Although progress was made in little ways, no real finishes except the knitted coffee cozies.
Marinier's Compass Progress:
I spent the early part of the evening in my sewing room working on the 1st compass for my mariner's compass quilt in the green colorwave. I was able to get these 8 pieces together before the Olympics called me to change projects so I could watch the events. Yes, watching the Olympics has been exciting but it has slowed down the time I have to spend in my sewing room (no TV in there!)
It was pretty neat to see Norway with the gold in men's super G and the USA getting the silver and bronze. (My husband is Norwegian!)
I needed to finish up the 7 knitted coffee cozies, weaving and securing the tail ends. I then washed and blocked them so they would be ready to take to my daughter on Sunday when we visit! (There is a second blue one hiding behind the other blue one.)
Since I have started this blog, I have become aware of so many talented ladies out in cyber world. After reading so many blogs, I have challenged myself to yet another new handcraft - stitchery! I am starting small with the cute Valentine hearts from Kviltstina. Yes, I know that it is after Valentine's Day but hearts and love are for everyday so here are the ones I have finished yesterday!
They are so pretty....wouldn't you agree!!
Well, we are off to Indiana with excitement to see our daughter, Kirsten's Senior Show! This is the culmination of 4 years of hard work! We are so proud of her!
