I finished up PQR last night leaving the queen stitch quilt for last. I don't know why I think I hate that stitch because I always end up enjoying it. :-) Like all the others, these two charts worked up super quick and I love how they are all looking together. Only three more to go!
I started a small project from the Blackbird Designs book, With Needle and Thread. I'm using a really pretty Silkweavers 28 count called Marine Blue. I'm using the coolest Needle Necessities overdyed floss called Snoqualmie Falls - it's dark marine blue, dark green and dark mauve. Needle Necessities is sadly going out of business so a couple a weeks ago I picked up about 15 skeins of my favorite colors. Anyway, this will be a birthday gift for my sister. She as been really bugging me for about a year now to give her something. Personally I think that's very rude but she just keeps at it. So hopefully this will shut her up for a while. :-) I was going to make a mattress type pincushion out of it, but I think it will finish too big for that so I might end up putting it in a small frame. I'll have a photo tomorrow for sure when I have more than just a couple of letters complete. I should be finished by the end of the week for sure. I'm not sure what I want to start next/finish up. I'm not really enjoying working on Quaker Samplings from CHS but I really want it finished. So maybe I'll work on that for a couple of days and start the new Blackbird Designs Loose Feather. I'm already to go with that one.
