Stitching Happy Dance

There are a few differences in crafter's dialect - knitters go FO!! and stitchers go Happy Dance!! - but the feeling is still the same.

8some Reel Finished

8 Some Reel Detail

Eightsome Reel from Papillon Creations. I used mostly the recommended GAST plus a few substitutes of my own. Stitched 2 strands over 2 on 28 ct Potato Cloth

I started out as a knitnut, then I became a quiltnut and a stitchnut and then a knitnut again. These days quilting has fallen by the way side but stiching is suddenly experiencing a revival. Good thing stitching stash is not as expensive as knitting stash.

There are few more samplers in my Stash that needs to be stitched but I might go back to knitting for the rest of the week. We'll see how it goes.

Sneaking up on me

Time is I mean!!

It's almost Chinese New Year again and the house is in a mess. So is the stash. I have to get the Calmer into the cupboard but that means I need to take some yarn out. Yes, yarn that has been there and I have no idea what to do with has to come out. Odd balls have to come out. To be frogged projects has to come out.

Which mean there's going to be a sale here very soon.

Knitting slump

I am in a knitting slump for one very simple reason - have an FO that makes me look huge - don't know if I can get up the courage to post the most unflattering picture of it here.

All I can say is - no more boatnecks for me .

While I gather up my courage - I leave you with a little bit of my other crafty pursuits
