In the evenings I have been working on this crochet piece that Attic24 (Lucy) in the UK introduced as a Moorland Blanket crochet-along in January. It's been since the 1970s that I have crocheted, but I'm happy to say I haven't forgotten.
My neighbor and friend Becky and I together ordered 15 colors of Stylecraft Special DK yarn, but not in the color-pack suggested. Instead, we chose Florida-like colors: sands, golds, oranges, and aquas. I'm not very far along because I've un-crocheted way too many times. Though I've got the stitches right, my counting has been off as I go along each 180-stitch width. I will persevere! I like that ripple design too much.
My Bars quilt, the one started in a QuiltCon workshop, is done. I need to get outdoors to take some good pictures to share. And I'm preparing a quilt label tutorial. My friend Paige, of QuiltedBlooms, is prepping a label tutorial too. We plan to share our tutorials on April 4 so blog-followers can see two different ways to make them.
Other projects that aren't sharable in photos include completing pattern-writing for my Florida quilt and working on my Central Florida MQG challenge quilt.
For the challenge, we're to choose solid color chips (fabric swatches or paint chips) with color names that begin with our three first initials. Mine are LDH. Then we're to make a quilt with a total perimeter of no more than 96". Our May 8 meeting will be a reveal with voting for viewer's choice, winners, and prizes. I can't share anything about it here until after that meeting. What I can tell you is that I'm really struggling to come up with a design!
Later today I'm participating in my first ukulele workshop. Three hours with Stuart Fuchs, a renown artist.
Hopefully this will help me up my playing ability. Because heaven knows, I have a long way to go toward being even slightly good! Linda
