Weekend Progress

After a seriously busy weekend, I am feeling pretty accomplished. Although, at the same time, I feel totally behind. There's a lot of changes going on, and I can barely catch my breath.
But let's not focus on that. As an eternal optimist, I'll just show you the happy progress I've made.

It's happeningFirst off, wedding invitations are in the mail! I ordered these from Ruby Press on etsy. Her shop is closed for updates right now, but I highly recommend her shop. Ruby was responsive and helpful during the proof process, and worked with us to get the invitations just right.

WIPs: Napkins

In other wedding news, I (and now my mom is helping!) am making napkins for each guest. This is the first batch. I'm really happy with how they're turning out, and I'm excited to be using some stashed fabrics.

BAMS March Blocks

I also finished two of my March bee blocks. These blocks are my first for the Bee a Modern Swapper group. We used a Freshly Pieced tutorial for Mosaic Blocks. This color combination is definitely popular right now. My group for do.Good Stitches is using a similar palette this month.

WIP: HMQG Charity Quilt

The Houston Modern Quilt Guild is making charity quilts this month using (mostly) fabric donations. I finished quilting this over the weekend, and just need to apply binding. We expect to finish at least twenty quilts before April.

Sometime around Christmas, Rachel and I were chatting about dishcloths, and she was shocked when I said I'd never knitted a dishcloth. I guess I skipped that step when I was learning to knit. So I ought some Knit Picks Dishie, and got down to business.

WIPs: Ballband Washcloth

I'm using the tried and true Mason-Dixon Ballband pattern. Just a few rows here and there, mostly at night when I'm winding down, but I'll have a finished washcloth soon!

Linking up with Megan!

  6. Wow! Letterpress invites - I love yours! So cute - sadly I think they're a bit out of our budget - I'm guessing that you're having a smallish wedding? Love the fact that you're making each guest napkins. Haha, if I started now MAYBE I could do that (we're looking to have 125-150 people). When's the big day?

  8. Wow, that's a LOT for one weekend! I think it's so cool that your guild is doing charity quilts. And, HOLY WASHCLOTH. That's going to be a beauty. There's a crochet pattern a bit like that that I've always wanted to try. Gosh I haven't crocheted in forever.
