I have so much counted cross stitch materials. I use to love doing this craft, but for some reason I stopped. It could be because I was working full time in a job that consumed me. I have been wanting to get back to it, but never got around to it until now.
I started a kit by Bent Creek called Betty Boo! So appropriate for Halloween. Before I started, I saw the Q snap frames and bought two different sizes. So here is a picture of what I have completed so far.
And here is a close up of the pattern:
It all came back pretty quickly. I landed out going up to the attic to find some books and fabric. I found a bunch of it, plus I have more in a closet. Now, I am searching for some metal hoops I know I had. I found one, but I know I have more sizes. I will have to search some more. I now have a basket with cross stitch supplies so that they are handy. I just need to buy more fray check (thank God I had some) and needle threaders (My eyes are older and it’s hard to thread the needle, although I have been able to do it.) It just feels so good to be back at this craft.
I have been knitting (just not for the last two days). I completed the Song of the Sea cowl using Sanguine Gryphon’s Bugga in Milkweed Beetle with a size 6 needle. I did make some adjustments. I cast on an additional 16 stitches and omitted a repeat in the medium waves and breakers. I love how it turned out.
I also completed one Witchy Woman sock. The yarn is Vesper Sock yarn in the Witchy Woman color with a size 1 needle.
I did get some yarn. I was able to get a ball of Lollipop Yarn in the color Life is Beautiful.
Plus, I got Madelinetosh Pashmina in the color Flashdance.
Well, back to the cross stitching!
