Hello my fellow stitcher's. Here it is Sunday afternoon and we are enjoying a peaceful afternoon after a chaotic morning. Today we celebrated Little John's second birthday....a few days early. Here are 2 pictures of our big boy blowing out his candle on his dinosaur cupcake. He was really quite proud of himself.
It was a houseful over at Peyton's and John's and we had a lot of fun helping him celebrate. He's becoming such a big boy it's funny calling him "Little John".
I made a Halloween display for him over at our house of my fall and Halloween creations. He loves looking at it when he comes over. Halloween is such a fun time of year.
I started two new projects. One is a shawl for myself out of the softest yarn I have ever worked with. It's alpaca, cashmere and silk and it is yummy. The color is a beautiful silver that will go with anything. I have 4 skeins of this beautiful yarn and I plan on using it all on this shawl. I want it big so I can snuggle in it. That's 1,740 yards so I know I'll be working on this for a while but it will be worth it. As you can see, Vallie agrees with me about how soft the yarn is. If I put it down, she's on it immediately.
The other start is a SAL by Lizzie Kate called "Spirit of Christmas". I'm chugging right along on it and so far so good. Since it's a mystery sal, I don't want to give away what the finish project looks like but I think it's okay to show you what I have done so far. I was going to change the colors (Weeks Dye Works) to more primitive colors, but now I'm glad I didn't. Loving them!
Well that's what I've been up to this week. I hope yours has been just as enjoyable. You all have a great week.
