I hope you all had so much fun bringing in the new year!
We had a pretty sedate evening,
but we like it that way!
And then yesterday...
Was that a fabulous game or WHAT!?
Throughout the day yesterday,
as I do every January 1,
I started several new projects!
I started the Mexican Band Sampler by Needle Work Press.
I'm using a 36 ct linen that I dyed myself, as well as my own conversion using various overdyed threads. Looking forward to working on this one!
On the quilting front,
This has been a LONG time coming!
I've been collecting 2" squares of newer and vintage Liberty of London fabrics for many years,
knowing I wanted to do a scrappy hexagon quilt.
So yesterday I finally started!
Because, you know, I NEED more handwork projects!
This is going to be a long term quilt project,
but it will never get finished if I don't start!
I'm still deciding on another quilt to start, but so far,
this is it!
And then the yarn...
My sweet dear friend, Lori, gifted me with this lovely skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Lite in the Jasper colorway for Christmas. I couldn't wait to get it on the needles!
I'm knitting the Pebble Beach Shawlette by Helen Stewart.
And then this...
Another crocheted Granny Shawl,
but this one will be more SHAWL than scarf, like the previous one I crocheted!
I'm using Plymouth Yarns Gina in the Sunset colorway
and let me tell you....it is FLYING off the hook!
What did you start on New Year's?
I really want to know!
