Let's start with the FO which took me longer than I thought but I am pleased with the result and so glad to get back in the sewing saddle.....my first project bag!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Honey Bunny project is coming along but I doubt if 3 will be made by Easter.....me and my grandiose ideas! It is a small hook (D), sport weight wool yarn and it is tedious and I have to count every row...but I enjoy it without the deadline..........did I mention I hate deadlines? I just changed colors which is actually the beginning of the striped body. I have a cushion on my crochet hook but it is my left hand that gets cramped from holding the project and yarn not my hooking hand. I can only work on it so long before my left hand starts cramping up. The fabric in the background is my new Anne of Green Gables fabric which I will be washing right after this post. I realized as a liner for my basket it should be washed and 'shrunk' which is not something I do with my quilting fabrics. For quilting I like the shrinkage to take place after the quilt is done so I get that wonderful quilty puckering that I love!
Also..........I saw this cross stitch sampler (and yes there are 3 more for Spring, Summer, and Autumn and they are not small) quite a while ago and just have not been able to get it out of my mind........I love them all and they are all in the same style as this one. I'm not sure I will live long enough to get them all done but I'll never know unless I try! LOL! What I like is that the site that sells these sells the fabric used and lists the DMC colors needed so I can check it against what I already have and just order the ones I don't have...brilliant! It's from Everything Cross Stitch just search for Winter Sampler or Summer, Spring, Autumn and you should find them all.
