The End is in Sight
Whether it is knitting or sewing I always find one weekend where I spend my time finishing up those projects that are so close to being finished. This weekend I spend my time starting the last phase of a wall quilt and knitting I-cords for a shoes-lace and a bracelet.
The I-Cord Bracelet
The Bracelet I have yet to jazz up with some charms and beads, and the last shoelace was completed at last.
I ran across this I-cord pattern years ago that I couldn’t even tell you what magazine I found it in. This is the first time I’ve tried them out and I have to say I like the results and it’s a great way to use up scrap yarn.
Celtic Wall Quilt
I’m so very close to finishing this lovely quilt that I’m almost overwhelmed. It has been an epic journey, and I have learned so much along the way.
What I have left to do: Because I have endeavored to make this quilt look like a stained glass window. My next job is to sew on the shards of glass that will surround the middle celtic knot. The problem is with the top stitching at the points. I’ll be using a different colour thread that will compliment the coloured fabric and will be using a zigzag top stitch with a shortened stitch length. For the next couple of day I’ll be sitting at my sewing machine attacking this problem from different direction to see what works best. Then I can sandwich the whole thing together, top stitch and bind, I think a binding in white. After that there is another one to come, and that quilt should go faster because I’ve ironed out all the wrinkles.
I have to say I love the feeling when I finish up a project, such satisfaction!
Question: What charms should I put on my Bracelet? Need to go shopping.
God Bless & Sew, Knit On
I will post pictures of the finished wall quilt.
