June Finishes

I had two goals I wanted to work on in June: to assemble my crochet blanket, and to sew a piece up on my long arm.  And I was able to check off both!

The piece that I worked on the machine ended up not being the the runner I had intended, but a piece of strawberry fabric destined to be cut up for some pot holders.  The choice was ultimately dictated by a lack of free bobbins on which I could load the grey thread, so I quickly fired off an order for a dozen more bobbins and stitched up some yummy berries in the meantime.

Stitching on the last square!

And in slow stitching, I successfully finished my first crochet blanket!  In part because of how long it took, I feel a huge sense of accomplishment just for making it to the end!  I just attached the last square, tied off the remaining threads, and gave it a good cuddle test.  It passes!  I think I'll just hang out under here until dinner!

Linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday.


  1. Ohhh. I love how your afghan came out! I have one project I started with them but have yet to finish it. I think I will modify the pattern I was using and take it out sometime soon for a dusting off and see how it can get to a finish. Thanks for the reminder of that project.

  2. Congrats on your first afghan. It is very pretty.

  3. Congrats, the crochet blank is beautiful. Love the colors.

  4. Beautiful afghan! Enjoy your well deserved cuddle!

  5. Well done. Doesn't it feel good to accomplish the task.
