One more new start

I've started a new cross stitch pattern this week - another one from my friend that I received for Christmas. We have flocks of red headed parrots in my neighborhood that make a huge ruckus squaking each dawn and dusk as they feed. So I am a huge fan of parrot patterns.

What I'm working on Wednesday

I've started another Bonnie Hunter quilt: Crabapples! This is my absolute favorite pattern and I love working on it.

A new year of crafting

I've kind of been all over the place-crafting wise. I've finished a quilt top designed by Bonnie Hunter:

I also completed cross stitching a pattern that my best friend gave me for Christmas (one of three from my wish list - yea!)

Do you see the mistake in the pattern? I didn't realize it was missing an "F" in the first row until I got to the F. By then it was too late because if you pull out that silk thread it leaves so many tiny bits in it that you can never get them out. And if I inserted it, it was going to throw off the line up of it all. So I just forged ahead and will count it as handmade quirk. :)
