Between scrambling to knit a bunch of new designs I’m scrambling to stitch up a bunch of designs, too!
Not this, though. I’m teaching beginner embroidery tonight and here I’m prepping the fabric for my students. It’s cute and fun!
Even though Red Letter Day Stitches failed, I still love cross stitch and embroidery, and I want to design in both of these mediums. Also sweaters! Just a little sweater design math under that cross stitch WIP.
I’ve got a lot of challenging projects on the needles right now so I’ve been taking my cross stitch with me out, which is great! except that you really need to LOOK AT IT when you are working. With knitting you can generally knit a lot without really looking at your work, which is great for socializing. Cross stitch? Not so much. Sorry coffee companions. I really am listening to you!
And a little something you haven’t seen around too much lately – embroidery! I’m working up a little something something for an upcoming sub call.
The snow is coming down here in Chicago and the temperatures are hovering right around 0. It’s more like January than nearly March and I’m itching for some sun and warmth. Luckily I let Shane talk me into going to Florida next week so despite it being, you know, Florida, I’m excited to actually feel a little warmth from the sun. I’ve got a TON of projects to finish up before we leave next Friday so I’ll just be stitching my fingers to the bone from now until then. I can do it! Stay warm everyone!
