WOW!! All you followers rock! I can't believe I am up to over 100 followers! I am truly humbled and so grateful that so many people like to see my stitching! And my giveaway is still open, if you haven't entered my giveaway, go here.
I think my daughter is shocked---in a good way, of course. :)
Here is the latest on the Hands to Work This is the Day sampler. I have really been loving this design. I think Edgar was the inspiration for me to try this one. He was stitching on it last year (I think) His sampler turned out gorgeous!
There is some over 1 stitching in the box on the middle left. I have been leaving it to last, but I think it is time to get started on it. Also, the top box of alphabet and the bottom row of numbers are supposed to be filled in with WDW Conch. But I am still debating if I want to do that??
One more update-this is my newest knitting project. It is a sweater for my grandson. It is a variation of the Baby Surprise sweater by Elizabeth Zimmerman. My beginning knitting skills are being taxed! It is still a struggle for me to tell front & backs of this garment, to do double increases or double decreases, to repair problems like dropped stitches, & to understand all the knitting lingo! But I am soldiering on. I think I'll go back and try a pair of simple socks after this one :)
Thanks again for all your kind comments and interest in this little part of the Pacific northwest. Yes, it is raining today :)
