January OMG

I did not like the way my hexi-flowers for the Kingfisher QAL came out.  How was that 18 months ago...?!?

Frustration lives in the space between expectation and reality.
 
I am going to re-imagine them as a cover for my Kindle.  My OMG is to piece together two 5x7'' ish* bits (or all one piece?).  This is what I started last night:

*because seam allowances do matter if you want things to fit...

July OMG - done...!

Ends are darned in:


Still more to knit.  I found some nice blues to add.

July OMG - grey/purple/blue stripes

This blanket has grown a bit since I began it in January 2018 (ish)  This month I will darn in the ends!




I made some progress already:

June OMG - June Quilt



This was from 2 years ago: pattern from crazy mom quilts' QAL.

My goal is to cut out 17 squares for the cornerstones (4 1/2") {and the setting triangles: four 7" squares cut into quarter triangles) from plain black, and to sew 20 strip sets (4 1/2" x 8 1/2" unfinished; need 48 for the lap quilt size) from black and white fabrics.  I have 4 ish so far, but lots of smaller bits sewn together.

The big squares and setting triangles in turquoise are already cut out, started at a class at my LQS.

May OMG - done

Ta da!


This was mostly fun to piece together, but I wish that I hadn't made it more complicated by using 5 solids (instead of just the one...)

May OMG - Mostly Modern

This month, I want to make a picnic blanket; backed with denim  or canvas or something sturdy.  We're having a sports day at work on the 22nd, but since I don't do sports-ball, I need something to sit on under a tree so I can read a book or knit.  :P

This fabric is from a few years back; pattern is called "Mostly Modern" from Back Porch Fabric in Pacific Grove.  Gail's demo was the same feature fabric but with just navy.  I added lime green, aqua, orange, and purple.  <3

April OMG - done

I couldn't sleep last night, so... I made good use of my time:



It feels good to be caught up with the ends!  And I got to add two more rows in purple, on the left side below:

Now I need to keep the sides even...  :P
