I don't usually work on a Sunday but this week may turn itself a bit upside-down, so I thought it was a good idea to get a head-start on the week.
I did start my day, however, as always.....with a bit of hand-stitching.
I've been taking part in an easy Instagram sewalong called #scrapbagsampler. When the sewalong is done there will be a tutorial on making a little tote of some kind with the blocks.
The block I completed today is the hexie one...to give you an idea of scale, it measures 2.5x6.5. None of the blocks have taken very long at all. I especially liked learning the wonky star with the two fabrics in the star points, and I liked the curvy one.
I've been taking part in a knit-along, also, learning two-at-a-time socks on 9" circular needles. You have to post a picture of each step before getting the next set of instructions.
These are pretty basic socks, but you have to make these in order to progress to the more intricate ones.
Much to my surprise, I have liked working on these short needles. I didn't think any method would beat out DPN's for me. Live and learn.
I just had a few rows to knit this morning to get me up to where I needed to be.
Then I switched over to my applique....what a productive morning!....although the first two projects didn't actually take too long at all.
I want to finish the Animal Album blocks that have been started before deciding what will come next.
The squirrel still needs to be re-done....it is on the original background that I had started with before changing my mind.
That's all for now. I think I'll spend a bit of time in the sewing room.
I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.
