Two weeks ago I wrote about blocks I'm making for a current swap. I've managed to send out two, and have several more made (which I'll post at a later date), but since I received several comments concerning seeing the blocks I receive in the swap, I thought I'd post the first four:
These two were the first blocks I received earlier this week. I really like the color combination - more on the green side, with the browns as accent. These next two I received yesterday:
Aren't they lovely? I am enjoying the creativity that each person is bringing to their choices. Can you all see the froggy color theme? I've already got some ideas on how I might put my blanket together, but I'll know more once I've received all of my blocks. We have until the end of September to mail them out - good thing, because I need to kick my own block making into high gear.
On a slightly different topic, there's a knit and crochet show going on right now in Reno. The Executive Director of the Crochet Guild of America, Karen Knies, contacted Crochet! Magazine a few weeks back to ask if Karen might have my La Symphonie Jacket Wrap sent to her for wearing during the days of the show. I was thrilled by the request - so if anyone should happen to see Karen this weekend wearing a red cardi that looks like something they saw in a magazine ... well, they'd be correct!
Now don't forget to make it to Andrea's blog show this Friday, cause you never know what's going on with the fiberistas over there.
And have a great weekend, everyone!
