I immediately dived into a pattern called the Handbrake Cowl, designed by Kay with her husband Dan Jones. It's a pattern where the purchase price goes to cancer research, so definitely worth buying to support a good cause. I'm using Fancy Tiger Crafts Heirloom Romney in the Blue Maize colorway. Just a bit done so far.
I seem to have a theme of blue going on in this post. I received a wonderful gift in the mail from Paula of Kelmscott Designs. Paula has started a new line of products called Whimsical Edge Designs. She knows I love all things British and British Royal, so she sent me her Blue Queen Threadkeep. I love it so much!
I have it pictured here with two of Paula's scissors - both in red, of course! The one on the left is the Storklette scissors and the one on the right is the red Roly Poly. Can you tell I enjoy Paula's pieces? Thank you, Paula, for my Blue Queen! I love her!
I don't know if you've noticed, but knitting seems to have taken over for now, hasn't it? Never fear. For a while, I seriously wasn't even thinking of stitching. As a first for me, I didn't even purchase anything from Nashville market! Now this was a super bad sign -- I always go crazy when market rolls around. lol!
But recently, I've started thinking about stitching again. I even purchased a couple of charts from market, a few weeks after. This one (Fractur Friends by Shakespeare's Peddler),
And this one (Feathered Whisperers by Barbara Ana).
Anyway, all this is to say I have been starting to think more about stitching again. I think it's just a matter of time. So all you stitchers, don't give up on me yet! :D
I removed one of the wool blankets from the bed this week and put it on the bench I'd placed in front of Mia's favorite window. I think Mia likes having the blanket there.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week -- and that those who celebrate had a wonderful Easter, or are having a good Passover.
