Many of you are aware of, and maybe are participating in, Pam Kellogg's Never-Ending Stitch-a-Long (free, btw!!) and this is my effort towards that. The first twelve stitches are done....using waste canvas on black cotton. I will be turning this into an insert on the cover of one of my three-ring binders that holds stitching inspiration. Now I will wait until there are twelve more patterns available and I will use them for another insert on another binder. (and before you ask, yes the margins are straight in real life....don't know why they photographed wavy!!).
And here's your dose of mumblings for today...
- another thing I've noticed trending about the blogging world seems to be THESE hats. Plenty of links and ideas there if you're thinking about making one for yourself or for a gift.
- My friend Judy posted a link to THIS Christmas-themed quilt a long (and yes, I know Christmas is over with, but it's never too early to think ahead, right?). Be sure you scroll down to see some of the many different ways you can use the patterns!
- And another freebie for the quilters who also happen to like cats - how about THIS?
- For the crocheters - some nice patterns for the puff stitch HERE.
Most of you know how much I dislike winter. Today is a prime example of why - it has been snowing pretty much all day and the forecast calls for it to turn to freezing rain tonight. Oh joy! So...your quote for today is this one....from Carl Reiner..."A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water"
