Morven

Here is my progress on the Hornbook Bestiary (by Scarlet Letter, using the silk kit).



And here is my fussy cut star for the week.  The last of this particular Tula Pink Saltwater fabric.  Again, copying the talented Eef's Needle for the fussy cutting!


My Rams and Yowes hasn't gotten far -- you can see some sheep legs, but that's about it.


I started another knitting project, but I will show that next time.

I wanted to mention an exhibit I'm looking forward to, down in Princeton, NJ.


The exhibit is from October 3, 2014 to March 29, 2015.  There is a needlework symposium on Sunday, October 5, 2014.  Here is the link for the exhibit.  And here is the link for information on the needlework symposium.  It should be a wonderful exhibit and symposium.  And no, I'm not connected in any way with the exhibit.  Just wanted to give a shout out to it!  Oh, and there will be an exhibit catalog too, which is fantastic!

Here is Mia enjoying some box time.  Such a silly girl.  You can tell she's in a pouncy mood by how big the black of her eyes is.  lol!


Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi.  I hope everyone has a great week!

Great new star. I saw the ones that Eef was showing, too. You are both very creative with your fabrics.
Nice progress on the Hornbook Bestiary, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your new knitting project.

Amazing progress on the bestiary! You are nearly finished! Great new fussy cut! That exhibit looks like it will be the time of your life! I wish we had exhibits like this in BC. Sweet little Mia in a box! Give her a pet from me!
