Northwest Red Head: Something different

Something different

I've decided to do pull out pig to work on for a change. There isn't a whole lot left to do, the black areas and finishing bits on the shirt and face. The background on this piece is a nice open diagonal stitch to allow the paint to show through which I'm looking forward to stitching, quick and easy once I get to that point. If I can stop getting distracted by everything else I want to do I might have this one done soon.




I've done a bit of work on the shaker boxes as well, I'm working on the emery which has been a real treat *cough* *cough* No really :) I don't know how they think I'm going to fit emery in this tiny thing but as I have no plans to actually use it the emery won't be missed if I don't stuff it inside. I'll hopefully post a pic of that and a bit more progress tomorrow.


On the stash front I've picked up some yarn for a project I hope to get started at some point this summer ;) This is just your basic average Red Heart with a tweed look to it. Easy care, washable, not my favorite yarn at all but it will be easier care than the wool I was looking at, I very much do not like having to watch fibers and care tags when I wash things. With my luck I'd forget and I'd have a nice wrap sized just right for barbie :p

  1. I really like the yarn that you chose for the wrap. It's going to be so nice! And I'm all about easy care. I'm irritated that the most recent shirts I bought for work are going to require ironing. I like things I can pull out of the dryer, plop onto a hanger and then wear. :)

    Your pig is coming along very nicely; can't wait to see him done! I think he's already doing a happy dance of his own. ;)

  2. OMG the pig is a riot! I love it. I think the wrap is going to be beautiful in that yarn. Sometimes easy care is the best. (I also hate reading labels and washing according to them LOL.)
