I have been so busy this week and getting quite a bit done, too. Yesterday I put together all of my tax stuff for my home business so that Hubby can start on the taxes this weekend. What a job. I promise not to wait until the last minute for this years taxes (fingers crossed I can stick to this one) I have also been getting in some stitching.
First, I finished this over the weekend:
The colors remind me of cotton candy! Love it. I have so many balls of scarf yarn, and my goal is to get them all stitched up by the end of the year. I have already stitched several and gave them away. But not a big dent in my pile yet.
I am still stitching on the Mira Mystery. I picked up section 3 over the weekend. I am still on section 1, so I had better get moving on this one. Here is where I left it last night:
I also picked up my back ordered Weeks Dye Works Threads so I am trying to fill in the blanks. Mostly the green vines and the darker green leaves.
While out shopping this weekend, hubby bought me these:
I’m not sure I would be any good at knitting and crocheting little things and turning them into something, but I love a lot of the items in each of the books. The items on both covers are really interesting and pretty. I’d like to give them both a go sometime.
And while out shopping, I picked up some yarn and a pattern for a baby blanket. I have a baby shower coming up in a few weeks and I wanted to make the Mama to be a blanket for her baby boy that will be here soon. Her nursery colors are Turquoise, purple and brown. I had quite the time trying to find those colors in a baby yarn or sport yarn. I spent so much time looking for patterns and then yarns to match. So I ended up picking worsted weight Red Heart Yarn. This is what I ended up with:
I already love the pattern and it was quite easy to memorize. So I will be able to take it on the go if I need to. Just hope I can finish before the shower. Oh and I am the photographer at that shower! No, I am not a photographer. I just love to take pictures. So the mother of the Mom to be asked if I would come and photograph the shower. I am really nervous about doing it. Not something I have done before. I have so many “what if’s” in my head, but now I am telling myself to just do what I would do at any family function. So I will try. Then I will teach the Mom to scrapbook the pictures so that she can make a scrapbook to give to her daughter when the baby is born.
So, that is all my stitching news for now. What projects are you working on?
