This may not be all that different since my last link up but I do know that the lighter purple star in the centre is definitely new and so are the white diamond additions. I decided to start adding the white background now so I don't go crazy adding them all at the end. At this point I'm planning on making a lap size quilt.
I've also made a little bit of progress on my Japan sleeves sweater. There are some techniques used in the sweater that are new to me , wrapped short rows and carrying the yarn at the back of the sweater. It's taken me a while to get used to them but I'm thinking that my progress may speed up some as I get used to the techniques.
I won't get much time today to work on my stitching. Our friends Carol and David are camping in our backyard. We'll be having breakfast with them and then we are off to Toronto to visit our daughter. We spent a lot of time in the backyard yesterday as our son came to visit and the three of us spent the afternoon weeding and digging. But alas no time for hand stitches then either.
Maybe next week I'll be able to look at this view while working on some hexie stars
Have you managed to get some slow stitching done outside? I'm linking with Kathy at Slow Stitching Sunday and with Jessica at the Monday Morning Star Count.
