I was hoping the cardi would be finished today but I didn't get any knitting done yesterday afternoon/evening. We went over to my co-blogger's place because our respective hubbies were going on a fundraising bike ride. Cops for Cancer hosted a recovery ride and for $10, you got a police escort - no stopping for traffic lights. While the big boys were having fun, I got to play with Gladys' little boys and eat strawberries.
My friend, Ronnie received her package of goodies so I can blog about my secret quilting project. I sent her a small thank you package in exchange for the lovely shawl and fingerless gloves. Her poor koi pond is undergoing some serious repairs so she really needed a little pick-me-up. The parcel contained some Knit Picks goodies along with a quilted wallhanging.
Pattern: Dresden Plate by Patchworks Studio
Size: approx. 25" x 25"
I had lots of fun making this wallhanging. It was relatively quick and simple. You use a double sided fusible to stick the black "leading" to the background fabric (koi). I used a small zig-zag stitch to sew the edges down. I just love that koi fabric. I should get some more for my stash before it's all gone.
Just so I'm not the only one suffering, I have this song stuck in my head.
