Monday Making

8 MORE little "H" blocks
and I can begin JOINING them into rows!!!

Hooray Hooray!!

Then....of course...
I'll have to add a border and WHO KNOWS
what that's going to be!
LOTS to dream about.
;)

Today I sat down and did some trimming.
I wanted to be sure the blocks were all 3 1/2".
I was SO surprised to be SO close on most of them!!

It made me think/HOPE I'm improving 
on that 1/4" seam THING!!!
LOL!



I've also been trying to use UP some vintage yarn
that was passed down to me.

It's a mindless activity I enjoy.
And...
since I need AT LEAST 3 projects going at ONCE....

I began this toddler sweater.

How many projects do YOU need to have going AT ONCE??

Link up and share about you're making this week!

  1. Your H blocks are going to make a very colorful and fun quilt. I usually have 3 to 4 projects going in the sewing room at once. I can't just work on one.

  4. Practice does make perfect on getting the right size! On the other hand we all have our moments of ugh on seam allowances. You're doing a good job on using up your yarns. The little green sweater looks great. Don't forget to show us pictures of the finished sweater. What pattern do you use?

  6. I love your scrap project! It might not need a border, decide after the top is together.

  7. Great scrap project - can't wait to see the finish! And to answer your question, I don't 'need' to have lots of projects going at once - they just happen!

  9. Your little H blocks are precious! Isn't it so exciting to be at the "borders" stage?! I'm not sure how in the world knitting can be a mindless activity as I'm just learning! I wonder how long you've been knitting? Your crochet project looks so pretty and cheerful! Love your projects! Thank you for sharing!

  12. I am busy making H blocks BUT I put the white/cream square in the middle!! I did not look properly at yours in my rush to start! (that is me all over) I will finish this baby quilt and then make one the RIGHT way! Mine looks fine - just not really H's. Cheers Jo
