There was plenty of Fall KAL knitting in the morning but it is all too boring to mention again at this stage. In addition to all the socks, I also brought along the naughty pile of brown spaghetti to try and make peace. I had an unfortunate experience with it a few weeks ago and I have been afraid to touch it ever since. I am happy to report it played nice today.
The gloomy afternoon was spent stitching. I had stopped and picked up the floss for the little Halloween sampler that just showed up in the mail. I didn't mean to get started just yet but it was quite addicting.
I've got another sheep in the making. I am also happy to say that the new snap frame is working out. I keep it stretched with a thick towel when it's not in use.
That evening I perched under a lamp with this pile of pretty batiks for some paper piecing. I think these hexies may be a border for Daddio's wedding ring quilt. Everything else I tried did not look quite right. That little quilt is getting to be a real headache to finish. I didn't see that coming. I thought it would be done by now.
Finally I did some terrible watercoloring using water soluble markers instead of paint. I saw someone doing thumbnail sketches of landscapes using this technique and I thought I'd try it looking out Daughter's window. As usual I had a lot of fun working on several of them but they're not much to look at. It ate up a few hours of a long, dreary day so I should be thankful for that.
I'm lovely all of your projects...especially the sheep! :-). I don't know how you get them all done.ReplyDelete
What pattern are you using for the naughty brown yarn? The colors of everything in your pics today are so beautiful! I know I'll regret it, but I'm hoping for cooler (and drier) days ahead! Have a peaceful holiday!ReplyDelete
I think you're right on those hexies. They will make an awesome border on the Wedding quilt!ReplyDelete

Your watercolor is beautiful. I look like a two year old when I paint. Isn't it nice when yarn plays nice?ReplyDelete
The big pile of brown spaghetti is going to be amazing!ReplyDelete
