My weekend started early Friday morning when I received the call that we were having a "snow day". YAY! I told myself right away that I was going to get some stitching done.
I had started a knitted sweater for my new great-goddaughter earlier in the week. I had 1 sleeve done and 1/2 of the second. I quickly finished the 2nd sleeve only to find out that I didn't have the right needles to continue. Aarrgghh! I surely wasn't going out in the snowy mess. I decided to move on to something else.
I started going through my "nest" and came across this.
I figured I could probably get this done and got started. Here is my stitched piece.
On Saturday, I got up and ran to Joann's to get the needles I needed for the sweater. I decided to continue on the it when I came home. It was going so fast I decided not to quit. Except for sewing in the ends, I finished it this afternoon.
I love it! I just need to get 2 buttons. I then went back to my thimble purse and started the finishing process. I didn't realize it requires a special jewelry type glue/cement so mine is done except for glueing it into the hardware. I am going to just attached hemp for the necklace.
It is so cute! I can't wait to wear it!
Now I can move on once again. I loved how much crafting time I got this weekend.
I think I need to start working on retreat things...it is only about 3-1/2 months away!
