Summer is slowly making way to Fall here, and I am slowly getting a lot more crafting done.
It is still pretty warm during the day and we still go out as much as we can to enjoy the last of Summer, but I am really looking forward to Fall and Winter.
My Leaf Shawl is making progress, despite having to frog twice. I do not use a pattern and am making it as I go. I added some texture to the shawl with this very soft and light blue yarn, that has a little sparkle in it as well. I am loving the way it is turning out so far.
My little tapestry is getting regular attention now, and I have completed the background and even substituted the grasshopper with a ball of yarn for the cute kitty. Kitty is up next and I have the tapestry yarns I need.
And I am crocheting again, another vintage look doily. These are just my absolute favourites at the moment, and when I find myself crocheting, I always look for a vintage look yarn and pattern. This pattern is from a book I bought about 30 years ago, when I just started working and collecting books and patterns. It is still one of my favourite pattern books to look for when wanting a pattern.
