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.
