Yesterday was a very productive day. I was able to do the first 5 items on my crafty to do list and interspersed other non-crafty tasks within. Then we had a wonderful dinner catching up with friends we hadn’t seen since the beginning of summer.
Today will be a mixed day of getting ready for the upcoming week, crossing things off my crafty to do list and Game of Thrones.
Here’s today’s crafty list:
#1 – wash and fold new fabric
#2 – A Rainbow Garden – spend some time applique-ing the first set of pieces on. Here’s a picture from my Sunday stash post earlier today.

Block 8 – cut the pieces and pressed the paper onto the wool fabric
#3 – Maxwell Bag – I wasn’t able to do this task item yesterday so it’s closer to the top of the list today. The next steps are to cut the rope to size for the handles, cover it with soft and stable, make the fabric tube and cover the rope with the fabric tube. I want to get these tasks done before my next bag class this coming Saturday.
The outer and inner parts put together
#4 – Starting Point Shawl – Yesterday, I was only able to do one front row. I’m in the section that does a lot of PTBL and KTBL (purl through the back look and knit through the back loop) and that takes a lot of concentration from me. I only have 1 row left in this section and then I can move onto the next color which is much easier. So today I want to do that last row and the next two rows in the new section. I also need to take a new picture.

#5 – secret project – hand sew the binding
#6 – Raining Cats and Dogs – spend some time hand quilting this project and apparently take a new picture. The last picture I have of this project was from last year.
#7 – Kimono – continue working on it. The plan is to do a right side and a wrong side on each sleeve every day. I hope by the time I make it out to knit night at my LYS, I’ve got the right sleeve done and I can concentrate on the left sleeve.
#8 – Cross Stitch – work more on Mama’s Bukid.
#9 – August socks – do a couple of the 4-row repeats. Yesterday I finished by 7th repeat so I need 5 repeats to do. At that point, I’ll try it on and hopefully, I can start on the toes this week.
#10 – And if I have time, pull out my pajama pants and get to the next step. To be honest, I do not think I’ll have the brain power to do this if I get to task #10. But I notice that if it’s on my to do list, I will get to it at some point.
