Needlework Tuesday - Getting started
I will be knitting two at a time, but have started with just the one for the moment. the pattern says to use a slightly smaller needle for the lining part, and the one I have is too short to do both pairs. Guess I need a new needle.
I'm not adverse to making changes to patterns, in fact, I do it quite often. One of the blocks for this pattern is the cake stand. It's a pretty block but it just doesn't fit with all the others. out it goes and I'll find another I like better. As long as I keep the colours co-ordinated it will work.
I've also embarked on a secret mission project for a friend. She was over last week and we looked through the quilt tops I have tucked away. She found one she liked and now I'll be working at getting that one quilted before the holidays. A quick trip to the quilt shop for batting and thread and they also had a lovely template for quilting, now I'm ready to go. I'll sneak in some close-ups as I work along, but the unveil will be in the new year. I'm sure you don't mind waiting.
Any one else working on secret projects? oh wait, you can't answer that...
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
I hope that you are having fun and making progress on whatever project is dear to your heart at this moment. Mister Linky is waiting below for a link to your needlework post.
