Thanks for all your kind words on the shawl that Rachel and Rue knit. Every time I see it hanging with my wedding dress, I get excited!
The wedding is just around the corner, and I've been crossing things off the list pretty steadily. I also opted to eliminate a few tasks I'd set for myself. I knew trying to get everything done would make me crazy, and I'd really like to avoid that.
Forty napkins are completely finished. The rest of them are made, but need to be washed and have labels sewn on.
I managed to finish my April Wonky Bee blocks this weekend, for Jessica. She's working on a quilt-as-you-go log cabin quilt, and sent along scraps to use. I added a few pieces, and really enjoyed making these.
A log cabin is always happy-making.
I supplemented the fabric I was given with solids and the DS print on the back. I really think it turned out great, and I was happy I was able to finish in time for our first donation date.
So, I've also been working on two non-obligatory projects.
Gray Plum, a new knitting project, from Veera Valimaki's Summer Plum. I'm knitting this KnitPicks Palette and I love it so far! I plan to take this for honeymoon knitting. Veera is also the designer of Stripe Study.
My other fun WIP is a project with one of my favorite lines, Echo.
About a month ago, I had this:
After this weekend, I have a mini quilt top:
. I assembled the back, too, and I love it as much as the front!
I'm awful about measuring quilts, but I'm going to try to remember to do that from now on. I used several other scraps to supplement/compliment the Echo. This one probably won't get done until after the wedding, but it's been a nice distraction!
I also obviously won't be sharing a finished Swoon anytime soon (hey, that rhymed!).
I expect to post pretty sporadically over the next couple of weeks, but I look forward to sharing wedding photos with you very soon!
