I’m just busy and haven’t had anything much to post about. My Therapy shawl for the KAL is nearly done – I’ve gotten it as large as the pattern calls for but think I may make it a bit larger and use up a bit more of some of the yarn used in it. Half a cake of sock yarn does not a sock make so might as well add it to the shawl.
I had hoped to have the instructions for the Block Party Picnic design done to post this weekend but last weekend I came down with a horrid cold, missed a day of work, missed a lot of sleep, so haven’t gotten much done. Where is the maid who really needs to clean my house and do my laundry and go buy groceries??? 🙂 I personally don’t have time to do this project as a QAL right now being in the midst of Camp Loopy this month and next, along with other summer activities, vacations, etc., but since I don’t like to postpone something I’ve promised more than two months, I’ll just be posting the instructions (when they are written – before the end of July) to the free pattern pages as I know there are some people anxious to start on this project.
Our second Camp Loopy project could officially be started yesterday, July 1 (and I can’t believe it’s already July!), and needless to say I know that cold medicine and rotary cutters don’t mix so I didn’t attempt it. I do plan to have all 88 of my 5″ finished HSTs made and laid out on the design wall early tomorrow a.m. I’ve got about half done. It should be a quick and easy project this month which is good since I just drew up a new quilt design for Hoffman Fabrics that I need to put the finishing touches on and then get the pattern written up.
In the meantime, a little eye candy – just one of the designs I was playing with that didn’t work for the Hoffman Fabrics fabric that I was working with, but I think it still might be a design I need to make for myself – tho not in this color combination.
