I've joined Meredith of Olivia Jane Handcrafted, Jessica of A Little Gray and Debbie of Esch House Quilts for this project.
Starting next week, we will each be sharing one tutorial a week for crafty holiday fun!
Also, I've been handsewing this morning. For do.Good Stitches this month, we are making hexagons using English paper-piecing.
I managed to finish my first of two hexagons. I LOVE these fabrics together! I used Lace in Mud from the Moda line Urban Cowgirl and Birch in Pink from Habitat.
I hope to start basting my second set of diamonds this week.
Goal #2 for the week is to finish another character on my current cross-stitch project.
I've also been hard at work in a major scrap organization. Since I previously just tossed all my scraps into one large bin, it was difficult to find particular scraps. I'm sorting them into similar shapes now. Long strips, shorter strips, charm squares, etc. And I have a plan for the shorter strips that I plan to start this week! I'll share more about that soon.
And look! Knitting! I cast on for the Orchid Thief Shawl, by Ysolda last week. Ysolda is hosting a KAL on ravelry to knit this shawl by November 15th.
I was well on my way, but if you notice, the center yarn overs (small open circles) are trailing to the left. I made a mistake several rows ago, and well, I just know it will bug me. So, I'm planning to frog and restart today.
Hopefully, I'll be able to keep that line straight the second time around! I do love the color, and am enjoying the yarn.
Geez, I'm wordy today. That's all I got. Have a great Monday, friends!
