En Provence and Ringo Lake Update: More Progress!
Once again, I am joining the crew over at Em's Moving It Forward Monday!
As before, it's been "all Bonnie Hunter, all the time" around here in terms of the projects I've been working on. While the stitching lately hasn't been as consistent as in previous weeks, what was accomplished on the days I did sew helped me hit two milestones. For the "En Provence" mystery, I've got the center of the top all sewn together:
Now there's only a few rows of border units to be sewn and this top will be finished!
For "Ringo Lake", I've got half of the total number of blocks needed sewn up:
It's gratifying to see the block stack growing, this one could also be a top by the start of Spring.
At one point I needed something else to leader/ender to push those other two through so I pulled out some strips and was able to finish another Scrappy Trips block!
These have been fun to make and I look forward to the day when this one can become the main project.
I had planned to only sew a few of the mystery blocks a day but once the "En Provence" rows started coming together, I was anxious to see the center get done so pushed forward to getting a whole row done on those days when I did get to sew. I have an idea for slightly altering the borders for it so finishing the borders may move a little slower than the rows did. So once again, I'm hoping to try to finally start on my big 2018 goals.
Up to now I've been stalled on moving forward with my wholecloth project but have found a resource that seems to have the inspiration I was looking for to help me take it in the direction I want to go. With any luck, that project will be the subject of next week's "Move It Forward" post. Fingers crossed!
