It’s been a productive week with slow, but steady progress on my list. I finished my feed sack table runner and two matching napkins. I hope I have some additional fabric squirreled away somewhere so I can make at least two additional napkins. I started work on the crib mobile for our new granddaughter (expected … Continue reading Onward and Upward

Today I finished sewing the binding on my feed sack table runner. I’m pleased with the way it turned out! And now a new plan. I’ve decided that, given my project progress is slow—steady, but slow—daily updates are unnecessary. A bit of a grind, really and boring even for me. So I think I’ll try … Continue reading Day Eighteen
My feed sack table runner is nearing completion and I’ve added two more 12-inch blocks to my crumb quilt pile.

I’m building a collection of Cleveland area prints by local artists. This is my new favorite—a commemorative print of the 101st anniversary of the Holy … Continue reading Day Fifteen
More crumb blocks today. I’ve decided the best way to move ahead is with 12-inch blocks. It will make the final construction easier and faster, I hope. A stack is in progress. The one very nice thing about the mindless piecing of crumb blocks is that it allows me to listen to an audiobook. Today … Continue reading Day Fourteen
Sewed for several hours today. My crumbs blocks are slowly morphing into jigsaw pieces as I try to join them together in some semblance of rows.
More of the same today, so no more pix. Tomorrow I might have to change things up and try something new…
Worked several hours on crumb blocks today, but I’ve come to the realization that if you’ve seen one of these blocks, you’ve pretty much seen them all… So I’ve shared instead a photo of my crocheted blanket which is coming along. I’m using Bernat Blanket Yarn that I really love. It is soft and very … Continue reading Day Eleven
