Last week I managed to get my TGIFF post up...and that's about it.
I had hoped to finish the Brick Wall quilt; but had to redo a several rows once I realized I had made a couple of bricks too short and a few more too long. Talk about being annoyed. They're fixed now and I'm just waiting on feedback from the person I'm making it for before I baste and start quilting.
I'd also hoped to get my March do. Good Stitches blocks completed for Cheer Circle; but nope. Oh well, there's always this week, right? Right.
I still don't have many images I can share of all the quilts I'm working on. I can, however, share this shot of the lovely palette I'll be using for my upcoming January quilt blocks.
This palette is similar to the one I used for the 5 point Lone Star variation. The most obvious differences are that this palette has fewer neutrals and, while still heavy on the aqua/turquoise/teal, the addition of some truer blues.
I've also recently purchased some cross stitch supplies, including these yummy DC floss shades and adorable little box for my needles.
I'll be using these pretty colors when I stitch up this Pisces pattern from Satsuma Street. My hope is to finish all twelve signs at some point. Wish me luck...I tend to get sidetracked by other projects when I'm cross stitching. However, I have three trips scheduled between May and August; all at least nine hours in each direction, and two with lots of down time. Since I don't like to knit in the hotter months, I'm hoping I'll be able to make a dent in at least a couple of the signs.
This week's list:
Linking up with Christine
Hello, and welcome to TGIFF!
This week I'm sharing one of my most recently completed quilts. This one is a 5 point Lone Star variation in shades of sea glass and complementary neutrals. Truth be told, I absolutely love it. I had a very hard time packaging it up and sending it off.
I'm playing catch up after a week of battling the worst sinus infection I've ever had. I guess that's what happens when the Bradford Pear trees and daffodils bloom in February. Anyway, I'm feeling much better and ready to get stuff done!
I'm currently in different stages of completion for nine quilts. Yeah, NINE... three commissions, three gifts, one charity quilt, one monthly quilt along, and one that I hope gets accepted into an upcoming show. I've said it before, I work best when things are chaotic and I'm under pressure.
Unfortunately, I can't share too much since several of these projects will be given as gifts. However, I'm going to give you a sneak peak of two completed tops waiting to be basted:
