And Sew It Goes

and goes and goes! The thirty squares for the lapghan are complete and the piecing has begun. Well, more than begun. The horizontal seems are almost finished leaving the verticals. Since I've never pieced like this before, I am sort of making it up. Seems to be coming out just fine. A final round to create an edging and all will be complete. Off to the Veteran's Home it will go. And wouldn't you know it I have plans to make a second one thanks to finding this pattern yesterday? The patriotic theme convinced me it would be perfect for those "retired" soldiers who served our country so well.

In other news, I've joined the "Yarn in a Tea Cup exchange" hosted by Zoe. The name says it all. Exchangers will send enough yarn for a small project and a tea cup/mug. Right up my alley (as you may have guessed from the tea cup I just purchased). This is the first exchange I'll do where the giftee and recipient are not secret. I'm really looking forward to getting to know two new people and finding the perfect items to mail. Well, back to sewing...
