WIP Wednesday

Pulled a bunch of fabric from the scrap bin to work on blocks for the Sew Pieceful Block swap.  Almost finished, just have to do the last couple and decide if they're good to send or if I want to redo the colors.  (It's so hard to pick colors for other people!)

Trying to figure out the layout for my flying geese.  Drew this up, did some geometry, realized that I forgot how geometry worked after my half curve up at the top left turned out wrong.  I did salvage it and managed to get both half curves done, but now I'm a bit sewing machine shy.  So I'm putting off the two full curves.  

Hemmed the second Washi Dress in the car. Yeah, that's right, I got some coffee and hemmed in the parking lot.  I have a problem. 

Finally got past the ribbing!  I'm redoing my Sweatshirt Sweater and practicing my Continental Style knitting.  It's pretty slow-going since I'm still trying to form the muscle memory, and because ribbing is sometimes evil, but now that I'm past it, we'll see how just straight up knitting goes.

    1. In my mind I'm pretty good at finishing things, but when I do a tally I'm not. And these are just the ones I've actually been working on, not the ones that I've let sit for months in a corner.

  2. wow, that's some serious math on that quilt. You can get tons done in the car . . . when you're waiting for kid's piano lessons or something, or maybe your A/C is cranked up in your house, and you're thawing outside in the car ???

    1. I usually knit while waiting to pick up the kid at school. Finished three kid sweaters and one for me!

      I was taking a break from errands, and got a coffee at Dunkin Donuts. It was pretty nice to crank the music and sew.


Go on! Comment! I love reading what you think! -m
