Although I added a couple more birds to the wall I didn’t get done with as much as I would have liked to. I was out much later in the afternoon then I thought I would be and that put me far enough out in the afternoon that by time I got home it was getting too close to time to start preparing supper that I sat at the computer for 30 minutes or so and answered email and read more blogs instead. Six rows of six birds in each I plan one more bird for each row – then I will put the rows together and work on a border to make this quilt large enough for a couch size. I’m getting burned out on birds LOL. I have some left over pieces from most of the colors and joined with scraps it will be either a piano key border or some kind of “crazy quilt patchwork” type of borders, I will have two birds left over so they might go in two corners and maybe make two more for one in each corner.
Handful of Scraps from Wednesday night. Quilting might not progress quickly over the next 10 days or so – I like to watch the Olympics in the evening when they are on as I do enjoy the Winter Olympics. I mainly like the skating – and some the skiing and snow boards – so some nights I might quilt and some nights I won’t and progress will be made on the applique instead and maybe some of the EPP – I have the Round We Go to continue working on and the Hertfordshire quilt – both have been sitting for awhile now.
Morning Glory – after I took this photo I got the other red tulip done. Next well be the bird legs and then the bird body.
Work is still going on the shawl LOL – my this is a slow project. I want this shawl large enough that it will cover my waist line in back as I get a cold back and want it completely covered.
Folded on the couch – I have been totally making up this design as I go and I have 3 more skeins of yarn to use if I desire – at times I think I could still make this into a shrug by stitching together arm sleeves on the ends LOL – but I would probably end up ripping it apart if I did – before I would do that though I will make it so it is deeper in length to cover my back and then pin the “sleeve” area to see if it would work and go from there. My main problem with a heavy shawl like this is that it tends to droop and fall – if it stays a shawl and not a shrug maybe a couple big buttons? We will see – one more thing I have seen on some here and there on pinterest is patch pockets to hold your phone, a tissue and whatever – maybe?
