I am joining the weekly To-Do Tuesday Linky Party hosted by Chris at ChrisKnits.
To-Do for the week of July 6th-12th:
- Stitch one more grey Sashiko square with Caribbean floss. √Done
- Share photo of my fourth Fancy Fox. √Done
- Spend a little more time with EQ8. √Done
I was able to get one more Sashiko square stitched while visiting with my family. The pic below nicely shows the color of the variegated Caribbean floss, but the background cloth looks beige rather than grey which bothers me but not enough to take another pic! Taking photos of my sewing and stitching is still NOT a favorite thing to do! But it is nice to have them to document the journey and to share with others.
Here is the fourth and final fox for my modified Fancy Forest quilt that I am making as part of the Quilted Connections 1st Annual Spectacular Summer Sew-Along. I actually finished making this fox before I left for my vacation for California.
During a little downtime on my trip, I played some more with EQ8 and drafted another wonky star that I might use in a future Christmas project.
Sashiko Recipient Update:
Here is a pic of my brother, Bill, with his Two Cranes Sashiko, that I made for his 75th birthday present. He was thrilled with it and asked me to make a pillow for him with it. I had a wonderful time in California especially at the Giants ball game with Bill and Sharon (see second pic below), but we were a little chilly, and I’m sure glad Sharon gave me the cozy moss green sweater to wear!
To-Do for the week of July 13th-July 19th:
- Make two Fancy Forest Thistle Flower blocks.
- Finish my Positivity quilt top.
- Work on my Storm at Sea quilt project.
