There's a lot of MAKING going on this week at my house
Even though I'm SITTING around quite a bit
with a broken foot!
It's not THAT bad.
I crochet, sew or knit
while someone ELSE does the dishes!!!
The above afghan is a work in progress
using a NEW TO ME stitch called the spike stitch.
I found instructions on youtube....
My "GO TO" source these days.
It's so much easier to watch instructions
than to READ and try to figure it out.
Why am I making another afghan when I have so many??
If you wondered that...
You're not a MAKER.
I've also been doing a little bit of cooking.....
Hobbling as I go.
We have a garden FULL of produce
that seems to supply most of the FRESH food in our meals.
I LOVE having all the choices my husband
included in the garden this year.
I did a simple stir fry with the vegetables above.
I'm also working on gifts.
Special requests from the kids.
The above coasters are from a pattern on craftsy.
It's a free pattern in my pattern shop.
I made these a bit bigger than the pattern states.
I LOVE to adjust patterns to the particular project.
A little bigger??
JUST....a little bit of math.
I really like the BIG stitches I added to these.
In my opinion...
a LITTLE bit of hand quilting goes a LONG way.
It adds SO much!
Sitting around a lot means you get MORE done...
I just finished this sweet sweater
Thinking about what color yarn to pull out for the next one!!!
This is the 5 hour sweater that takes a LOT longer that 5 hours!!!
It's a classic....
You can find it on Ravelry.
What are YOU making this week???
