Our darling grand daughter, Peyton, is in need of prayers. I went with her to the facial surgeon on Monday and he said after running some tests, that he had no idea what was wrong. He said that if he had to make a guess, it would be a stroke or a tumor so she's going to a neurologist tomorrow. I know he'll probably send her for an MRI and I'm just praying my heart out. She woke up this morning with her right arm in a lot of pain and then it went down into her right leg. I had 2 cousins who had MS so that runs in our family. I just can't deal with her in pain......she means just so much to me.
I finished the Flag Lady but I'm not completely finished with the finishing. Make sense? :o) But I have started something new.
It's the Old Crow by Heart in Hand. I'm hoping you can see the variations in the HDF silk I am using because I just love it. I'm stitching it on Primitive Gray by PTP and it's showing up beautifully.
Now to tell you about my new purchases of yarn. Ahhhhh yarn, I could wrap myself up in it and just snuggle all day. These first two were purchased from a company, Ancient Arts, who dyes yarns to match colors of dogs and cats. Unbelievable right? Plus you can purchase them in different weights which I like.
This first one is based on a
Orange Tabby Cat
and this one is a
Lilac Point Siamese
If you are interested in seeing some fantastic colors, here is their website:
This next yarn I purchased on Etsy from Juliespins who is a fantastic dyer. This one is called "Pioneer Woman" and I see it as an old fashioned granny shawl. It's a little lighter than sock weight so it should make a nice shawl for Florida in the winter time.
This next yarn I have high hopes for. I came across it at Tuesday Morning near me which gets a shipment of yarn in every month and this time I came home with this. It's a linen/cotton yarn that isn't very soft but I'm hoping that after knitting it up and washing it, it will soften up some.....or so I've been told.
