small sample of my crazy quilt embroidery

About Me

I am a consumate crafter. I knit, quilt both sane and crazy, scrapbook, bead, mosaics and any other thing I can think of along the way. Someday I also hope to do real glass jewelery and stained glass but those have to wait until I have room and more time.

Long Awaited Spring!!






Spring has sprung!! I am always so thrilled to find the 1st daffodil of the year. I thought with all the really cold weather this year that they would be late in making their first appearance but lo and behold-she was right on time!! Actually maybe even a few days early since it is not even the 1st of March. Right now she is the only one but her sisters will be blooming all around her by tomorrow. We are due for another nice day tomorrow so I will get to enjoy them all.

I have started a new spring project. I feel like I am a little conflicted or maybe I have a split personality. The reason? I am using Alpaca yarn, known for its warmth, to knit a very springy sweater. I am using a lacy cardigan pattern I bought on line from Chickknits.com. I love the fact that I bought and paid for the pattern and had the PDF to download immediately. I like instant gratification!! Now if I could only buy yarn on-line and have it that fast. No-I guess that would not be good. My stash is big enough already!!



I am still knitting on the 2nd of the chain link socks. I am still on the cuff but making slow and steady progress. I would be further along but that darn book I am reading (Outlander by Diana Gabaldon) is taking up my precious knitting time. And those pesky evening patients at work have come in on schedule and not left me any spare time to knit there either!! But they will get done because I have so much more sock yarn to use up. I mailed the girls their sweaters Friday and I am anxious to hear what they think. I guess it is time to go. I have spent more time on my blog today than on my creative endevors and I need to rectify that immediately!!

My pansies are perking up after being frozen for so long. They are actually starting to bloom again. The hydrangea is even sprouting new growth.

Like the new yarn, pretty color.
