This past Friday I hosted an Essential Oils 101 class, taught by a friend who is a Young Living Rep. It was really interesting, because I've been using them for about eight months now and I didn't realize how much I used them until I started explaining to other people.
And finally yesterday, my young cousin came over and we spent the day working on her sewing projects, playing the Minecraft Card Game, and watching a movie.
All this excitement has left me little time to work on my own crafty projects, although I have gotten some done on my shawl during my lunch breaks at work.
You can see that I haven't quite been able to eliminate that weird slope. The sides should be level with the center top of the shawl. I've decided to finish the row I'm working on and then go back and try to use partial rows to fill it in somehow. This is what I get for deviating from the pattern, for it was right about when I started adding the rows of the hdc that the stitching became twisted. Have no fear, I will make it work.
The other crochet project on my list is this basketweave scarf. I'm still loving the pattern and its stitching up nice and thick.
Lastly I was able to do a little work on Library Kittens yesterday, almost filling in and finishing the second kitten.
When I fill in everything directly below the black kitten, I'll move the Q-snap and take a full picture. For now I've been ignoring all the backstitching, but at this point it might be easier to finish that all at the end. Library Kittens will be my project today after church.
Having cleaned the house, I got up yesterday and realized how totally spartan most of my house is. We've never been a family for decorating, but now I'm dying to get some artwork on my walls.
Of course, it can't just be any artwork. I'm going to have to make it myself. I have visions of stitching Wanderer's Cove and hanging it up on the wall in the dining room nook.
I think it would look amazing against the grey wall.
SOOOOOOO many things I want to do! Dream big my friends.
