It looks like a block of camo!! Looking at if farther away helps me see the leaves in the upper left corner, but up close I was getting worried about what I was stitching! Hoping to finish the other half of the page in the next few weeks.
I also dabbled a little in my 2012 SAL from the HAED BB - SK Blue Moon (and when I say a little, I mean barely 200 stitches!)
My phone camera doesn't take the best shots, or maybe it's my lighting....sorry about that. My last few posts have had some bad pics!
I decided to update my WIPocalypse list, knowing that my time will also be spent on my new sewing machine. I moved a bunch to a "delete" list for now...possibly adding them back in mid-year if things are looking good. I also updated the ones I'm going to work on with specific goals (since they're mostly all HAED pieces, I made page goals). Has everyone finished putting their list together?
In my last blog post, I had begun my adventure of making a quilt with my new sewing machine. After searching on the internet for various patterns, I decided to make a Cathedral Window quilt.....and of course I decided to make it big! Here's a link to the tutorial for the baby version: Cathedral Window Baby Playmat. My big version had me cut out 420 circles of fabric and 210 circles of batting! Who knew circles would be so difficult and time consuming to cut?
|Circles, circles, everywhere!|
I'm loving how much stitching everyone is doing already!! I think it's the Crazy January challenge that folks are participating in. Maybe I should have signed up for that one!
*diet update* - 25 lbs lost so far...... hoping 2012 adds to that number! :)
