WIPs - where did I leave off??
On Superbowl Sunday, I accepted an invitation from GF Kay. Was great to see her again!!! And, I was green with envy -- she had her Drawn Thread: Gameboard Sampler finished & in a beautiful frame, on her coffee table. Not only that, she has been stitching the Acorn Sampler Afghan.
GF Sue had a State Day Project with her - from a couple years back. It was canvas work in beautiful teal fibers. GF Tina had a fabulous canvas project (I forget the designer) of quilt blocks. I had my Encore scissor keeper stuff with me. Sue already said it was going to be "hers" b/c I'm using her favourite colors!!! LOL so much fun to gather some of the Thread Heads together. Thx to Kay for hosting! Great food, snacks, and chat : )
Seeing Kay's progress, I just HAD to get mine out & see where I was with those two WIPs
My last post on the DT gameboard says I had 15 houses & 18 motifs done.
My Afghan progress to date, looks like I have nine squares completed -- out of 18. I had to remove one motif as it was too off center. Plus, Kay is waiting for me to get to the lettering -- I changed colors from the original chart & shared my choices with her!
ALSO -- I'm waiting to hear how the knitting class went.
Monday, I was out running errands & stopped in the Chesterton Art Center. They have an exhibit thru February 15th - per web site: "Jan 15 - Feb 15 : The Mentors of the Art Center. Our mentors are the wonderful instructors who give their time and talent to our students. Come and view the talent they have to share." Guess who had their prize winning quilt on display??? Pat Winter. I had seen it once, at the String-a-Long Quilt Show last Fall. But, the gallery has it on the wall where you can get really close to see the detail. If you are in the neighborhood, don't miss it!
