I finished a couple of projects this week, one that has been hanging since 2001! More on that in a minute.
I was able to finish knitting my "fleece yarn" scarf. It turned out so cool. The fleece made a knitted fabric that is dense so I know it will be very warm. It was slightly bulky to work with but definitely worth the effort. I love it. It has a hole knitted into the pattern so it closes itself. The nubby texture makes it really different from any other scarf I have. If I had the patience, I think this technique would make a nice bath mat or rug for in front of the kitchen sink! If you are a knitter, you really should try this.
Now onto the 10 year old project that has been hanging on. I started painting this lamp in 2001. It has four sides to represent each season. I had all but one finished. I don't know if it has been this blog or my new craft room(or both), but I have been able to actually finish my projects. Finishing this reminded me how much I love tole painting. I see much more of it in my future.
I bought a book with simple serger projects to dip my toe in the water of serging. I hope to do one of those this week. My oldest son turns 20 tomorrow so, with that and appointments and work, it will be a busy week. Speaking of my oldest, he snapped this picture of me and my Mickey with his cell phone. Mickey looks like a ghost kitty and frankly, I hate pictures of myself, but I thought I would put it on here. The candlestick lamp in the background was replaced with my new painted one to give you an idea of where I put it.
We had a mini blizzard Saturday night and I am a little disappointed it didn't happen on a school day so we could have had a snowday(ha ha) but I hope wherever you are the weather isn't too difficult and you are all safe and warm. Take care. Nancy
