Weekly Update #12
Since I am definitely sticking with the video blogging/ video podcasting, I am trying to bring a little more structure to it. So the next few weeks will probably be some transition as I figure out how I want to situate it.
What's going on : Elmwood Festival of the Arts was this weekend. One of the joys of where I live, I walk out my front door and am surrounded by the festival. Some lovely things, just wish I could afford them! ☺
Doctors appointment is this Wednesday. I know it's wishful thinking to think this appointment will clear everything up, but I am still hoping.
Finished Objects: No finished objects this week.
Knitting Works In Progress:
Shetland Pi Shawl - Started Clue 4, the rounds are so long now, that the slow gradation of the yarn is completely lost. Still like it so far, we shall see how it goes.
Cloud Chaser - Have made it past binding off for arm holes on the back piece. Hoping to finish it in time for the cooler weather. Love cabling.
September Bakers Dozen Square
Crochet Works In Progress:
Vera's Blanket using the Esther's Square. Square Countdown = 8/48
Sewing Works In Progress:
Raw Edge Circle Quilt - Little Pea's Quilt is slowly being worked on. I am counting on him not arriving until February when he is due. ☺ (I am assuming he is a boy . . . but they don't find out for a couple more months.) Square Countdown = 6/64
Giraffe from Soft Animals A to Z by Carolyn Vosburg Hall. Cut out pieces and just starting to sew them together.
Tempting Ideas :
Hairpin Lace - Ah, this is something I repeatedly look at because of how beautiful it is. A few inspirational patterns I would like to try (RAV Links):
Lotus Smock - Love it and it looks good on multiple body types.
Village Summer Skirt - I am usually not a fan of fiber skirts, but love this and the hippie look of it.
Hairpin Lace Shawl - Love how this coupled with crochet looks so delicate.
There are many more beautiful patterns and projects in hairpin lace and I am trying hard to resist starting one of these. We shall see if I can resist.
Celestial Seasonings Tea - I have been drinking a lot of tea this week. I love the Black Cherry Berry mixed with the Lemon Zinger. I use my tea maker to make a big strong batch and drink it for the next few days mixed with a little honey and ice cubes. I love Celestial Seasonings because each flavor states whether it is gluten free! Plus, they have great flavors.
