross stitch project. This bag has tremendous sentimental value: After my Grandma passed away last year my Mum was packing her things away and found this hand quilted bag that Grandma had made. Mum knew that I would love it. My Grandma was a wonderful lady who I miss dearly. It makes me so happy that I have something that she made.
3. Cross Stitch:
I finished the first in the 'Frosty Forest' Series: Raccoon Cabin. So cute!
I've started the 2nd square in this series, but I'm also itching to get started on the Once Upon a Time sampler - I am 3 months' behind. Yikes!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
