Goals Update #1

I have been working toward some of the stitching goals I set for myself, and so far, so good. Here is just one of them.




I picked out a fabulous Nora Corbett pattern, "Gardenia."  I am so smitten with this design! I opted for something from Corbett's smaller Pixie Couture line rather than one her larger Mirabilia patterns (like I had originally planned) because I thought I had a better chance of completing the smaller Pixie pattern. 

I've also been poking around the internet in search of a good granny square tutorial, and I found one that clicked with me. I will share my very first granny square with you soon. Stay tuned!

You've made a lot of progress. I will love to watch it grow. When you say 'granny squares', so you mean crochet?

Glenda said...

Wow, you're coming along on that! Those colors are so gorgeous, Kristi; the package cover doesn't do justice to just how pretty the floss colors are. Is this project what you're primarily spending your stitchy time on right now?

Kristi said...

Thank you, ladies. :) Yeah, I am referring to crochet. I thought I had granny squares figured out, but I guess I didn't, lol. Somehow, the method I used to make them yesterday fell out of my head today! I will try again tomorrow.

Yep, Gardenia is taking up most of my stitchy time these days. Shes's been my companion during my Parenthood binges.

I was going to do an update too but I haven't even worked on any of my goals. :(

I agree with everyone else… the colors are super fab! Looking forward to seeing your crochet work.
