I finished the Mystery Project from Laura Perin's website. The directions call for beads in the middle of the flowers, but I haven't decided if I will add them or not.
Recently I joined Janet Perry's Bargello Mittens and Mini Socks Bargello Club. I have decided to stitch mittens. This is the first pattern done in a vertical Bargello stitch. I used Caron Watercolors in African Violets and a deep yellow DMC floss. The cuff is done with fingering weight yarn. This is the first Bargello project I have stitched. It was a little challenging, but I had a lot working it.
Here is a close up of the mitten.
I mentioned I used fingering weight yarn in the mitten. Here is another project I am stitching using fingering yarn. This is another project from one of Janet's clubs, her Stash Club. The yarn is a collection of mini hanks from Sunflower Yarns. My plan is to make a 6 x 6 inch square and put it on top of wooden box.
Mr. E celebrated his third birthday on April 8th and this past Saturday we had his birthday party here. This is our favorite photo of him from the festivities. He had a lot of fun celebrating birthday. His exuberance reminded us how special birthdays are!
That's all the news for now. What's happening with you?
