I picked up my Carriage House Alphabet series the other night and started in on "Inn". I finished it up the next night and then outlined a couple more borders. I am really hoping to get one of these done a week and then I could see a finish....later this year LOL! I'm using a mixture of DMC and GAST for this design, GAST threads where I think the variegation will show up and DMC in the little bits, where its hardly worth threading a needle.
And on the weekend, I mostly hibernated after a flu bug hit me on Friday. But I got a lot accomplished on LHN's Home of a Needleworker once I started to feel better.
Thank you so much for your comments on the crocheted/knitted blocks from the Cancer Centre. I didn't work on any of the actual blocks, these are all done by the patients themselves with donated materials. My only effort was in putting them together. I had hoped to start on one of the knitted afghans last weekend, but I'm going to try the whipped stitch as suggested by Marg on one set, and the mattress stitch suggested by Glenna on another. Thanks so much for the suggestions and the cool web link too!
And for anyone in the Southern Ontario region, there is a new Cash for Cancer commercial airing on CTV which shows the Durham Regional Cancer Centre. If you happen to catch the commercial look for the therapist who you see full face in the segment ~ its my daughter Carrie! That 30 second spot took them 8 hours to film!
