April projects

Been busy trying to finish my shawl, I want to enter it in our Homemakers cultural arts show, it needs to be turned in tomorrow, but I just blocked it and finished weaving in the ends. It is a bit shorter than I would have liked, I used Knit Picks Bare and the pattern is by Nancy Bush Estonia lace.

I also finished the April Bunny Hill block and the 6th block for Home sweet home.

I took a class "Scrap Therapy" I was so disappointed!! I expected to get tips on organizing and preparing my scraps, but all we received was a plastic container, a pin and the cutting directions for a scrap quilt, and told to cut squares, it was such a waste of time, I could have cut the squares at home and saved myself $10.00 and a 150 mile round trip. This class is required to take any of the other scrap therapy classes and for what?? I know how to cut fabric!

Gorgeous lace and amazing house blocks. I'm working on house blocks right now, but they're not as pretty as yours are. I'm also on a lace knitting kick.
