This week I've been working on making hexies for my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. I have all the scrappy flowers hexies ready (210) and all the flower centers (35) ready to be sewn together. Those are the first two rounds of my hexie blocks. I still have to make a lot more hexies for the next two rounds of my blocks. I should have a couple of blocks to show in the next week. This is definitely a long term quilt project.
I'm starting a new knitting project. There is a free pattern on Ravelry called 198 Yards of Heaven that is a pretty lace shawl. I tried to make this shawl a couple of years ago but it did not go well. I finished the shawl but it didn't look anything like it should have. I'm trying again with a skein of my current favorite acrylic yarn (Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Cappucino) and a pair of size 8 knitting needles.
