I had a productive week for a change! Feeling really good and I have energy too....which I haven't had in awhile. I did finish the Giant Granny Square blanket although the edging didn't seem to turn out like my others. It curled so I washed and dried it but it still curls. I did not do the last round of the edging pattern but that should not have made a difference as I didn't do that round on the others either. *Marsha...I forgot to mention that to you if you use that edging pattern*
Anyway, here it is ............actually it is not that wonky and probably looks better folded up or on a bed or chair...........that will probably be the last Giant Granny Square I make. I think I've had my fill now.
I did not finish Sam's tie but I am on the homestretch. I did the decreases for around the neck and now it is just 8 stitches and garter stitch to the end. It looks awfully long to me but I followed the instructions to a T and it is a Red Heart pattern....hopefully it will fit him alright.
Besides my yarn that came in the mail...........
I also got a couple quilting books from Thrift Books.........
That's it for this week. My goals for next week will be to finish Sam's tie, final finish the Summer XS, make 3 more scrubbies and some granny squares. I have ordered a quilting hoop, and needles to maybe try hand quilting my Christmas quilt. I also have plans for working on the quilt for my bed and making some blocks for a Scrappy Star quilt....we shall see! Plus, once I finish Sam's tie I will pull out the old Multnomah...this will be the 3rd time I'll be trying to make it....3rd time is charm they say. I also need to make a rotation schedule for cross stitch, and all my other crafts.
I hope you have all had a happy and creative week and I wish you the same for this coming week!
