On The Needles 6/20/14

I'm finished. Well except weaving in the ends and blocking. I will work on that this weekend. In between working and painting.

I really love the way it turned out. There are endless possibilities with this for sure.

Hopefully before the next Loopy starts I will have the painting of youngest sons bedroom done. Three different colors is not making it a quick paint especially since I don't know what kind of paint was on the walls originally. I just know that it took 6 coats of dark blue on the bottom and I was not a happy person. I have a lime green closet to paint today but I am seriously thinking about leaving it for my husband to do. I am suffering from tennis elbow and it is not helpful to be painting. Rest it for knitting is what I think needs to happen.

For more needle ideas head on over to Judy's.

I am almost done with my Camp Loopy project. I just don't have enough yarn and I had to order more. No, it really doesn't make me happy but what can you do. I did order my yarn for project 2 at the same time so more yarn will be coming in.

It is a very easy knit and I love working on it. I was just really hoping I would be done this weekend. I have a bedroom that will be taking up all my time next week, painting is very time consuming.

I saw this yarn and thought of vampires which lead me to Twilight which is one of my favorite set of books so that is what I went with for the challenge.

For more on the needles head on over to Judy's.


Hoping her yarn gets here quickly.

Loyal Union Sampler Month 3

Progress little by little. Still some easy ones. Yet there are a couple that will take some time.

B4 - Castle Wall - This is a difficult one. It took me over 3 hours but I did it all by machine. For me that is a major feat. I don't like sewing slow. With all these templates and set in seams it was not for the faint of heart. But it is done.

B7 - Christmas Star - Easy compared to B4 - lol. 

B8 - Coffee Mill - Triangles and squares oh how nice.

B9 - Combination Star - Hourglass and Square in a square still very nice and easy - that is a plus.

B10 - Connecticut - paper piecing. Good way to relax after some of these other blocks. Just have to watch color placement.

B11- Constance's Pride - A little tricky but figured out how to make it long and then whack it off. Makes the corners match up better. And the B row is done.

C1 -Cornerstone - paper piecing. Another easy one.

C2 - Cotton Boll - Another easy one. This one would be great to use a larger print in the X. 

A couple of tricky ones but a lot that are easier. We are on a roll.
