I was feeling poorly Friday night and went to bed super early, that and Jerry getting home after being out of town added up to a very busy Saturday. Finally now on Sunday afternoon I have a chance to blog and give the names drawn for the giveaway!
But first….I’ve been making some progress on Quaker Sampling III. There is a mistake on the pattern on the lower left side which I corrected in my stitching but didn’t compensate for on other stitches and that was a bit of a problem, I think I’m back on track now. I’m giving some thought to using paler and paler threads as I work across this design until it the stitches are almost as light as the fabric. I need to pull out some threads and decide where I’ll change..
I picked up some really fun dpns at the knit shop, so pretty. I hoped they would work with this yarn for a project I’m trying but they are a bit small. Guess I’ll have to go back to the yarn shop!
I’ve been trying to keep the cookie jar full, not easy with Jerry and the three boys let me tell you. I’m currently out of chocolate chips and need to use up some brown bananas so I think after this post I’ll whip up some banana bread instead. Under my cookie jar is a pretty little cloth I found at a local vintage shop, I think is very sweet and perfect with my cookie jar.
A pretty view on the way to church last night….
