Last time that I blogged, I was a bit disappointed that I did not have my Christmas gift making done by the end of Oct. That had been my goal. When I did not meet that goal, I set another one, hoping to finish by Thanksgiving. Well? Did I meet it?
Almost! I decided a couple of weeks ago to sit down, type out my list, do an inventory of where I was on making it happen. It really helped. I realized that I was not as far behind as I felt. It will help me to have a list of who gets what saved on my computer, too.
So, I am going to share with you some of the things I have been working on. Some are just future designs that I started to de-stress. If you are one of my friends from church, you may be getting a peek at your gift, but you will not know which one until then. (Kathie, I am NOT showing yours!).
This is an afghan that I am working on. This is the center. It is a counterpane design. I will do 12 more squares, each one with a different leaf design on it. I will work on this for next year. I love leaves and I love counterpanes.
Back in July, I started working on a design to submit to Knitty.com. I had this idea that I thought was perfect for them. I submitted it the end of August and had not heard from them. Last week, I could not wait any longer. I emailed and waited some more, only to be told................SORRY.
Will try again, but not for awhile.
Here it is.............It is called A Houndstooth Wrap About Town (thanks Cindy/Labgirl for the name).
My model is Diane Bledsoe, she makes it look even more elegant.
My photographer is Anita Wilson of Anita Wilson Photography. Thank you Anita!
This week, I have begun my cleaning for Christmas (I am ahead on that!). Got two rooms scoured from top to bottom. Tonight, the mantle, tomorrow another room. I am ahead of schedule and it feels SOOOOOO good!
What's new with you?
