Darn It!

Look at this gorgeous darning egg I just ordered.

I have also ordered 2 more to be custom made for me. I don't know how to link to anything in my blogs, so I will just post the information to the artist's website and Etsy shop.

His website is: www.west.net/~harley/wood/darnaids.htm

and his Etsy shop is: www.etsy.com/shop/CustomWoodDesigns

Hmmmm, maybe I have linked it accidently. ;~}

I'm Officially a Designer

Yep! Thanks to the challenge for the June Sockknitter's Anonymous Group, I have designed my first sock. It is a toe-up sock with a sideways cable band and picot edging. When I get the pattern written up, I will include instructions for knitting the pattern cuff down, along with an alternate method of making the cable band. It's not an elaborate sock, but I am very proud of it - - like giving birth for the first time. :~} Hey Bridgett, does this mean I can join the elite designers' group? LOL

I'm Back . . .

I said that I don't post very often, but 2 1/2 years? Anyway, I will try to check in a little more often.

I finally made it to a Fiber Arts Meeting at our local library. Only a handful of people there during this warm weather but still a good time. The Fiber Arts group just finished decorating a chair (one of 12 rocking chairs decorated by various groups) that will be on a float for the 4th of July parade and then placed for a silent auction. Front and back pictures above. The seat cushion looks like grass on top and the bottom looks like dirt. So cute! There are even a couple bumble bees and butterflies in some of the flowers.
