Needlework Tuesday - Ruffles and Frills
Last night, I sat in front of the television and finished the black one that had been languishing for the past year, and started and completed the pink/purple one. They are just that easy and sweet.
Quite a while back, I attended a tent sale at the Spinrite Factory outlet in Listowel and purchased two dozen or so balls of this style of yarn. They don't have a brand band on them, but a special sale band, so I can't tell you what type they are. I choose by colour as opposed to anything else. They are going to make wonderful gifts.
One thing I do that any instructions I've seen for them doesn't say, is that I sew the end closed with needle and regular thread. I would hate for a scarf to start to unravel for the sake of a few stitches.
I've had a few new visitors leaving comments this year. I am thrilled that you share my love for needlework and hope that you'll add a link to your current needlework post when you wish to share. This week I had a lovely catchup message from a blogger I used to visit with all the time. I am so glad that she is back online and doing well.
While I realize that it is unlikely that I will meet many of the wonderful people with whom I have such lovely virtual visits, I do enjoy our time together and the encouragement we so freely pass to each other. Happy Stitching.
ps. Did you read my review of the book If the Magic Fits: 100 Dresses #1 by Susan Maupin Schmid. It is an enchanting middle school story that I loved and can't stop recommending. With a castle, princess, 100 dresses and magic, what's not to love about it.
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. I hope that you are having fun and making progress on whatever project is dear to your heart at this moment.
