Works in Progress

Have you been wondering what I’ve been doing in the evenings?

Well, I’ve been working hard at my Creative Writing class that I’m taking.

But also…

I’ve been making my six blocks for the 3×6 bee. Since I don’t have a sewing machine nor electricity to run it at the moment, I decided to applique hexagrams for my bee mates. Here they are, finished and ready to be mailed:

I’ve also been working away on this little crib- or “blankie”-sized blanket. I saw the green yarn in Wall-Mart and was drawn to the colour – such a pretty, springtime green 🙂 It doesn’t have a destination yet…maybe it will be a Because You Matter blanket.

I am also still stitching away on my sister’s quilt. This is an old photo, but it’s coming along nicely and I think you’re going to like it when I finally finish it and do the big photo reveal. I’m going to start pushing myself with the goal of finishing before I leave Whitehorse. I’d like to do the photos on the S.S.Klondike if Parks Canada will let me in during off-season…but before I can do that, I have to finish it, lol!

And last but not least…here is the sunset from my deck last night. Oh, how I love living at Fox Lake!

    Your blocks are beautiful and I love the blankie. It’s a lovely colour and it looks really snuggly 🙂
