Here is what I have accomplished this week in the way of stitching:
I had some yarn left from the pidge scarf I made here. So I made this neck scarf. I loved, loved this pattern! 4 rows are repeated over and over to get a look like cables. Every 4th row makes a hole, so instant button holes, as loose or as tight as needed.
I received this pattern free when I purchased some yarn at a shop while on vacation. I will be making more of these. It only takes about 100yds of a worsted weight yarn, so I was able to get 2 neck scarves out of the skein with a little left over. It would make a nice flower or embellishment for a hat or sweater 🙂
Next, I started Johanna’s Royal Holiday on her Large Stitch RR. I feel guilty for having it in my possession for so long and Johanna really needs to see how beautiful it is in person.
I am just starting on her face. I will show the entire RR when I finish it. It is truly a beautiful piece and I plan on duplicating it someday.
And last, my new look. I have decided to go quite a bit shorter with my hair. I had it cut about 6 weeks ago and it was a little difficult for me to go short. But I loved it and wore it wavy through the summer. But now that fall is here, I needed a new shorter look. So I took the plunge yesterday.
It’s very hard for me to take a picture of myself and I cut the top of my head off. Oh well. You can see my new short look. I think I look very business like. Hubby calls it short and sassy. I like it. What have you been stitching on this week?
Kathy just finished stitching on my Round Robin and posted this photo:
Isn’t it just beautiful? I am so geeked about my first Round Robin. One more block to be stitched by Linda and then she will be on her way home to me. I can’t wait to see it in person. I sent it off in January 2012 to be stitched by 7 wonderful stitchers from around the world and it should be returning to me around November. I just melt every time I look at it. I know that it is sparkly and shimmery with all the metallic threads and beading. Everyone has done an awesome job stitching on this one for me. And I know that Linda will do an awesome job on the last fairy too and can’t wait to see her contribution . I will be sure to post here when I get it back .
I finished my block on Erin’s Round Robin this last week and thought I would share with you what I did:
Her theme is Roses and she picked the patterns that she wanted and chose the portions of the pattern that she wanted stitched. I like that. Made it super simple for me. I chose “The Kiss” and I think it turned out lovely. Here is her Round Robin so far:
A very unique piece. Can’t wait to see how it turns out when the last 2 blocks are stitched.
My Round Robin piece is coming along so beautifully! I will try to get a picture and post it here so that you can see. Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.
I finished my block on Catherine’s Round Robin last week. Her theme is Roses and I stitched Damask Roses. Here is my block:
Here is the finished piece.
My lady is quite large compared to the other ladies, but I think she turned out pretty good. I also stitched the rose in the triangle below my block. This is a very well laid out piece. Catherine did a lot of work stitching all of her blocks and I can’t wait to see this piece finished at the end of the year.
