Project 26: It’s Friday already?

July 15, 2011

Wow, this week flew by and I didn’t get a single thing done. I worked a bit on the quilt but I still have nothing to show you. The only plarn in my house is a small ball I had made last year. I did embroider a few items for a baby shower tomorrow. I’ll show you those after the recipient gets them. Tomorrow evening I have plans to help a friend make cushions for a chair.

My thumb is feeling a lot better. Next week I think I’ll tackle a thumb-intensive project that I’ve been putting off since my injury, and of course I’ll need to finish the quilt and make some more plarn.

Watch this space!

This week’s project is less of a whole project and more of a project ingredient. I’m going to make plarn. Plarn is yarn made from plastic grocery bags. If I can make enough by the end of the week I may attempt a project using it, but that depends on how quickly I can finish this quilt.
