I was having one of those too many things to do with too little time days. I made myself exercise and then headed out to the sewing area to work for 15 minutes. I've finally finished all of the birthday gifts I was working on and now I'm going to make something just for fun. I found this pattern for a patchwork scottie dog last December and I think I will sew it up. Here are the colors I might be working with.
I have all of the green squares already cut to size from another project. The dog takes 54 squares so if I only have to cut half of those out I will be much happier. I don't know why I only have 3 purple pieces of fabric since it is one of my favorite colors. I'll have to fix that problem soon!
I started to knit a cable scarf but I can't get past casting on the yarn. My brain refuses to understand the directions. I will give it one more try and then choose a different project. If you have any suggestions let me know! I'm not sure I want to knit another scarf anyway. I haven't used the first one I made very much. I guess I'm not really a scarf girl. I don't want to knit another washcloth to use as a potholder either. I need to find a small project since I'm still a beginner and I don't want to mess up a big one or buy a lot of yarn.
I finished quilting a square in my king sized quilt, hooped up the next square but still haven't marked it so I can start working on it. I haven't quilted for over two weeks. Funny how I wonder why the quilt isn't finished after more than 10 years of quilting!
Do you have anything crafty going on at your house? Wanna share?
