I had taken a little bloggy/sewing break the past 2 weeks, but am back with some progress on ongoing projects as well as a couple new starts.


My latest figure 8 scarf, this one done on the cheap. The others I did as well as the details of the purchase power exhibited for this one can be found here.

Bags made for Pay-it-Forward handmade exchange on Facebook using a Keyka Lou pattern. I have these four done and have another 3 cut out.
New Projects:
This is my snowy day quilt. While huddled in my reading chair yesterday morning I decided I needed a warm cuddly quilt just for me. This quilt had been in my head for awhile, inspired by this quilt from Sara at Kindered Crafters. The squares are NOT part of the quilt, they are my block markers stuck on with tape. After taking the picture I am playing with actually putting some squares on with raw edge applique. The portion laying on the ground is the backing.

Flags are back! I am making 12 of these for the Winter Guard team at the High School. The first competition is this weekend and my daughter leads the program with a solo! Exciting times!


Made some significant progress on the HST project. I decided that this project really needed a design wall for layout so I created one with some flannel I had that you can see peaking out on the lower right corner.
