Crabby July

Sunday, January 24, 2010

I finally got around to finishing the July block of Raise the Roof's "Crabby All Year". I started the piece last January with the intention to finish each block in its corresponding month. I fell behind in April because the big field of grey on the tax-sheet was driving me insane. I tried to catch up again, but ended up giving up putting it away for a while. Finishing it is one of my goals for this year.

Just five months left to go and all twelve months worth of buttons to add. I can't wait for that part. The buttons are extremely cute!

Alphabet Without an S

Another four hours into "Swirly Sampler" has added the letters P-Q-R-S(tar)-T-U and some swirlies.There is actually an S-shaped "Swirly Star" charm that's supposed to go attach over the star but I'm having trouble finding it. It didn't come with the pattern and I can't seem to locate it online. I'll have to inquire about it next time I'm at my LNS.

I picked up this pattern today from The Strawberry Sampler while I was out running errands. I'm a sucker for pumpkin designs!
