Beginnings


Posted on October 14th, by Amy in crochet, work in progress. 5 comments

With fall setting in here, I’ve got lots of little projects that I want to get to, along with the things I have to get to, before the holidays. I’ve saved a pile of wovens, and linen fabrics for napkins, that I still haven’t touched, but I have started a few other things!

Last week I pieced this quilt top with some adorable AdornIt fabrics, and had to bust out the new roll of batting, to quilt it! Love all the possibilities that this bolt represents :

Fyi – it’s a 90″ x 40yd bolt of Warm & Natural

Shopping last year before Christmas, I found this crocheted garland, and fell in love. It’s been on my mental list of to do’s ever since.

Yesterday, I got started by practicing my stitches again. It’s been a while since I touched a hook, and I had a new set of hooks to try out too! I love crochet for football games that I’m mildly curious about, it keeps my fingers busy, any my mind alert. The new hooks are super comfy too - Clover Amour Crochet Hooks are non-slip and the yarn works over them really nicely!

Since taking the picture, I’ve pulled it out and added the white skein, it’s 100% wool and I’m planning to felt it a little too – hopefully I can get a good length done in the next month!

Do you have Christmas projects on your mind yet?

Have a great week -

Amy

    The quilt looks great! I love the crochet garland. I looked at some tiny knitted Christmas stockings on pinterest yesterday, but really I’m still making pumpkin-y stuff. :)

    Not quite yet. I am working on quite a few things for the new year but nothing for Christmas yet. You are a step ahead of me.

    I started an advent calendar last week. A feather tree is stitched from fabric and quilted. Wool ornaments are attached with buttons. I figured I must make at least four ornaments a week to finish it on time – December 1st for my grandchildren to use it.
