Kitty!

Started a shaped afghan. I need to outline one of the legs, sew both down, then make the eyes, nose, heart, bow, and tail and sew those to it along with mouth a whiskers.


Oh and here's the finished page of Black Stallion.


Still purple

Cameras hate the color for some reason. It never shows up right. 83/98 rows complete. The entire first row is going to look like this.


I think you can kind of tell there are 4 main colors on this page. 155 and 340 are so close together I had to be careful when working on the rows where they overlapped.

No new stash this week. I was good. So I leave you with Clyde.



Finish and purple

So I finished the shawl with minimal visits from the frog. Still needs blocking.


And so I started on The Black Stallion. I had only 17 rows done on the page, now I'm at 40. With the exception of 3 stitches, it's all 2 colors.


I also caved to HAED's sale.


The first one is now retired and I bought the hard copy. Just in case I ever decide I really don't ever want to stitch it.

Frogs have visited

So I finished the bodice of the duster and tried it on. It was way too big and also the weave was too tight. I will have to go up a hook size or two for better drape


In the meantime it looks like this...


So onto my cross stitch. Remember the last time I picked up "Best Friend"? I got quite a lot farther.


So page one done, I went to a WIP I had put down because I had to frog. Ended up frogging most of what I had done today (4 rows) and did manage to redo and complete more before taking this photo. But the frog has come to visit this week. I wonder if it's mad that I got rid of the fly that got into my apartment.


Took a few cool pictures of the sunset Tuesday night.



Also some of Clyde, here's my favorite.


And I picked up more stash. I saw these on the specials page of abcstitch...

The ornaments I had thought were cute a while ago. The last one "Russian Hunting" was an impulse buy, mainly because it was so discounted and I liked the horses.

Finishes and stash

So I have another page finish. Page 6 of the Arab Tent, but it was already halfway done. I probably stopped there because I was tired of all the dark colors. Which is why I won't be going onto the next page just yet.

Made a baby blanket a friend commissioned.


And decided to try again for the Special Day Cardigan from Annie's catalog again. Still don't know how to get 13 sc to be 4" using a G but the height and back width seem to be coming out to the other measurements listed for the pattern.



I also went a little crazy at Mary Maxim's. First they had a BOGO on downloadable patterns.
