There is no secret what's on my design wall (actually the kitchen slide out) this Monday morning . . .
I got all my rows assembled and I'm so tickled with the result. All my cross lines match up so well!
I'll spend this week working on the hand-stitching part. It'll be a little tougher than it was with the blocks -- it's hard to maneuver that bulk of fabric, stitch, and not catch the fabric on the other side. But I will persevere! And who knows, by the next Monday, this may be a finish!! Linking up today with Patchwork Times and Design Wall Monday!
I also finished my new crochet homework . . .
Another baby doll blankie! Yay! I think this one looks much better than the first one. Practice, practice, practice. I wonder if I'm ready for a scarf? Haha!
Lastly . . . I finally got to get into that box of traveling stash (Box #5)! There are loads of fun prints!
There's a darling Moda panel by Sandy Gervais and stripes and gingham and lots of pretties. And a healthy portion of notions and patterns, too!!
I pulled a handful of fun prints from the box to keep, along with a really cute cross stitch pattern/kit . . .
And wouldn't you like to see what I put *in* the box ?!?!?!
You'll have to win the box to do that! But before you jump in, you must be an active blogger, you must be in the U.S. (it's got to be shipped priority), and you must be willing to abide by the rest of the rules and guidelines found HERE.
So, are you interested? You wanna see what I've put into the box?? Something in there appeal to you??! Okay then, leave me a comment and tell me what *new* skill you've started working on, or are planning to work on in the coming weeks? That's it! I'll keep this open until Wednesday, January 22, at 10:00 p.m. central time and post the winner Thursday morning!
