I am hoping to have this pretty little project done in time for Christmas. I spent some of the long nights I was up with Ethan this past week making good progress. Ethan is doing much better but has a nasty cough. He and I stayed home from church tonight, we don’t need to catch a new bug, or share the one he has. Thank you so much your good thought and prayers. They are much appreciated, it has been a long week.
I really like this design, it uses all hand-dyed threads. The only drawback to that is that several of the threads are used for only 2 or three stitches, so I’ve made up a few kits with thread packs keeping this in mind. you can find the details here.
The angel reminded me a bit of our tree angel. I made her at least 22 years ago. She looks pretty good after she’s been out of the box for a few days. When I first pull her out each year I think, that’s it, she’s not springing back, but she does. You can’t see her wings but they are made from a old lace doily. I’ll try to take a picture in daylight of her, today just got away from me. I’m also trying to get a couple knitted Christmas gifts down and have lots of Impie, Hattie & Bea sewing to do. Look for something new next week!
I’ll sign off now and share a few more pictures of our tree.
It’s starting to feel like Christmas, it might even snow tonight!
