Greetings everyone - I hope you are all prepared for Christmas - I am not of course, still have wrapping to do but not much because we are not doing much this year and I have a very small family so . . . .
I hope everyone has been having a great holiday season - I had not had much to post about so I've been absent from blogland in December - just popping in here and there checking blogs I read.
I have a few finishes to show you and a few WIP's that I have been working on this month.
I am very disappointed - I don't know how to fix the photo being upside down. I saved it on my PC right side up. It shows in my photos folder correctly but when I download it to my blog it reverts back to being upside down. I am getting so discouraged with blogging lately.
You can still see the beautiful color of the Butterfly Shawl . It was an Art Yarns KAL earlier this fall. Don't ask me why I didn't complete it, I just didn't till the other night and I thought - get this thing done before the end of the year. The close up might show the butterfly-like edging. The yarn is Zara Hand Dyed by Art Yarns for any knitters who might be interested.
This is a cute little box top pin cushion I made for DF Starr. Her husband makes these beautiful boxes and she wanted something to go on the box top. It was quite a challenge to find something that small. I chose the SB freebie sheep pattern. I have some decorative JABC pins to add to the box but they have not come in yet.
Here is a closer photo of the box - I did the finishing myself and I am quite proud of how it came out. I used purple chenille for the finishing of the edge. I am not much of a finisher but I think if it doesn't require a sewing machine, with persistence and time - I can probably make it work out.
There are more things I wanted to show you - some pretty WIP's but if they are upside down - it would just be stupid to post the photos. I am going to try and maybe download the app for IPads and start trying to use that. Keep the photos and everything all on my ipad instead of trying to transfer the photos from my phone to my PC and then having all these issues with formatting. This never occurred until I upgraded from XP to Windows 7. If anyone has any helpful hints please do share them with me.
Well - I am going to let this be it - I mainly wanted to wish all my friends in blogland a very Merry Christmas. I hope you all get lots of pretty things for Christmas and have fun and don't forget some quiet time with your needles and hooks.
