    Posted on July 11, 2013 by in Crochet, Designs, Inspiration, Latest Updates, My Projects

    The year is half over and in 2 weeks summer will be half over too.

    I have not been blogging because I have been a little busy. I have also been hot and grumpy and dealing with some family issues, so I applied the “If you can not say anything nice…” rule.

     

    Here is a quick glimpse of what I have been up to.

    Working on my Amish with a Twist II quilt. I learned how to make Flying Geese.

    4 flying geese are used to make these stars. YES I did fix the last one… I wan’t going to.

    I made 2 ironing boards 24″ x 24″ and 12″ x 24″

    I used Cottage Magpie’s post here’s the  link  as a jumping off point. My hands hurt for 2 days after all that stapling…

     

    With the Help of Craftsy.com and Kristen Link’s FREE class –  I made my Godmother a Zipper pouch to hold her Birthday gift. I made myself one as practice. The Fabric is from the City Quilter in commemoration of Grand Central Stations sentinel

    I have not abandoned my needles and hooks.

    I am working on my 2-color brioche This is also from Craftsy.com  Brioche knitting with Nancy Marchant

    Finished some projects and started a few more.

    I have even had some time for fiber fun as I play with a design idea.

  1. Ooooh, that brioche knitting is stunning!!! I am a very very very beginning knitter, so that just seems like alchemy to me. Your amish quilt is delicious, though, I may have to make one of those! Beautiful!

    Thanks for mentioning the ironing surface tutorial, by the way, I’m completely touched that you would reference it! Thank you!

    I really like that brioche piece. That’s something that’s on my list of things to learn.
