Did some crochet today with my sparkly yarn. The colors are real pretty on these yarns and they have sparkly metallic threads in the yarn that makes the necklaces look holiday-ish. This one has oranges and browns and autumn colors.
The sparkly red yarn in the next pic looks Christmas y.
Did a little sewing this weekend. Just a little. Got this blue needle book done.
I did button hole stitch around the edge. And I put 4 pages inside.
This past week it has started looking like winter is not too far away. More brown is showing up on the trees, and more bare spots among the branches. The clouds have lost their summer anger and have picked up a chill.
Well, I think I have ignored the laundry calling to me for about as long as I can.
I got the needle book done. Buttonhole stitch flowers, and made herringbone stitch leaves.
I did buttonhole stitch around the border. And I put 4 pages inside for pins and needles.
My friend Christine came over and we did a little sewing, then went to her house for supper. Her husband grilled some steaks and she made some baked potatoes to go with them. Yummy!
We looked at lots of pictures of crazy quilts on pinterest and got lots of inspiration and lots of ideas. It was a real nice way to spend an evening. Then it was home again, a cup of hot tea while writing my blog, and now I will say "Good Night" to all.
I put 4 pages inside. The finished size is 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches.
I'm keeping this one for myself - but you will see some in my Etsy shop soon.
And then I started on one with green lace.
Also went shopping today with my friend Christine. Picked up some felt, and a little bit of linen. Joanne Fabrics is always fun to just wonder about in. We also went to Ben Franklin crafts store - another great place to wonder about.
A slow lazy day today. Been reading some of the nice blogs out there. Lots of great ideas. And picking through my stash getting some projects ready. The weather has turned cool compared to what it has been, and the cool feels great. Took a walk with my cat and enjoyed the sunshine.
I'll have more to say and stuff to show tomorrow.
I think it might be nap time.
Thanks for dropping by.
Smiles to you.
