There's been limited time to stitch over the past couple of days but I did manage to lay down the base for the limbs/twigs for the trees on the left side of the landscape.
and, I've started adding the crocheting to some of the fusion quilt blocks...
Sorry about the picture quality - once more it's a dull day here

I must apologize to many of you who are finding that some of the links I share lead to an over-abundance of ads at your end. It seems I have some sort of 'ad blocker' on my computer (thanks be to the guy who set my computer up) and so I don't see the ads that some of you end up seeing. I don't know of a way to get around it, short of stopping sharing the links altogether. I know many of you enjoy them, so I'm in a bit of a quandry. Please know that I'm aware of the problem but I can't see a remedy from my end of things. For now I will continue with the links and hope that you don't find the ads TOO disturbing.

- For the knitters among you there are lots of free patterns HERE and for the crocheters HERE . A word to the wise though - best pour yourself a cuppa before you go exploring!!
- If you have cause to either increase or decrease stitches evenly in a knitting project THIS calculator (plus the additional link you'll find there) will be very helpful.
- Anything made with recycled denim usually catches my eye and THIS project was no exception.
Today the quote is from George Bernard Shaw..."Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance"
I think the Shaw quotation is that " things you know that ain't so" idea! So true. Don't worry about the links, we'll struggle through!ReplyDelete
I hate that the links are a struggle for anyone though, but I don't see a way around it from this end (short of stopping the links altogether and I hate to do that).Delete
Oh my goodness-this is amazing! So very beautiful.ReplyDelete
Thank you Debra!Delete
Your picture is really coming together so nicely; and I like how the crochet around the squares came out--I like that idea...will you put them together just like a quilt with backing etc? Snow in our forecast--we shall see though as it's 37 degrees right now...ReplyDelete
The fabric squares are backed and sandwiched with batting before the crocheting gets added so once the crocheting is done the quilt is complete. It's necessary to put a row of buttonhole stitch around each square in order to be able to add the crochet edging.Delete
I only dared click on the denim project one, as I didn't want to go down the rabbit hole with the other links....LOLReplyDelete
Ahh - that dreaded rabbit hole! Note that I did warn you though!Delete
Sherry of createology: We are able to weed through ads or not dear so you need not worry about links. I would miss seeing all the wonderful links you share. Your tree limbs are a lot of work. Your squares are looking very nice. Great quote especially for what we read on the internet. Wonderful Wednesday MA.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the input Sherry - just wish I knew how to fix the issue for my followers.Delete
Not to worry here, MaryanneReplyDelete
All the spam I get is my fault for using one of those find the best insurance services. I've never picked up spam from your links.
Your quilting always amazes me. Beautiful stitching!
Interesting. You must have an ad blocker on your computer too.Delete
Just a general PSA: for many years I've used an ad blocker - currently the free version of "AdBlock Plus" - on my laptop. When a particular website (very often news websites) insists that I either turn off the ad blocker or pay for a subscription, I occasionally turn off the blocker just for that page or that website, and OH MY GOSH the number of ads I see is beyond belief and I can barely read the actual content! It makes me realize how much my internet sanity is reliant on the AdBlock Plus. Highly recommended.ReplyDelete
YES! That's what I must have on my computer as well. When I'm asked to turn off my ad blocker I flatly refuse because I know it's going to lead to a ton of grief.Delete
I don't recall any problem with the links you share but I can understand how that would be annoying. I just had to close down and restart because the other browser I use was giving me notifications of viruses but my virus program said I was clear. You never know these days. Love that denim project. One of these days I'm going to have to move on one of the many things I've saved to do.ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about having too many things on the 'wanna-do' list and having difficulty moving on any of them.Delete
Glad the link issue doesn't seem to be an issue for you.
What great projects you have going on now. I am loving your fusion quilt blocks.ReplyDelete
I like having two or three projects on the go because then I can work at whichever one interests me the most. Right now it's the landscape during the day and the fusion quilt in the evenings.Delete
Hello my Friend: I have not had any ads come to me when I click on your links, I have a great ad blocker, anyone can adjust the settings in their computer.ReplyDelete
I like the added edge to the quilt blocks.
I don't know how I managed to end up with an ad blocker on my computer but I suspect the fellow that set it up for me likely took care of it.Delete
I'm liking the edge to the quilt blocks too and now I'm pondering how I'm actually going to put them together
Actually ad blocker is not that hard to put on and there is a free version.ReplyDelete
Love the knitting pattern link I have a feeling I will be going down a rabbit hole with that one. The basket with recycled denim is just awesome. I will need to look at that one a bit closer as well.
So sorry to be sending you down the rabbit hole, but have to admit I like company while I'm down there.Delete
Good to know that putting an ad blocker onto a computer isn't that difficult.
I see the oomph happening, Mary Anne. :DReplyDelete
Reading the comments, I see I didn't realize I could adjust my computer to block ads. Must look in to that. That said, (and don't be hurt) while I've never mentioned ads to you, I don't care for blogs that are heavy with ads, so I don't usually click on the links unless something you've written intrigues me enough to. I figure that is also as a good a solution as anything. If you like posting links, post away! FWIW... when I post links on my blog, like to a recipe or something, I don't give a second thought about their being ads on the blog I might be linking to. I say don't worry about it. I figure ads go with the territory. I just back out if they are too much.
I guess that's a good solution to the issue - if ads bother people, they just don't have to check into the links in the first place. That works!Delete
By all means don't let ads stop you from sharing a great website. I'm supposed to have an ad blocker, its just not very good. Love comparing your landscapes from one post to another.ReplyDelete
Thank you - the general input has been to continue with the links and I'm happy to do so.Delete
I often wonder if you are seeing much change between landscape posts (tomorrow is likely to be a case in point!)
Love, love, love this landscape and you have chosen a beautiful colour yarn to crochet the edges of the fusion blocks. It's going to be beautiful! Have a lovely weekend! Christine xxReplyDelete
Thank you Christine! I'm happy with the green yarn for the quilt - it's another favourite colour of the recipient so hopefully she'll like it too.Delete
