Mom came over today and helped me put away all the Christmas things. I put a roast in the oven and made some rolls for dinner later to eat at her house when my brother came for a visit.
And then I played a bit with the new Accuquilt die-a clamshell.
I had a charm pack from Blank in the Sumatra colorway and in keeping with the rainbow theme, I sliced them all up into clam shells!
I think this is the easy part but tomorrow I will try to piece a row and see how it goes!
Since these are smaller block, only 4 1/2", I will have to figure out a way to beef up the size.
As the top grows, so will the inspiration; well that is the plan anyway!
In the afternoon for some down time, I started a KAL from Alana Dakos. It is a cabled shawl and it is meaty.
Yes, I have several projects on the needles and some are nearing the finish line but I wanted to begin a challenge and I couldn't see any reason to resist!
I am using Artful Yarns Serenade yarn which is mostly Pima cotton (70%) but it is brushed and blended with angora (30%) to make it super soft ! One clue a week will keep it moving along and paced just right!
