Have you ever had a quilt or project that stayed on your mind so much, you couldn't think of anything else; or want to work on anything else? Well, this is that one on my mind...It keeps calling to me to be finished. UFO 3 as I call it right now. I came home Monday night and continued to work on it. I put a small black border around it and I put together enough strips for two sides. I think it looks wonderful with the piano key borders. I have to put together more strips for the other sides but I'm going to make some more little blocks for the corner squares. It's up on my design wall just begging me to work on it...I had to ignore it last night and go to my tatting group. I did go up and look at it while I was getting my materials ready for knitting tonight but I promised it I would work on it Thursday night. I'll show you the progress by Thursday night. The piano keys just make this quilt.
Last night was Tatting Tuesday and I worked on my flag. I am getting this done slowly but I'm really enjoying it. I don't get to tat except on Tatting Tuesdays as I've got so many other crafts to work on. I am on the last two strips so hopefully I can get this finished by the first part of February. One of the girls brought Primo dough last night to tatting and showed us how to do it. She brought her rolling pin, cutter and pasta maker. She brought her cutters and made small stars. My friend, Mary Jo, is making a flag too and she wanted these for her tatted flag. I am considering this but I really want to stick to all thread so I can put this in the fair under tatting and not other techniques....I'll let you know...
Tonight, I'm going to be teaching a friend of mine to knit. Maybe I should say, I'm going to try to teach her to knit. She's left handed and I've never taught anyone to knit. I'm going to show her what I do and try to help her get the hang of it. We'll see how it goes tonight and if it goes ok, I'll continue next week. If not, I'll refer her to the knitting store or my friend that teaches knitting for a living....I'm excited but kinda nervous. Wish me luck!
