WiP Wednesday

I was thinking today. For me to have been so prolific with quilting in 2011, I hardly produced anything in 2012. I really have begun to think that putting myself under a lot of stress to finish a few that were "due" took some of the fun out of it for me. I have sort of been throwing myself into crochet again to keep myself  "craftily occupied" and the quilting urge has slowly been coming back. While it continues to surge, here are a few of the things I'm working on in the meantime.
A crocheted throw for my daughter (currently about 28" long so I've got a bit more to go!)
I started with two row lines of color with alternating two row lines of black. I've graduated up to 4 row lines and will do 6 row lines next so the colors are gradually getting larger. There will definitely have to be some blocking done on this one.

A basket weave throw for me in gray
Sorry about the picture quality. Next time I will not be using the cell phone! This one is currently about 15" long.

And a new scarf for me.
This is a v-stitch cluster and done in bamboo yarn. So incredibly soft! Just love it! 
I do have a few more things done but they have to be sent off so I don't want to show any hints here until they reach their destination.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced Ooh pretty! Lee got a new button!

I love the basket weave. I need to learn how to do that one of these days.

Well even if you aren't quilting you are still doing something creative and that is always a good thing.

Glad to find another quilter from Ga. Glad to now be following you.
