TGIF


Another little project gets snuck into the mix. This is a piece of my mom's that she was having some problems with the buttonhole stitch along the outside edge so I was working on it last night at sit and stitch. Moments like this remind me why I joined EGA so many years ago, I knew these moments would happen just as there are some things I'm not as good at that I like to bribe my mom to finish for me.  As long as it gets stitched I suppose it really doesn't matter.


I love books, the wrap below was on a model in the store and I've been drooling over it for a while now. I finally got my hands on a copy of the book its in, now I just have to decide on the yarn. The store had it made up in a beige yarn that had small flecks of other colors that I loved but its not a yarn they carry anymore so I am now on the prowl for some cool yarn. In addition to what you see in the photo the wrap come down just below the waist. Its basically a big rectangle with a collar in the center. This will be great to keep warm when I'm downstairs as it can be quite cool down there even in the summer.
