Something New - Hummingbird afghan


I started working on this yesterday.  This is block number five of the Hummingbird afghan.  There is not a lot of stitching on this particular block.  On the other hand, the flowers are all confetti type stitching so it is still a challenge.  Last year I did 67 projects.  I keep a list going all year long so I know how many I have completed by the end of the year.  It also helps when I try to find photos.  So far - 2013 has three projects on the list.  This will be number four.  The last afghan I did took me five years.  I did five or six blocks per year - it was slow.  I could each block as a project.  An afghan project is bulky to work on.  It is best to work on during the winter months.  I do enjoy it.  The stitching is done over one with two threads.  It is DMC floss so no overdyed to deal with.
