First I did get the first 'redwork' angel stocking all stitched--
this was the one that came already 'preprinted' on sticky backed paper--
then you just put it in warm water and the sticky stuff disappeared--
and it did--was great--
but I did panic alittle--
as my red thread turned a dark deep red--
luckily as it dried, it turned back into the right shade of red!!!
Here she is all dried and ironed--!!!!!
and I got the next one traced off that I am doing--
actually I am glad that the second one did not come already done on that "papery stuff"
as it really had toooo much detail in her--
and I was able to not add some of it and make her more 'country' looking to go with this one--
wait until you see her!!!!!
And now a nice Drum roll please!!!!
Look what I finished up today?????
My Gardner's Journal quilt ----
it is all hand quilted and the binding is even all done--
she is ready to be 'cuddled' and loved--
thanks to Chookyblue's whip!!!!!!!!!!!
Have worked on a couple other things--
but no big finishes yet!!!
Yesterday was a 'run around' day--so no sewing got done--
and as for knitting--
did have a class yesterday afternoon (Monday)--
but did alot of unknitting there!!!!!!
Well--tomorrow is the day before the big 'feast' day--
are you all ready?????
Have safe travels if you are traveling--
Hugs, Di and her loving kitty!!!
PS she loves to get my 'goat'!!!!!!!!!!!
