Work in Progress Wednesday


It's been a busy quilting week, with lots of progress to show for it today. I almost finished my red star last night.  Just one more border to do.  But rather than risk mis-cutting something because I was tired, I left it at this point and went to bed.  I did finish writing up the instructions however.  I'll run the border on the blue star from the last update and make sure everything is calculated correctly.  Then it will be ready to post.

And on the knitting front, I pulled out some random yarn, to try out the pattern I want to use for this month's Camp Loopy project.  It's a good thing I did. In the 3 repeats shown here, no two of them look the same :(  The good news is, I think the third one is actually correct, so I think I'm getting better at it.  I have another week before Camp starts, so I'll finish up another couple of repeats just to make sure I've got it in my head.  Then I'll be ready to start when time arrives.

I'm linking up at Freshly Pieced and the Needle and Thread Network today.  Drop by to see what everyone's up to this week.

  10. Pretty star! I like the colour of your random yarn. Sometimes those lacy patterns take some getting used to.
