Working towards finishes.

This was the 3rd project I was trying to deliver on the Christmas road trip.  Unfortunately, I tried piecing this when I should have been applique  This created several problems and a learning curve.  I finished the piecing as best as I could to salvage the project.  It is now appliqued onto a brown backing and I'm about to start some quilting.   Machine on the piecing and hand on the background.

I am working on a crochet project.   A cardigan pattern I bought about 4 years ago with some super fine "lace" weight yarn that is extremely challenging to crochet.   Particularly in a moving car.  I'm partially done with body section #4 which is about 1/3 of the way through.

And I am totally amused by the temperature based afghans being posted on Facebook.  I've decided instead to make a quilt instead.   And to further complicate matters (as is my way) I've figured out a plan to include both the high an low each day.  So yesterday's block will be both Blue and Pinky Purple.  We just barely made it out of the Purple today by a degree.

So now back to the studio to try to finish up some UFOs

Fun stuff today! I'm wondering what the finished quilt that sports the medallion is going to look like... And check out this blog post for temperature quilts: Cindy did it for Fresno and St Paul, with both highs and lows. If I didn't have 50+ UFOs, I'd be mighty tempted to join you.
