I already showed you my 'Bakery' and 'Be Mine' finishes: the only other cross stitching I have done is to start a series of three smalls which I have not finished yet. They are from a pretty French book I got in France last Spring, so I am excited to have them finished soon and up in my sewing space. Here's a tiny sneek-peak of the first one:
I did not spend any money on cross stitching this month - not even for the Nashville Needlework Show exemption which I am really proud about!
As for crochet, it seems I suffered a bit after the completion of the Lake Erie Ripple. I started at least two projects and then had to rip them out. I wanted to get through some of my stash yarn before getting new yarn, but last weekend I broke down and went to the yarn shop. I bought myself some bright wool for a little furniture re-hab project, and some delicious spring cottons for a little kitchen kitsch. The store owner talked My Favourite Girl into knitting socks, so two balls of sock wool came home with us too. Hopefully these new yarns will break the start-frog-put away cycle that seems to be going on here.
I pulled out a long suffering sewing UFO and have gotten to work on it as well. Because I have to complete most of it on the dining room table I am hoping the pressure to get it off the table will kick me in the rear to finish it. It has sat for so long that I am not so crazy about it anymore. Sad how that happens.
So that's my crafty February. Let's hope March fares better!
