I did manage to finish the quilt I was working in on my last post - except that it took a wee bit longer to do than my estimate of 20-30 minutes... Two hours later, I snipped the last of the threads holding it to the machine - and I'm finally getting it's picture taken today.
This quilt will be donated to Project Linus.
I can't remember the name of the fabric, but it's made with 2 charm packs and some Kona Snow. It's a disappearing 9-patch quilt - so fun and easy to do! I did a diagonal stitch both ways through each block and also stitched in the ditch around each block. It's got a bright striped binding to finish.
I also managed to finish a 4-week long knitting project. I saw notices on Facebook from Red Heart yarn, talking about a shawl knit-along. The pattern looked easy enough (I've been knitting since I was 12, so, about 30 years? LOL), so I signed up to knit the Textured Triangle Shawl. It was a lot of fun to knit - so much fun in fact, that I've started a second one and have yarn for a third one! The yarn for this project is a chunky / bulky weight (size 5), so it went fairly quickly. I chose a pale grey - it will probably match more clothing colours that way. I finished a few days after the official deadline - the garden was in desperate need of some attention, so that got in the way, but the shawl is finished now!
I think it's a bit smaller than the pattern suggests (more people commented on the same thing), but it's big enough for me!
