Orange Crush Update: I finally got a start on my Orange Crush mystery quilt (although I don't know how well that name will match my quilt.....especially since I don't have any orange in it whatsoever!!). I have 50 of the 4-patches done. Just need to finish sewing up the other 100 units and I will be ready for step #2. I have decided to work on my split 9-patch in between steps. With any luck I can finish up two quilts.
Knitting Update: Since I had so much of the mohair/jacob blend yarn left....and it was surprisingly fun to work with (didn't shed near as much as I thought it would), I have decided that it would make a lovely felted teddy bear. I cast on for one a couple of nights ago. Have one arm done already. I'm using the Marigold Bear pattern by Fiber Trends (www.FiberTrends.com) . I'm doing mine so it is all one color and may even make a felted hat for it once the bear itself is done.
