Picking up the Pace

 I used my circle template to draw in all the arcs I need to turn the border on this quilt
 into a scalloped edge.
  I put a piece of masking tape on the place I used to mark the depth
 so I didn't worry about making one too short!
After drawing them all around to make sure I wouldn't run into any problems,
I then began cutting them out with my scissors.  
The binding steps are next!
As it so often happens, I had to buy some more yarn to make the scrap afghan!
I really liked the pop of color from the warm colors, coral and fuschia, 
and of course, the periwinkle blue!
I can pick up the pace on this work again!c

Try #3 is going the best yet for that knitting machine sweater!
(no photo-it would look the same to you!)
It is going to fast and problem-free now,
I'm giddy!
I hope to have a finished summer tank soon!

  3. I did a scalloped edge on a quilt that Daddio was gifting to someone once and boy was it a head ache. It turned out beautifully though. Totally worth the trouble. It does add so much to the overall look.

So pleasurable to yield a tiny needle for this embroidery.   It is in an eight inch hoop for scale.   I did all of the coneflowers first, as...
