In the spirit of moving past simple knits and purls, I’m following along with my dear friend Katie’s 12×12 monthly motif program. It is such a neat concept.

I’m planning to sew my 12 swatches into a throw for our bedroom – which is currently undergoing a make-over, and waiting on me to get off my duff and tackle the curtains. In the meantime, I continue both my mission and bedroom makeover with this first month’s assignment.
