Amanda and I decided to start another project. No knitting or crocheting this time. We are each making a pretty cross-stitch pincushion. I finished the backstitch, cross-stitch, and Rhodes hearts last night while listening to an audio book. I hope to have the Kloster blocks and buttonhole stitching done this week so I can do the sewing and stuffing next weekend. This is a quick project that will add a nice pincushion to my ever growing collection.
I have not finished the Dream Stripes shawl as I had hoped this week. I wound up starting it over after my last post. I didn't like the way the edge slip stitches were working up in this yarn. I opted to use a 3-stitch garter edge instead and it is working up much nicer. I am finally done with the stripes and have started the lace border, so should be done in a couple more nights of knitting.
It is time to pull out the quilting again. I have let them languish too long and need to get back to them. Hopefully I'll have some time to devote to them this week.
