I finished 5 squares on my popcorn stitch blanket so far. I know the picture is only showing 4, but it was hard to photograph an odd number, so you get the idea. I'm hoping to make a few more on the train.
I had some help from the dog going through my scrap bin to make several nine patch blocks. I want to set them on point but I'm having a difficult time deciding on a background color. Usually I reach for a cream color (safe), but I feel like all my quilts are starting to look the same. I might need to take a chance on this one and branch out of my comfort zone.
Lastly I'm making a linen project bag to take on the train, and I decided to work a cross stitch motif on the front, found in Alicia Paulson's Embroidery Companion book. Since she lives in Portland, I thought it would be a fun reminder of my upcoming trip. Have a great week wherever you are!
