I've had a busy week of marking things off my lists again. I finished a pair of knit mittens and a quilt top. I also made great progress with my daughter on her quilt and a mini for a swap. Today I'll show off my mittens and make my September ALYoF goal.
That's it for this week. Thanks for stopping by! I'm linking up with TGIFF and Finish It Up Friday.
|First off I finished these fun mittens for myself. I made a red pair last year that I loved but were a tad too small in the fingers. It was my first pair of mittens and I didn't know that I'd need to increase to fit better. Lesson learned I went back to the pattern with these in blue. The yarn is Knit Collage Pixie Dust Mini.|
|I was also able to finish up my Hazel Hedgehog top. LOVE! Seriously, a million times over. For September ALYoF I'd love to get this quilted and bound. I already have everything I need to do it but time. I did this in Kona solids and Cotton and Steel basics and I am so happy with how it turned out. This is for my oldest daughter, Miya. She picked the layout and I love how it's balanced. She decided on the first two virticale rows then flipped and repeated them. It makes the middle the same across but the rest are scattered nicely while keeping a pattern.|
|My middle daughter started her first quilt this week. She's doing simple patchwork with a layer cake in Canyon by Kate Spain for Moda. We're web piecing it and she has all the rows finished and just needs to stick them together.|
|In other news I finish got all my HSTs trimmed for my Color Dive quilt. This is going to be so awesome! Once I finish up my swap package I think I'll work on this a bit more.|
|Speaking of swap package here is a sneak peek. This is one of twenty. The pattern is Outhouse by Carolyn Friedlander. This will be done for show and tell next week. I'm so excited about it and can't wait to see them all together.|
