June Projects

Currently working on (and hoping to finish soon...)

My Jane Sassaman butterfly quilt. This was supposed to be a quick and easy strip quilt to use for picnics and stuff. Then I decided to applique on butterflies. And now I am seriously considering bejeweling them to death. They really want to sparkle. Anyway, the butterflies are coming along and I like how they are turning out (at the moment the butterflies are just tossed on there to get an idea of the effect I am going for):



Also, my first knitting project is nearing completion. Just a couple more rows and binding off. For some reason I worked on this non-stop in Idaho but have hardly touched it back in Atlanta. Could it be the hundred degree weather? Hmmm. I am itching to finish this one soon though because my second knitting project was purchased in Idaho (another scarf, but this one quite fancy) and will be made of the most luxurious alpaca yarn. But I am being very good and not starting it until I finish the first. Do you like my model? This chenille yarn really drapes quite nicely.
