Summer here has gone into the low 30 degrees C already, and it is only November. It is going to be a very hot summer.
This is my daughter’s orchid, happily growing at my house. It is blooming beautifully.
Summer also means less knitting, and more time doing something else. I have started working on my mini bears, and have begun to work on Old Blu. When I saw the little Bat Bear, I was lost and loved the little critter. I decided to get him, as I know once the kits have been sold, many are not redone for sale again. So better to get the kit, even if I only get around to sewing him later.
When I visited the lovely Michelle at Honeydew Bears, she also had these pretty darlings. Old Ned, which is beautiful, in green and red. He is a cousin on Old Blu, and came to visit for the Holidays. And no festive season is complete without a Christmas Elf. 🙂 The little Hope Angel, with the cutest little wings, is a limited edition for Breast cancer awareness.
Transferring the pattern onto the fabric for the little bit of old school Candlewicking did not take long at all. Now for a bit of french knots and colonial knots, with a bit of stitching here and there.
I am still working on my grey lambswool sweater. All the knitting has been done, and it is off my needles. Now to sew it together and add the neck details, which I think will be uncomplicated. Keeping my fingers crossed to have something to show soon.
