Happy Humpday!

Sewing

I am very excited to say that my farm is slowly but surely growing! I have 5 chickens and 4 cows that just need some appliqué to add some pizzazz.

Up next is sheep, which I have four already cut. I am so excited to make sheep. *sigh* I love sheep!

After the sheep are done, I will be making some pigs because no farm is complete without some oinkers. I think the pig will be the last of the animals and the rest of the space will be pin-wheels, etc.

I have officially set my goal to have the top done by Easter, so about 2 months. I should have plenty of time… Right?

Knitting

I have been making so great headway on my Ribbed Beanie; I only have about 5 cm until I can start decreasing!

Hopefully I’ll finish in the next week.

A Progress Filled Week

Happy Hump Day Everyone! I hope everyone is staying warm; it has warmed up to a solid 4* here.

I am happy to say that this week has been a lot more productive than last week. I spent a whopping four hours making Lori Holt’s Vintagey Farm Girl Tractor. Even though it took forever I am ecstatic over the results!

I used the classic John Deere yellow and green for a few reasons. One: who doesn’t love John deere? Two: its an American classic. And three (which is probably the most important): my grandpa.

Grandpa was in high school when he bought his first tractor, a 1937 John Deere. The tractor was soon too small to do any mass amounts of farm work, but he still kept the little tractor. When he retired, his tractor got a new life and a fresh coat of paint. This quilt block is more or less dedicated to this family tractor.

There’s something about a tractor that I just love!

In between sewing, I’ve been trying to finish up my first knitting project, my Sherlock Scarf. My goal is to be done my Friday!

I am onto my second skein, so I’m officially half way done! Whoop!

I can’t help but laugh because I want my scarf finished so I can move onto another project. But here’s the funny part: I remember telling a friend that I started knitting and he warned me that I would want to move on to bigger and better things. I scoffed at it then, but look where I am now!
