Last night was spent working on my Botanika block. It's actually of a basketful of roses. It's about half done (50 pieces had been stitched on as of last night). This block has over 90 pieces in it....and I'm really loving the way it's turning out....even though it doesn't have near the contrast with fabrics that it should.
Yesterday I had cast on for my sweater....twice! 15 rows into it and I ended up getting lost in the lace pattern....even though it is a very simple 8 stitch repeat. So I frogged what I had done and started again. Didn't make it quite as far the second time before I got lost. So frogged what I had done and now it's sitting there waiting for me to start yet again. I'm sure one of these times it will actually click and then there will be no stopping me. :)

I finished the hand quilting on my dragonfly wall hanging last night. Felt great to put those final stitches in! Now to find the perfect binding fabric and get a binding on it. This has been such a fun quilt to work on. I've learned so much along the way....and discovered how much I have missed the hand quilting. Looks like I will be pulling out another UFO and finishing it up. I started hand quilting it who knows when. I think it's time to finally get it done. I will be sure to share a picture of my dragonfly wall hanging just as soon as the binding is on.
