Two weeks gone

Actually, I was only gone for five days, but it turned into two weeks in blog land.  I have been working on projects though.


I finished my Shawl Society III “Wick” shawl.  There was a lot of plane time knitting, and a bit while I was in hot and humid NY.  I gifted this shawl to a friend who recently lost her beloved Husky dog, Mocha.  I hope she’ll get to use it this coming winter.

The next shawl pattern comes out on the 30th.  The yarns to be used were released last week, and I found my ShiBui gift certificate and put it to good use.  This yarn “Cima” is a lace weight, and so soft.  The colors are Bordeaux, Fog, and Caffeine, I can’t wait to see the pattern.  I also got a few other skeins of “Birch” yarn from them.  More yarn stash enhancement was made with a sale at knit picks and for a shawl project that will be a Christmas present.  At least I didn’t buy any fabric last week 🙂


I doing the Fat Quarter Shop’s BOM called Christmas Figs, it started last month, the blocks are large, 16 1/2 inches square.  I was attracted to this quilt project by the variety of the blocks and the colors of the fabric line.  Plus the fact that two blocks a month is do-able for me.  Here are the  July and August blocks.IMG_3560

I am still trying to finish up my PIQF entry before 8/28/18.  I am quilting it, but just kinda lost the spark to finish it.  I don’t know if it is the vacation interruptions or just the fact of having a deadline.  I can’t seem to make myself work on it more than an hour at a time.  I still like my idea and how it is progressing, I just know that I should have finished it by now.  Procrastination is not something I normally do, well maybe with chores I don’t want to do in the first place.  Perhaps that is the trouble, this quilt has become a chore.

Linking up with Judy at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts For Design Wall Monday today.

  1. The Christmas blocks are nice and bold! Is the pattern available without this particular group of fabrics? (I guess I could look that up for myself . . .)

    • It’s a book, the title is “Christmas Figs” by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree &Co. It contains all the block patterns and 10 quilting projects. Its well written, with easy to follow directions and lots of pictures and drawings. I think that it would be pretty in solid red and white, or green and white, the blocks aren’t really holiday themed for that matter. Scrappy would work too.

  2. The shaw turned out beautifully! The colors for your next project are lovely and so are you holiday blocks. Happy knitting and stitching this week.
