And now the December rush begins…
Actually it should not be too bad. I have some quickie presents I plan to make (can’t show those yet!) and a couple of knitting projects to complete. The projects for this month are the extras…things I would like to get finished.
First, though is my November project for a challenge with a friend. Each month Jean comes up with an art project and those who take up the challenge can use their favorite medium to complete it. Last month was my little purse. This month our challenge was something for the table:
I made a fall topper. Very easy and fun to do.
Now for my goals.
This has been on my design wall forever. Mimi bought me the pattern a couple years ago and I picked out fabrics back in the spring.
The center is in 4 sections right now and the leaves for the set-in triangles are fused in place waiting to be appliqued. I don’t have the set-in squares ready yet. I really want to finish this so I plan to work on it between Christmas and the new year. It looks a little brown in the picture; there is more green than shows.
Finally, I am having fun with this. (Free view of mess included!)
The pattern is No Measure Bargello and I am doing it with a batik jelly roll. Not super difficult but a little fussy. Just what I like! If I like it, I will be teaching it in the spring.
To conclude, here is Adrienne modeling my latest shawlette. My first attempt at beaded knitting and lots of short rows!
