I took last week off, as it was my birthday week, as well as Dracula week for DS and I with the ballet.
But, I did get some things done in the past couple of weeks. First, I mounted and framed the two small cross stitches I completed and got them on Etsy. Here is how they came out:
The bag I had been working on, is to the side at the moment. I ran out of yarn, so it will be something that I will probably redo at some point, but, as I am in the middle of the crunch of Christmas crafting, it can wait.
As I mentioned though, my birthday was last Monday and my wonderful daddy keeps an eye on my Amazon wish list lol, so these showed up for my birthday. First one I pulled out is another Dimensions gold series, of a cabin and the auroras. I took a picture of the back of the package because I am very excited that it came with all the colors pre sorted! That will save me nearly a day of work lol.
Second kit I pulled out I’m really excited about. I love Leonardo da Vinci, and I have a version of the painting in my house that my daddy and his mom, my grandmother, did from a paint by number kit many many years ago already so I think this will be great. Also excited that this one came presorted as well lol.
Lastly is a Christmas present I am working on. If any of my family is reading this, please be surprised if you open anything you see here on Christmas morning lol. I have had the Martha Stewart crafts loom knitting kit for a while, it’s fantastic because one kit gives you several sizes and gauges for loom knitting. So, I’ve been wanting to do a project like this with it for a while, since straight needle knitting is difficult for me. I am very slow and have issues with tension because my left hand is significantly weaker than my right after two wrist surgeries. Hence, why I crochet a lot more than I knit lol. But, I’m hoping loom knitting will be the answer to that. Here is what I have done so far. It’s about half a scarf…
Whew! I think that gets you mostly caught up on the crafting side of my life. I may have to do another life as a dance mom post soon lol.
Until then, keep smiling everybody!!
