Doodle-head Stitches Episode 5

Thanks for watching!



Show Notes

Knitting: I've been working some more on my ninth Age of Brass and Steam kerchief, and I've gotten to the second color on my Sea Dragon Shawl.

Quilting: I finished block 12 on Eldon by Edyta Sitar. I have about 2/3 of block 6 of 7 pieced for my Over the Rainbow quilt by Tacha Bruecher and I am steadily making my green hexies for the next set of blocks. I also finally finished block 8 of 13 for my A Rainbow Garden wool felt and flannel quilt by Heart to Hand that was a block of the month by Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop.

Crochet: My Scrappy Sock Yarn Granny Square Blanket saw no progress, but I did do a little bit of crochet this week. I finished 2 new coasters using the book 101 Small Doilies book by American School of Needlework. I mistakenly gave credit for the book in the video to Leisure Arts.

Cross Stitch: I'm still working on Spooky House by Sandra Parlow for X's and Oh's. I've finished the cross stitch on the front door and will be backstitching that section next.

Doodle-head Stitches Episode 4

Thanks for watching!



Show Notes

Knitting: My classes were wonderful at Stitches South, and I learned a LOT! In my last post, I showed off my Stitches South 2015 purchases, and it was quite a haul. I also worked on my Enchanted Isle socks while I was at there, in between classes. After the convention, was over I finished my High Plains Poncho! And I started two new projects, a ninth Age of Brass and Steam kerchief, and a Sea Dragon Shawl. The Sea Dragon Shawl pattern can be seen on Ravelry. You can also see the multitude of Sea Dragon Shawls that have been stitched in all different colors and yarns. I love Ravelry for putting all of this information (and more!) in one place so you don't have to go looking all over the web to get ideas and information.

Crochet: I've connected 22 squares on my Scrappy Sock Yarn Granny Square Blanket. I got some more mini-skeins from one of the vendors at Stitches South The Amy Lee Show (Canon Hand Dyes), who is also on Etsy.

Quilting: Eldon by Edyta Sitar didn't see any progress this week because I had my sewing machine in for service, but I have the next block picked out, ready now that I have my machine back. I have about half of block 6 of 7 pieced for my Over the Rainbow quilt by Tacha Bruecher.

Cross Stitch: I'm still working on Spooky House by Sandra Parlow for X's and Oh's. I've worked a little more on the front of the house where the flames are and the windows / front porch.
