I saw this cool article about taking photos and blogging about Christmas gifts without giving anything away. So, I can show you some TOP SECRET photos this week. The first photo is this fun crochet project that I have been working on. It is colorful and informational for me. I have to read the pattern and learn all kinds of new stitches.
The second pic is also of the TOP SECRET variety. This is the one of the quilt that I have been working on, in the evenings when I have time. It is super fun! I love seeing the progress. I am up to 2 sets of 3 rows. I would count this as 6 rows total, but that would be cheating.
This project isn’t TOP SECRET. This is a super fun project that I need to get done lickity-split. Halloween is nearly upon us! I plan to make it this weekend. This is for my lovely DIL. She found the skirt online in this fabric but at a ridiculous price. I said that it would cost 1/6th the amount to make it. When we first talked about it, I could find the fabric everywhere online. By the time that I got around to ordering the fabric, I had a hard time finding it anywhere. After two days of searching, I FOUND IT! I was soooooo chuffed. I can’t wait to see this all made up. I am super excited.
This is an update on this embroidery project that I have been working on for my own enjoyment. Obviously I am slightly behind… just working on July so far. The first two pics still have the pattern fabric attached to the block. I have yet to dissolve that off. I’m sure that I will get to it soon.
It has finally arrived! What is it, you ask? It is my Aunt Becky’s Finger Protector. A couple of weeks ago, I ordered two. I have had one in the past, but I haven’t been able to find it since our move last year. I ordered two, so I would have one at home and one at work. I really had to order them because my fingers were so very sore from working on the Hawai’ian quilting that I had to set it down and stop working on it while my fingertips healed. Then I was too wimpy to pick it back up before they arrived. Now that they are here, I expect to have some progress on this project to share with you this next week.
