Are you waiting for Santa? Are you done doing all the things that need doing? I’m not exactly done. I just kind of gave up. I’m applique-ing and knitting instead. Of course, I had to rip out all the knitting after the yarn broke during a triple axle…or the equivalent knitting move that I’ve never done before. I threw away about $5 worth of bison, I think. I don’t think I’ll ever know if I should twist my yarnovers clockwise 720º or counterclockwise 720º. Anyone? Anyone?
Oh well. We live to tell and to cast on again.
I’ve finished the applique portion of one of Lynette Anderson’s Scandinavian Christmas blocks. How timely.
There’s lot of stitching to do to fill in the blanks. I took it on faith that I wanted to use Cosmo Multi-work two-strand floss in the “redwork” color and I ordered 10 spools. They’re on their way here. Hopefully they’re not stuck in the rain in California. Good thing they’re colorfast! I have the Santa block queued up next. Maybe I’ll be applique-ing Santa on Christmas day.
Um, did you take advantage of Jackie’s wonderful Westminster sale last week?? I couldn’t resist. She had some prints I’ve been ogling. Did I mention they were on sale?
This one has my name written all over it! Well, maybe not literally. The colors leap off the fabric!
Had to get some kite tails:
And a few other treats and replenishments:
Merry Christmas to me, eh? I couldn’t believe that the package arrived TWO DAYS after I ordered. Now, really, Jackie must have some magical mailing powers to get her fabric orders through the holiday rush. Thanks, Jackie!
Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. Eat a lot, enjoy your families, stay warm (or cool…). Merry Christmas!
