Its been just over two weeks since my last post. The lack of exposition on the various crafting projects I have going is due to a number of factors, one of which is that I'm not sure that my progress is post-worthy. The items I am choosing to work on seem to be more long term and less instant gratification (with one notable exception.)
This post will serve as both my 100 Day Challenge and Slow Sunday Stitching check in.
1. I have finished the quilting on the Rainbow Dresden Quilt. This was Numero Uno on my 100 Day Challenge list and now I have just over a month to get the binding on to meet my goal.
2. The Castle by Teresa Wentzler - I haven't touched this since January. Its a very frustrating project and I've been too tired lately to deal with it. This is where I left off a month or so ago.
3. C2C Blanket - I've added almost another skein but since its barely noticeable I'm not going to take a new picture. But this one has taken a backseat to the baby blanket I've been working on.
Slow Stitching Projects
1. The twelve point star baby blanket - Another skein was completed last night! We now have three down, one to go. The baby for whom this is intended was born yesterday. I figure another week or two and this should be done. Its about 3 feet across right now.
2. Random Scarf - I started this at the baby shower for the above mentioned baby. Its now about half done and is alternating rows of triple crochet and half-double crochet.
3. Life is Beautiful Block Two - A finish!
4. My current stitching project - Imagination Unleashed. I'll be hopefully spending more time on this today in between loads of laundry. I have barely scratched the surface of this but I technically have a page finish. That little gray leaf all the way to the left is its own page :)
I hope you are all doing well. Remember to take some time today to relax and slow down, enjoying the process of creation by hand. See Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching Post @ Kathy's Quilts for more enjoyable projects and also a link to the health benefits of hand crafting. And please pop over to the 100 Day Challenge to see how people are coming along with their projects this year.
