My mother gave me a surprise gift that one of her friends made for me. Using an assortment of threads, she crocheted this dish cloth. What makes it unique, is that she used one strand of thicker cotton and combined it with several strands of sewing thread. A very imaginative way of using up threads that are a colour you generally don't sew with.
This has me wondering what other materials I have been using in different ways. Nothing is really coming to mind at this moment, but I'm sure that given a bit of time, I'll come up with some good ones. Perhaps you have some projects that fit into this category, I'll love to hear about them.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
My yard is calling to me. It is covered in those 'yellow' flowers and our jurisdiction doesn't allow the use of pesticides any longer. We tried using Weed Be Gone, but it only seems to have resulted in a great flourish of yellow. It's back to hand digging. Yard work and needlework doesn't work together in my mind. Using thick leather gardening gloves does help keep the fingers clean, though every now and then I do forget and end up with grubby hands that are hard to scrub clean. I worry about the dirt transferring to my projects. Oh well, I suppose the fresh air can't hurt, except for the maybe the pollen tsunami that the media says is heading our way.
