What's Up 3-19-18

I haven't shown what is up on the design wall in a while.

Wouldn't of been able to last week because I was redoing it. Before I just had some flannel stapled to the wall

I took this picture a while back, before the rearranging of the room

Anyhow I used the flannel again, after a good washing and had to get some more to cover the new way. 
Which was so much whiter
Purchased some foam broads, 4' x 8' sheets which I cut in half. It was easier to handle plus it was the only way I could get it home in the car.

Now it covers a whole 8 ft by 8ft
Floor to ceiling. Having 4 sections that are 4 x 4 Had to cut out openings for the light switch and one outlet.

Not the best of jobs but it works and it should be covered most of the time anyway. So nice to have so much space to use now. And will not have to use tape if the quilt is bigger than the flannel was.

 Have up the Dreamy Hexagons

working on another one it's borders, 16 patches

The other part of the wall has the blocks finished and in the process of making using 2 1/2" strips. Remember I'm trying to find patterns using 2 1/2" strips seeing how I have so many.

It takes 9 blocks and have 2 completed, 3 cut out, with needing 4 more to decide on color arrangements

This one is ready to sew.

Perfect Sunday

It was a perfect day if you ask me, helped the "Man of the Place" with some cows and a couple hours in the sewing room.

But the best part was finishing the binding on the Embroider Baskets.


And was able to get hung up in the living room. Perfect springtime quilt.

I just love striped fabric for binding.

Pam at Sager Creek did the quilting and again another gorgeous job.

Such a sweet pattern.

Fun Night

Tuesday night was our 30’s Club meeting at Sager Creek Quilt Shop and Pam asked if I would do the program this time. Lately I haven’t had to, so this was a nice change. My past program would be on events or people but that stuff is packed away in the garage and really didn’t have time yesterday to prepare a new one. So I thought about what I could do. I have been so out of the loop on new things that I figure I needed to come up with something. 
Had an idea I could show the portable design wall I made last year.

Here is the link to the original post with all the instructions and supplies needed.

Turned out to be a good choice and some said that they planned on making one for their room and other for retreats. 

We always have a show and tell and there were a few who brought something. 

These are the ones

Slow Sunday

I would have to say that it was a slow day which part of it was dealing with doing our taxes.....fun....fun
we're not done but getting there.

This afternoon was time to relax and work on a new crochet project seeing how I finish the Ripple Blanket.

It turned out very nice and not a bad size 65 x 70, not quite a twin size but it is big enough to lay on the couch and be covered.

This is the first of this months goals to be completed. I knew I was close when I decided on a list.

This next project is something I had seen a while back and have been wanting to do just because it would be a great way to use up all these small balls of yarn I have.

This basket is only about a 1/3 of the the ball stash.

Very easy pattern,  using two yarns at a time with a large hook and doing a half double stitch.

By the time I got around to writing this I have this much done, going very quickly because of the large hook I'm using.

Oh February,

Here it is the end of the month and I have more finishes than I thought.

The latest two finishes are totally done.

Scandinavian Christmas is quilted and binding on.
Here are a group of pictures.

I just think this backing is perfect.

The other finish is what I called my travel project.
This knitted shawl stayed in a bag out in the car.
And has for about 3 years, but now it's done... YEAH

Finish size is 26" x 66"

RSC for February

Plans are to machine quilt it in March.

Then I finally finish the last of the RSC from 2015.

Call this one Splash of Color, even thou I believe the pattern does have a name, just can't remember.

Did finish a crochet baby blanket made from yarn in my stash

Feels very good to have finishes. I hope you too had a productive month.

Ready for March?

Sunset this evening, lovely colors
