I’ve been having so much fun doing more handwork recently!
I’ve been working a little on an embroidery block for my sister’s baby quilt. My mom always makes a baby quilt for each of her grandchildren when they are born, and I sometimes help with a few blocks.
I took this Simple HeadWrap project idea and changed it up a little to make an ear warmer to replace mine that has gone missing.
I still want to make the Simple HeadWrap exactly as the pattern states and hope to do that soon. I’m really happy with how the ear warmer turned out and it’s going to come in handy during these cold days we’ve been having!
I also completed another dishcloth.
This pattern is so easy to make and since I’ve gotten quicker at knitting, I can finish one of these in a few days — just in the little snippets of time and as we’re reading the Bible together as a family in the evenings.
And finally, this cup cozy is my favorite project of the week. I took this DIY Cup Cozy Pattern and changed it up a bit. I’m not completely happy with the buttons and botton-holes.
So I’m working on perfecting that with a second cup cozy project and will hopefully show that to you in next week’s handwork post.
(And I also want to actually follow the DIY Cup Cozy pattern exactly as written — but I fear I’m starting to follow knitting patterns about as successfully as I follow recipes… or don’t follow them! :))
Did you complete any handwork projects this week? If so, I’d love to hear about your projects. And if you blogged about them, leave your links in the comments.
