A blog about my two main hobbies, ballroom dancing and sewing
Although I think I need to get a full time job just to not have time to look at sales on Herrschners.
The hummingbird, cat latch hook, witches' hats and the owl wreath are now sold out and I knew I got the last one of the doorknob hat. The slightly fuzzy picture is 'Train of dreams'. Most of these were heavily discounted.
This week has been pretty cruddy to me. It started off with me having to find a new job. My LinkedIn profile if anyone is interested. I also had to say goodbye to Onyx. She suddenly went downhill starting on Wednesday. I had her for 12 years and I miss her.
As for crafting, I started to get bored with Insanity.
Switched over to an afghan I had started a while ago that I found tucked away in my closet (of doom)
And have pulled out TW's Romeo and Juliette. Which I don't think I've worked on since I started this blog.
I did end up going on a tiny bit of a stash spending spree just because I was miserable.
Got the last peacocks and also bought some yarn. I had to order yarn anyway because I'm making an afghan as a wedding present.
I leave you with a few of my favorite pictures of my Onyx.
So I'm slightly more than halfway through the page. In another 10 rows I'll have some blue.
I was getting annoyed with the extra fabric so I decided to roll it from the bottom. Of course that required me to unfold the entire piece of fabric. I forgot how big this was. I think I ordered 55x55?
I fell prey to the HAED sale...
The last two are Maxine Gadd who's work is retiring.
And a cute photo of Onyx from today. She once fell through those bars and has since learned to brace herself with her back feet. She also spent the next month after falling, hugging the back wall whenever she came into or out of my room.
Good news is the sky will take almost no time at all due to the large blocks of single colors. As you can see below, I've managed to get a lot done today because ~30 stitches per row with no color changes.
Also felt I should probably show you my Monday night project.
