Quilting with Yarn

That's exactly how I feel!  Like I am quilting with yarn...but I think this is way more fun that quilting!  I am thrilled with how this is coming together.  I have unravelled blocks, resewn them together, until finally I'm pretty pleased with the pattern.

 So does Girlie!  I think she likes it. 


I am enjoying watching the bands of colors come to life.  You can see a blue band coming.  I also have some brown in my basket that I will be using.

So, since I have Phoebe's seal approval, I am continuing on!  Also, I am thinking I may make another after this blanket to coordinate with it.  Maybe for my bedroom.  Oh, if I only had more hours in my day to do all I want to do!

I'm off for now, my crochet hook is calling!

This is my first visit and I have really enjoyed seeing all the beautiful colours and yarns you are creating with. I too was bitten by the knitting thing about 2 years ago and, yes, it IS a yarn thing. I am looking forward to my first crochet class soon.

Your work is beautiful; such rich colours.

That little Phoebe! She is just soooooo sweet! Those eyes! You must just eat her up! She looks to be a very devoted companion! Dogs are THE BEST! And I love your blanket too! Wonderful colors and pattern! Can't wait to see those new colors you mention and how they will work into your pattern! x&o, Annette

I have always wanted to try a log cabin design. Yours is so warm and cozy - love the colors! Perfect for warming up on an autumn day. =)
