On the Wall

I have some things to show in progress.  I haven't been sewing much since the kids and grand kids came to visit.  They stayed 7 days two weeks ago , but I've been trying to catch up on rest and get back into my routine.  
I have done some knitting, finished my green scarf, mittens and wash cloth.  I'm now working on a shawl with the blue yarn I had bought.  I love the color and found a pattern I like.
Still working on Blue Ridge.  I flipped the two quarters to the bottom and started adding blocks.  I'm now back to making blocks.  I did a few more half square triangles and really think I'll have to do more to make enough blocks.

Had to make a few more strip sets to get a few block done for the Folded Fan quilt I started in my last class.I actually had to start cutting dark strips after she talked so much about dark,dark for contrast.
Folded Fans
The contrast does make the folded effect stand out.  I still have a lot to learn about medium.  Up to now I've thought of dark, medium then light.  This kind of quilt needs a real distinction

Then I thought it was time to put out the progress on the Hexie's quilt and see how I was doing.

I've done more work than I thought I had and I'm liking it.  It helps to put it out and see how I'm doing.  Makes me want to work on it more.

My knit finishes below.
