Boy, oh boy – I’ve been sucked into the world of Instagram. It’s so addictive, I find myself checking in WAY too often. I need to set some limits for myself, I think. With TheMakersYear, I’ve found a few like minded English paper piecing folk and there’s a group that was started to encourage just a 15 min daily stitching session on these projects in order to hopefully see some progress. It’s actually been a great way to sneak in few moments on a rather huge WIP that I would dearly love to see finished up in the next year. I’m making a scrap hexagon queen sized quilt top. I began this top in 2012 and it’s entirely made by hand. EPP is really a great way to do a bit of hand sewing and enjoy seeing those seams come together perfectly!
On the knitting front, I’ve been busy. My garter stitch blanket almost has a completed second panel. I’m still reading War and Peace (I’ll be reading this forever, but it IS good) and a Maggie Sefton knitting murder mystery is my fluff reading at bedtime.
Umaro and Nicholas’ blanket have also seen a fair bit of action, but I’ll post more tomorrow on them.
I haven’t shown you some other stitching that’s been going on. I started this project back in November during the weekend away in New York with John. It’s a Rosewood Manor pattern (she has some really beautiful designs…) and it’s been so nice to see real progress on a piece.
Joining up with Ginny today – head over to see some fantastic work!
