A different project

Canvas Trillium - Diane Scott
Yes, this is a different project that I started this week.  This is a class that I took at the Creative Festival and it was called Canvas Trillium.  The pattern was what caught my attention and that meant that it was a class that I had to take this year.  I know that I have worked on canvas before so that wasn't something new for me but it was the pattern that I liked.

As you can see I really didn't get too much done but the class was only three hours and by the time you get the canvas on your stretcher bars and the instructor does a lot of explaining it means you don't have a lot of time to actually work on the project.  I know that I want to finish this project so may be working on it on and off over the next couple of weeks until it is finished.  I know that once I sit done and work on it I should be able to get quite a bit of it worked on.

The class was offered on Friday afternoon so I decided to take two classes this year and this was one of them.  The other class I took was Toss and Tumble Colourways with Charles Voth.  The second class was dealing with how to work with scraps of yarn and be able to put colours together that you normally wouldn't think when together to make a lapghan.  I now have a pattern and some ideas so will see what happens.

So today I am going to try and do a bit of crafting but will have to see if I can fit that in with everything else that I should be doing.

Thanksgiving weekend progress

This weekend was a three day weekend which meant a little bit of time for stitching. 

This week I hope to be able to spend a bit of time stitching but this will all depend on how much work needs to get completed.  I know that it is going to be a busy week for me as it is only a four day work week instead of the normal 5 days to get things done. 
 Part of the weekend was Thanksgiving Dinner with the family and also some more organizing around the apartment.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and you were able to get things that you wanted to get done completed.

Now to get some work done that needs my attention today and then will see if there is any time for stitching this evening.
