I'm in the middle of knitting a birthday present for someone so I can't post that.
I'm knitting slipper that will be felted. They don't look like much at this point so there is no reason to post it.
I have a pair of socks. Those hang out in my car so I have an emergency project.
I can post the latest pictures of His Eye is on the Sparrow.
I am nearly done with the body of the piece and will be able to work on the border.
Katy just went back today after Spring Break. She has less than two month until graduation. She is ready to be done but, she will get hit by the graduation depression and how much life will change.
Hope you had a good weekend!
The weather was decent here this weekend: sunny but on the cool side.
Have a wonderful week.
Keep on Stitching!
P. S. check out victorian motto sampler shoppe Give a way She always has wonderful give a ways.
I am not saying that With His Eye on the Sparrow isn't fraught with mistakes because...oh boy it is!
Today's post: What a difference eleven days make! I'm done with the left upper portion.
I just hope when I get to the border everything sort of lines up.
Went to the Stitching Bee last weekend and wouldn't you know it, I just don't have enough patterns. Three more just had to come home with me: Prairie Schooler Farm Fresh, Notforgotten Farm Sepia Sampler and Stacy Nash True Love Sampler Bag and Pinkeep.
Kendra is at the Nashville Market and I had submitted a wish list before she went. I haven't finished any of the ones from last years list.
My vow: No more big stuff for a while so I can work on some little things.
Taking a class for the next few weeks on how to make felted slipper clogs. Here is my main color, I have a tan I'm using for around the opening and maybe the sole.
I love this color!
Probably close to DMC 503.
That is a never ending source of amusement to my husband, when I look at a color and rattle off the DMC equivalent.
That's when you know you have been doing this too long.
Just got home from seeing London Has Fallen.
What a fun flick! Lots of action!!
The weather here is fabulous today and suppose to be all week.
While we were in La Crosse, Katy and I walked from our hotel to the Antique Mall around the corner. I love this place and have bought a few things over the years, a Scandinavian box, picnic baskets and of course, buttons.
You can get a good amount of buttons for a few dollars.
Buttons really come in handy when finishing projects.
This time I got two bags of buttons. One bag is all white buttons and the other was a mixed bag of buttons. Today I cleaned them. I got all the old thread off and then washed them. Two of the buttons cracked in the process but, it really needed to be done because they were very dirty.
Some select pictures of my new buttons. There really is quite a selection. These are the favorites.
I love the way old bone buttons look.
There are a lot of shell buttons in the bag. Some of them appear quite old. I like the one with the carving on it. La Crosse had been a mecca in the shell button industry in the day. They were made out of freshwater clams from the Mississippi River.
I'm not exactly sure what this would be called. It has a button top but, looks like it would pierce fabric and be more like a stud?
Just a variety of bone, wood, shell, and metal. The grey with the color rims, is metal. I love the little one just below the dark brown has a sunburst. That dark brown one has some carving on it too.
I should have enough buttons to last for a while. I was looking for just the white buttons but, I'm really glad I got both bags.
Hope you have had a restful weekend.
Keep on Stitching.
