Spring Sewing Party!


9:20 PM Update
Had dinner, watched Canada win the gold in curling and finished the first sleeve for my sweater!  I haven't knit a sweater for over 20 years (and that was a baby sweater).  It's obvious...apparently a few times during the lacy portion of the sleeve, I messed up and the pattern is off.  Good thing I'm not a perfectionist...I don't think it will be a glaring error once the sweater is done.  If it it, I'll reknit the sleeve.  I'm going to check out all the blogs and see what everyone else has been up to.  I'll leave the cutting of my second block for tomorrow...I'm a little too tired to use the rotary cutter! Can't wait to see what everyone has been creating all day!

6:00 PM - Second Update

Block #1 is finished!  Dinner and curling, then hopefully I'll still be awake to do block 2.  :o) 



4:30 PM - First Check In...
The plan was to be ready to go, with dinner in the Crockpot by 10am.  I was ready, dinner was set...but due to circumstances beyond my control, my plans were changed and I didn't set foot into my sewing room until 3:30 this afternoon. I was going to make the two blocks for my Heartland Heritage BOM as my first project...looks like I'll be lucky to get both of them done as my only project!

The first block is now cut and the sewing has begun...
And I"ll be taking a break to watch the Gold Medal Curling match at 6...it probably will be my last chance to see curling until the next Winter Olympics! 


I haven't been near my sewing machine in over a week and it's time.  Guess where I'll be this weekend?  Yep, Kelly and Joan are the hostesses for the Charming Girls and Guys Spring Sewing Party.  I'll be working on my February projects...see you on Saturday!

This Olympic season is the first time I have heard of curling. I don't understand it all but looks interesting.

The sweater sleeve looks wonderful to me. I can't seem to manage knitting or crocheting because they go too slow for my taste compared to sewing where you can see big pieces come together quickly. Your quilt block is lovely!
