I have been very busy for the past couple of weeks. I have been crocheting, knitting socks, tatting, and everything in between. This pattern is very old and I've lost it twice and had to reorder it...it gets rather expensive when it's old and cost $1.75 originally. LOL
This is a Leisure Arts pattern and have tucked away some worsted weight wool for the future. It's fairly very easy and mindless. So I pick it up when watching the TV on the Chiller channel LOL.
Another observation however. I have always loved to quilt, tatt, and play with beads. Soooo to combine them all I found a Christmas stocking that I could incorporate everything I love to do.
So for practice I selected some Christmas fabrics from my stash and hand stitched a very crude "crazy quilt" stocking. I've been experimenting with different embroidery designs, beads, etc. I had FUN! Believe me.
My next venture is to make a stocking with a more organized structure with trims I have ordered from www.flightsoffancyboutique.com Fantastic website. So, I'm waiting for some embellishments and trims. I even joined their monthly club.
I"ll see how far I get with anything tomorrow. Very tired today. Trying to get rid of the stress and this is the only way I know how.
Happy Crafting to all. :)
