Wooohoooo - lots of stitching

 Lots of projects got to spend some quality time with me during the week.

The 'Long on Colour' freeform challenge made an appearance. I think this is going to be a cowl.
Earthy and autumnal colours with a pop of black and white. 



And we had such a lovely day yesterday that I was stitching in the back garden in the shade with my kitty companion.

My BAMCAL 2017 Blues Blanket has two more 12" blocks made.

Block Four is Kaleidoscope Blossom Square by Chris Simon



Block Five is Marigold Mandala Square by Dorianna Rivelli with slight adjustments in the outer rounds as, once again, I 'do-my-own-thing'.

The Summer Brights Blanket has four more 6" blocks.

This is Window Box Granny by Lisa Mauser

The ¾" Hexagon Quilt

The darker blue has been added to the rosettes, and lots of yellows prepared ready for attaching.

Weaving Project- My Garden, panel 2.

This panel starts with a band of regular weaving at the bottom which is the same yarn as Panel 1, and then gradually incorporates freeform weaving as it progresses. 
Multiple weaving styles and texture will be added to this.


So that was my week. Very productive, and I even got to empty and clean out the fish pond (as the two last fish in there disappeared last weekend, probably to a kingfisher or new stray cat that I've seen hanging around).

  1. Wow, you have had a lot of different projects in your fingers recently. :) The freeform crochet looks neat. I can almost see a cowl grow from that. And I love your BAM CAL squares. I was all excited for February's squares and then as the month turned over, I promptly busied myself with making other things. I best get on that as we're nearly half-way through the month already! lol

  4. You weren't kidding you got a lot done! It's been really warm here too and nice to sit outside. Spring is here in the South of the U.S. The free form fascinates me but I wouldn't know where to start or how to make anything from it...that's talent! Your block #4 almost looks like the block for my daughter's basket. I love block #5 and adore the window box granny squares! Your hexies are really coming along and your weaving is exquisite. How do you get so much done and so beautifully? Congratulations!

    1. Happy to hear you have good weather there too at the moment.
      Some weeks I'm very good with time-management, other weeks I'm very good at procrastinating, lol.

    So many lovely and interesting things to look at, but I must say that Marigold Mandala is very striking!

  6. You are always such an inspiration! You have so many projects on the go and each one is interesting (although I have to admit that your freeform crochet is what really catches my eye).
