My spool blocks wall quilt is coming along.  I am really enjoying making this pattern.  I'm using charm squares from Basic Grey to make a variety of "threads" on the spools.  It is one of those designs that are fun and easy to make.

Here are a few of the blocks laid out on my sewing room floor

On the knitting front, I've made progress on the boat neck sweater for my youngest grand.  

It is loosely based on the pattern you see in the magazine, which was designed for a baby.  I've changed the size, the color palette, and am only putting two stripes on the body of the sweater.  This pattern is a good design for my first attempt at a sweater because it is basically just two different size rectangles, one size for the front and back, and one size for the sleeves.  The yarn is an inexpensive cotton which shows the stitches well, is easy to use, and knits up quickly.

So those are the projects I am working on right now.  No strain on the brain, just enjoying the process.  What have you been working on?

Happy Crafting ♥

  1. Your spools are coming out wonderful. Can't wait to see the finish quilt!

  2. the spools are really adorable, do you know of a tut or something that would help someone learn how to do this?

    I am stopping by from the WIP hop, hop on by if you can!
