As you know, I took a break from my Green Gable to work on the Forest Canopy Shawl. I'm loving it and the lace pattern is so easy. But I still need to keep working on Green Gable. I know I complain all the time about how boring stockinette in the round is...and I really mean that! But I really want to finish it to wear this fall before it gets too cold. So I should put the lace down and really concentrate on it. I'm thinking I still have about 12 inches of bodice to do yet in addition to the sleeves. But the sleeves are short so they should take no time at all. And since it's a top down sweater, there is no seaming. Yeah! My goal is to get this sweater done before we go to San Francisco in October. Is that asking too much?
Quilting, knitting, sewing... any kind of craft. Couldn't possibly forget wool applique and embroidery either. And did I mention that I like to make purses, totes and organizer bags? That is what I love to do. My greatest joy is making things for my family and friends. I have been a crafter since I was a little girl. I would sit for hours and watch my Mom and Aunts knit, crochet, sew, tat and embroider. They would hand me baskets of scraps and I would sit on the porch and make clothes and blankets for my Barbie dolls. That was many, many years ago. My greatest joy will be when I am able to sit with my grandchildren and teach them all about the wonderful world of crafting!!
