Hello my sweet blogger friends. I hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend so far. Mine has had it's ups and downs. Downs being yard work this morning....and the ups was going to IKEA this afternoon with the kids. I love that store! I can find the most interesting doodads there.
I finished two shawls and a cowl that I'd like to share with you. The first is a cowl made of a scrumptious yarn called Cassia by Louisa Harding. This is for Debbie, the owner of Needle Orts for this year's Halloween. She loves orange and when I saw this yarn, I immediately thought of her. I need to find a Halloween pin for the front center of it. If anyone has an idea, please share with me.
The next is a pink and black shawl I call "Paris". This is made of a yarn called Mimi Plus by Lotus Yarns. It's made of mink, cashmere and wool. It can't get any better than that! This one I'm going to sell in my store, so if you're interested you'll find it there.
The next shawl is the one I was working on during my last post. This one hasn't been blocked yet so it will grow some due to that. It's made of a gradient yarn that turns from cream to a shade of coffee with cream. It's an Ice Yarns cotton/acrylic gradient yarn. This one is also for sale in my store.
I've started a new one for myself from a yarn I showed you many moons ago. It's a lace weight which is merino wool and silk. I fell in love with the color name....Grandmother's Kitchen. I started it last nite and with 1600 yards this is going to take some time to complete. So far I'm loving it.
I mentioned the new cross stitch I started. Well here's the pattern and what I have finished so far.
It's not much but I'm making some progress. I'm stitching it on 30ct. natural with GA threads.
Well that's what I've been working on the last week or so. I love finishes but I also love starting new projects and I don't know if you have this problem, but I just get overwhelmed with what I have and want to start all of it. It's like I lay them out and go Eenie, Meenie, Minee, Moe and go with the one Moe lands on. I need to have a serious stash reduction sale.
Well I hope you ladies have a wonderful Sunday and received many.....
