In addition to wrapping up one brief work assignment, I made matching tote and zipper pouch, spun some yarn (badly and with difficulty), and started sewing the patchwork together.
And, in my spare time, I’m working on this.
I started a new skein on the Louisiana scarf today. It’s progressing nicely. I’m going to make it a bit long.
I decided to make a quilt for the sofa for TV watching in the artificial winter. It’ll be just a plain patchwork, kind of boring but useful, made in part from an old sheet.
I also made a little progress spinning after a period of backsliding.
The urge to quilt won out today, so I made a quilted bag. I needed something I could start and finish on the same day, and I’ve been wanting to do something with this fabric. I think I’ll use it as a knitting tote.
I’m feeling the urge to quilt today, possibly because this month is the red challenge in one of the art quilt groups on Facebook that I joined. I love red. Except that right now I’m drawn to purple instead, maybe because I have some purple handspun that I’d like to couch.
On my own, before I joined the group, I’d done six “color studies” (I don’t know what else to call them): blue, red, black, brown, yellow, and orange, in the slow stitch style (made in that order). The symmetry bug had bitten down hard by the time I got to orange.
I’ve yet to actually do any couching or beading, but I really want to give it a try. However, what I really need to do today is to stop putting off the work assignment that I’ve been not doing for about a week now and just get it done.
