~ ADVANCED STUDIES PROPOSAL ~
Project Name: Wool Coat
Brief Description: I have been wanting to make a wool coat/jacket for a while but kept holding out for the perfect green wool. Alas, it seems to not exist. But I found a burgundy runner-up and decided to give it a go. It is a pricey fabric so I will need to do some prefitting and alterations in hopes of not wasting any of the fabric. My goal is to have it done in a few months, but I also know I tend to take a lot longer on my big projects than I plan. Either way-I figure starting in Feb it shoud be ready to wear next winter

Thank you! I can’t wait to see your wool coat!

Project Name & Page Link: Using my phone as the pattern
Brief Description: Im participating in a SAL this year, and each week we get a new piece of the pattern. And for this smaller project (takes somewhere 30-60 min for each part), I use my phone to see the pattern. (I asked a friend to take a photo on my embroidery and phone, so you can see how I use it)
@noodle that picture frame is awesome and I’m so happy to see your place come together
@skrutt I’m always in awe of anyone who can knit socks!
@tendstowardschaos I love that knitted sweater. The colours are such fun
Advanced studies proposal
Project. Now that I’ve finished two advanced studies projects this year, I’m on a roll. A slightly, very slightly, less ambitious one now.
Going to make an early 16 century Venetian outfit. Big dress, silly huge sleeves(which I adore!!) And probably a lined velvet cote to go on top.
I don’t think I posted pictures of me wearing my completed medieval russian garb. It won an garb competition at an event this weekend
AH! So awesome, Edel! Congrats on the well-deserved win!
And your next proposal has been added to the AS project log. Happy making!
Thanks @Edel and your outfit is amazing!!!
@Edel that is an amazing outfit! And congrats on winning!
Your costume is beautiful, @Edel! Congratulations on winning the contest!
You look amazing Edel! Beautiful work my friend.
I added a link to the red velvet mix to my post for the red velvet cupcakes.
Class or Challenge Title: Detention Challenge - Stash
Project Name & Page Link: Wish Me Chevrons Hat
Brief Description: My niece-in-law is having a birthday next month and I hadn’t made her a hat yet. So, this is the year she gets one! I used this pattern again - I really like it! Quick and cute. The yarn is from stash…a squishy hank of Malabrigo Rios that I bought over a year ago just because it was gorgeous (I still have one more in the same colorway).
Gorgeous! I think I’m addicted to malabrigo.
Thank you! Me, too. It’s divine.

Project Name & Page Link: Woven Heart Block (Pattern)
Brief Description: I’ve wanted to make this quilt block pattern for ages. I love both it’s simplicity and how you immediately know it’s a representation of those woven heart baskets. I also love that I managed to scrape together an hour this morning to put it together, just in the nick of time to make it for the Quiltalong’s Block of the Month submission. LOL

Class or Challenge Title: Iron Chef - Brazil
Project Name & Page Link: Brazilian Corn Chowder
Brief Description: As Godzilla’s arrival quickly approaches, I’m attempting to make some big batches of various meals for dinner, freezing the rest for when Jim & I are too tired to cook. Meanwhile on the days I swim laps, I come home so tired that I just don’t want to cook. So I’m trying to make those large batch meals in the crockpot, early in the day. I followed this recipe pretty closely, subbing in bacon for the sausage, because that’s what I had on hand, and using coconut milk in place of heavy cream to make it lactose free.
Ah! Your block came out so awesome @MistressJennie! And that soup!
Which brings me to…The Iron Chef Challenge for March is…
