Hello my sweet ladies. I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend filled with love and laughter. Mine has been a quiet one so I started two new projects.
First a new shawl made from a lace weight merino wool from Freija. It is the softest of wools and hand dyed in gradient colors. The one I picked is called Pixie and I just love the colors. The photo is a little faded out because the green is really a medium lime green. Love it!
Then I started a new cross stitch project. I'm working it on 28ct. hand dyed fabric (I forgot the name) and it's a pretty springtime green. The design is a freebie from Cricket and you can find it at their website. I have to go to my LNS this Wednesday to see if she has any firefly buttons from JABCo.
I'm stitching this with Au Ver A Soie 100/3 silks and the ones at the bottom are colors I still have to add to the design. I think this will make a really pretty summer pillow.
I have discovered something and I talked it over with my doctor and he seems to agree. When I get the shakes (my hands) if I pet Vallie it seems to calm them down. I'm going to get a wider chair next weekend (found some oversized recliners at Ashley Furniture) so that Vallie can lay beside me and I can be able to pet her when I need to. This has helped me with this new design I started and I can't wait to see if this helps on 32ct. as well. I just have to be patient.
Well that's all I have for now. All of you be good this upcoming week and no getting into trouble...frogwise or other.
