Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party!
Last night we turned our clocks ahead for daylight savings time. And for some reason, the research indicates that the time change results in an increase in heart attacks and car accidents. Which is all the more reason to do things s-l-o-w-l-y today!
I have been making slow progress on my new knitted dishcloth. These are such great little projects and I'm so happy that Gail introduced this hand work to me. Some rows are tricky, but when I complete a hard row, I feel like I have run a marathon and won! All this happens by just sitting in my chair, winding yarn, moving the needles and counting correctly ! LOL
I had a problem with my hand quilting project this week. I finished quilting one direction of the crosshatch and when I drew the lines for the other direction, I made a measuring error. Instead of 3/4" spacing, I made one measurement 1". I didn't realize it until I was at that line. Uh oh! Do you see it?
I was really mad at myself for a couple of days until I remembered that one of the benefits of using the blue marking pen is that you can (hopefully) make it disappear!
I used a damp cloth to remove the blue marks and most of the lines disappeared easily. Then I redrew the remaining lines with the consistent 3/4" measurement. This error really took the wind out of my sails for this project but I am ready to begin quilting again.
What are your hands creating this week? We'd love to see your slow progress and cheer you on!
