I just wanted to take a break from packing to get a blog post squeezed in. I’m leaving to teach a retreat this weekend at Lake Beauty Bible Camp, so that is what I am packing for. Hopefully I will see some of you there! In the meantime I have a couple of things that I have finished up lately.
First up, is this cute panel made from the fabric line “Frolic” by Sandy Gervais. My sister is helping to redecorate their church nursery and this little quilt is going to hang in the sleeping room. She did the assembly and asked me to quilt it for her.
This picture shows the quilting better. She asked for something simple, but I just couldn’t bring myself to meander this one. There are so many places to do some fun things! As you can see, I tried to bring out the details in the panel.
While I was working on this quilt, I just fell in love with this fabric line. I mean, just look at that great stripe for the binding! You know how I love stripes. I now have this fabric in my stash. Now, I just have to figure out a project. If you are interested in this panel or fabric, I got mine at the Flying Goose Quilt Shop in New London, MN. There number is 320-354-3535, if you need some for your stash too!
This little guy dropped in while I was taking these photos. He looks right at home with this quilt!
The other thing I finished up is this ~
The pattern is the Chinese Lace Pullover by Angela Hahn. The pattern is well written and very easy to follow. I’m working on another one of her patterns too, but I have a ways to go yet to finish it.
I love this lace design ~
I also love the color of this yarn (Creative Focus Linen by Nashua Handknits.) The color is so rich and has just enough red with the purple to really warm up the color.

It’s always so much fun to finish something. I don’t know why, but I think I love completing projects even more than I like starting new ones. There is always so much to do and somehow I can’t be at rest unless something is finished. The problem is, I have a long line of project that are just waiting for me to cast on . . . . so the cycle continues! How about you? Do you prefer starting or finishing?
Until next time – Have a great weekend!
