I finished block 1 last week, and have started cutting out the pieces to block 2. I doubt I'll keep up with it by doing a block every month, but I am eager to see this hanging on my entryway walls one day.
Here's what else I've got going on:
- Outlander blocks 1 and 2 are out for pattern testing. Almost finished drafting blocks 3 and 4.
- Low volume quilt: I'm participating in a swap to get more variety in my fabrics for this quilt.
- Drafted a pattern for a new art quilt series...this is going to be fun!
- Knitting: Spectra scarf. I am on 60/84 wedges, although I may run out of the solid color yarn (black) before I get to wedge 84.
I recently finished reading Seams Unlikely by Nancy Zieman. While I felt it ran a bit long on details in some parts, I enjoyed it overall. I am so impressed by how she overcame so many physical and mental struggles that started at an early age. She is a true inspiration to us all. I also enjoyed her nuggets of business wisdom she imparted in the last 1/3 of the book, highlighting things she learned about running a business and managing people as a family to get the best from them.
Hope you're having a productive and focused week!
