Stitch Sew & Show ~ 2022 ~ Week 17

 


Welcome to Stitch Sew & Show ~ 2022 ~ Week 17

The weather this past week has been more of the same ...

sunny days, breezy cold days, rainy days ...

and I have been inside and out working in my yard and inside on my many WIPs. 

It has been a good week.


I am on the last border for my 

Sampler Squares Crochet Afghan ~ Started Here

which I have been working on since the beginning of January.

It is nearing completion.

This border stitch is labor intensive and it tires my hands so I am managing about one round per day. Yesterday it rained and the kitties snoozed under the quilts so I was able to do a round and a half.  I plan to complete at least three more rounds so I have a nice wide ribbed border.  I love all the textures in the patchwork crochet project. 



In my sewing corner, I have been planning and new quilt as a special gift and am ready to start cutting.  More on that later. 

I did complete the first of these lovely and useful

Hexie Flower Thread Winders @surrur-sunday on Instagram

I did not have the stiff felt needed for the back of these thread winders so I had to order this small package online and wait for it to arrive. 


I will be making many more of these from my smallest scraps for my small stash of

Weeks Dye Works variegated threads.  


What have you been working on this week, my friends?

Please share!
