I have LOTS of irons in the fire this weekend. I’ll try to catch you up this week on all the things I was busy with. This post, I’m going to just focus on the crafting side of things.
I was up early a few mornings this week and got a few blocks done. This was one mornings accomplishments. The blocks aren’t anything that goes quickly. That’s for sure!!
I do enjoy putzing on them though. You can see that by Friday morning I was this far. Can you see the flying geese heart starting to take shape in the middle?
My goal was to get this really close to a top by the end of the long weekend. Do you want to see how I did?? Check it out…..
The coloring is more like the picture above…I almost have it together. I need to make a strip that goes on the right side of the heart. That’s going to take a bit as I no longer have any pieces that are constructed so I have to make it by scratch…I’m thinking I might make one more border that goes along the bottom of the heart too.
My letters borders are longer than I thought so I need to build up the center a little bit more…or mess with the already constructed borders. We’ll see what happens. I am getting closer though.
I might have gotten finished but I was sidetracked by this cross stitch. I’ve been wanting to get one finished each month and this one is the August one and look, August has passed us by. I’m close though. One evening of stitching and it should be finished.
Then I’ll be on to the next month. That one is “Friendship”. At this point, after this one is finished, I have four left of the sheep virtues to stitch. I’m pretty proud of myself. I started up cross stitch and have done a pretty good job sticking to it.
Next week is a busy week for me. We’ll see how much stitching and quilting I get done. I had family home today and yesterday so no crafty time. But we did get a few jobs done around here. Stop by later in the week and I’ll show you what we accomplished.
