Saturday Plans - The Results

Yesterday I listed some things I wanted to finish.  I think I got most of it done!
Here are the five blocks I sewed for The Block Blowout (Quilts of Valor.) 

Then I finished my weaving piece.

It hasn't been washed yet.  So there are a few ends poking out. I don't clip those until it is washed.
I tried something different with the ends since I am planning to sew this into a project.
I don't know if you can see it, but I used the stitch that looks like a zigzag with a straight stitch on both sides of it. (What is that called anyway?) It seems to have finished it off nicely.
I don't know if you can see it here, but in the red yarn there is a sparkly thread.
Hmmmm, I can't see it on my monitor.  Also some of the black has tiny sequins on it.  I guess I was in a bling-bling mood. LOL.
Have a blessed day!

Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated. Foolishly posted "hate speech" comments will be swiftly removed.

That is an overcast stitch to resemble a serger stitch. Your weaving looks great.

The weaving is calling me. I think I can do it. But really no...must resist another hobby (read that as addiction).;)
Your blocks are so pretty. I love the blues with the yellows.
Looks like a very productive day.

You are already creating gorgeous creations on your loom! I can see the sparkly in the red if I look real close :)

Wow, I loved it before I saw the words "sparkly" and "sequins"....now it really has my attention!
