Well I have not posted
due to sheer procrastination on obtaining batteries for the camera,
but we are now in working order again.
(back up batteries too)
It requires lots of pics to get a non shaky one (I can really use up the energy)!
Frame 5x7 found for $5.86 at department store...
so that is complete and ready for christmas gifting
and knitting is progressing one useable washcloth in sink,
and washcloth #2 in progress....I know white....silly me
but I thought it would help to learn to knit with a solid.....live and learn
all righty, then a lovely surprise visit from DS and his girlfriend on Sat
they gifted me with these
This is what is currently in the hoop :
I plan to stitch the beard momentarily,
I am going to use wisper thread for the beard...we shall see how that transpires.
Then knitting class at 2pm at LNS...will also purchase a star button for Santa then, so he can be all jazzed up.
I am thinking I will try to knit a scarf next......wheeeeeee.
As per Sharons blog http://itsdaffycat.blogspot.com/
this is my first stitched item, I believe I was @ 8 years old.
My grandmother "Omi" lived in Germany, she mailed me a christmas gift of threads
and a stamped cloth as we had just been stationed back toTexas.
I was happy to have them,but recall thinking "I could go play",
esp when warmer weather came and my Mom said you really should get this done...
(spoken with her accent and well meaning direction)
so I did ...looks like completion and playtime were more important than neat stitches
but i still have and use this :
yikes...but i love it
smiles and cool weather happiness...........corinna
