Hard to believe that it is already August and we’ll be preparing for the holidays soon.
It is either raining or extremely hot here. Today it was the heat so I stayed in and put together this little guy.
The pattern is October Scare by The Wooden Bear Quilt Designs. This was my quilt shop purchase that I told you about last week. I think the candy corn fabric is my favorite J
I decided to hoop him to hand stitch his eyebrows and the spider's legs. I used two strands of black DMC embroidery floss and also stitched around the spiders and BOO.
I also started Mom’s scarf that I told you about last week. Take a look at this yarn.
It’s EROS II from Plymouth Yarn Company. I’ve never worked with anything like it before but I love it.
It’s surprisingly easy to handle and I’m using a set of the Knitter’s Pride Dreamz needles that Mom gifted me. The scarf will finish at 3” x 50” with a ‘flare’ at each end.
This is going to be a busy week for me. I’m covering for one of my co-workers while she is on vacation so this will make my days go fast. In the evening’s I’ll be cleaning out closets, drawers, our shed, etc. to prepare for a garage sale next weekend. Ugh! Wish me luck L
Even though I won’t accomplish much in the way of stitchery this week, I hope you do!
Have a wonderful week friends J
