What did you do over the weekend?

September 6, 2010 § 8 Comments

Between going to the fair (I LOVE going to the fair) and working, I did a little of this… and a little of that…

Binding

A little sewing on the binding of the Wild Geese quilt.  Still a bit more to go.

Liberated Wedding Ring blocks

A few more string blocks for a total of 11. Once I get started, it’s hard to stop.  It’s tempting to do a bunch all at once!

Pinwheel BOM

A few more pinwheel blocks in a new pattern that I’m working on.  A block-of-the-month.  I’m pondering what color to put around the center block. More blue? Or more pink?

Crochet

And, in the evenings a little crochet.  This has been a challenge for me.   A couple of weeks ago, Linda and I took a crochet class because we only know how to make granny squares.  This sweater is from the book Rowan Summer Crochet and the British terminology is completely different than the American.  I think I’ve got it now, but it took me 4 swatches before I really “got” it.  Finally, I’m working the actual sweater.

What have you been doing over the weekend?

    And I thought I did a lot over the weekend! Did you sleep this weekend? I love your liberated wedding ring block. Sooo tempted but I must keep my blinkers on and not start before I have finished some previous “must do”s. I’ll be watching

    Your crocheting is absolutely beautiful! I would never guess that you hadn’t been crocheting like that for years. 🙂

    Personally, I’ve been working on my nursery this weekend. Spent Saturday reorganizing, and spent last evening making a changing pad. (http://kelseyprantis.blogspot.com/2010/09/baby-changing-pad.html)

    Today I’m working on a canopy to go on the wall behind the crib. I’m a little terrified of working with the organza I purchased for it….

    Down to just a couple of nursery projects left. 🙂

    I vote for the blue paisley to go around the center block of your BOM.
    I’m considering making some of the string blocks to use up strips, looks fun.

    Anita – I like the look of your blog (I usually read via Reader unless I want to drop a comment).

    The crochet pattern looks so much like tatting – which am currently enjoying in between my quilting time.

    I would prefer the blue, the parsley are beautiful! Another fabulous pattern. Will you sell it in the futur?

    OK, late to the party, have you made a decision on the BOM? I was wondering about YELLOW around the center? I see sparkly bits of yellow in the prints. This may be too much, but I was thinking about the Kaffe’s yellow spots or gold spots. Might be too many spots. Anyhoo, just a ka-thunk I had. I really love it — so fresh and pretty!

    Anita, your BOM quilt is gorgeous! The Kaffe setting blocks are so beautiful and so perfect! Looking forward to see your choice for t center 🙂
