October OMG - purple ombre shawl

Yesterday I bought another skein of yarn (color 5184) for this:

It is a gift for an old teacher of mine, to wear while she meditates.

My goal for this month is to use up as much of the ball as I can before binding off.  I leave for Korea early next month, so I need to finish this by then so I can gift it in person.

September OMG - done

Finished the last few stitches on the binding a little bit ago.  Posting with 45 ish minutes to spare.  :P

What I learned from this quilt is that I really need to take my time with the prep/basting.  Smooth it out and secure it well before I begin quilting.  I'm so eager to get started, but it ends up all baggy and droopy.  Still - I'm hopeful it will be snuggled in and well loved!  <3

August OMG - done

I got the embroidery done, and I have begun the quilting.  Made a not-so-straight line while piecing it that needs to be un-sewn before I can quilt over it all.

August OMG - Zodiac Baby Quilt

My friend had her baby:

I've pieced the center of the quilt:

My goal is to embroider/free-motion his name this month, and then I can continue to the next step.

July OMG - done!

I darned in the rest of the ends last night while sitting at my daughter's karate class, so ta-da!

I also planned out the next two rows.  I want to make it 17 x 11 squares before I add the border.

July OMG - Progress

Evened it out, so it is 13 x 11 squares now:

Time to focus on darning in the ends!
