I know I said I was going to try and do as little stash-adding as I could this year but........
I am weak in the face of a rainbow colored mitten kit. So sue me. lol
I mean, LOOK AT THAT COLOR. *squeeee*
I'm not sure I have the energy to start another Fair Isle mitten so soon after the last one though. Might have to tuck this away until later this year.
First stitchy, no-longer-a-WIP finish of the year....
CCN's Sweetest Home.
I started this last summer, enjoyed working on it while sitting on the deck, got halfway through and then forgot it existed. Whoops. So I only had to finish the other half, which went very quickly. My two hand-dyes for the hives weren't quite as different from one another as the sample would suggest so I did a little back stitching between the 'stripes' with a dark honey color to accentuate it. No changes otherwise.
I'm thinking I may order the frame that is in the sample:
It looks very nice all together like that. (They are always happy to order these types of frames for you at 123stitch.com by the way.) Or maybe I'll have the hubby make it for me and get a little wood doo-dad from Michaels to jazz it up. He does like making frames.........we'll see. :)
So. One WIP down, many more to tackle. One per month in 2013.......wouldn't be a terrible goal, right?
Some sweet little primroses that I couldn't resist buying, even though I'm pretty terrible at keeping anything alive other than your standard 'hardy' houseplant like a spider plant. Again, I'm a sucker for the color. :)
This month feels like it has been crazy-insane-batpoo busy but we did find time to go see a hockey game the other weekend. I had forgotten how much FUN these can be. (Would LOVE to go back next month if we can!!) It was Connecticut (where I live) against Rhode Island (where I am from) so I didn't care who won - even better! lol (RI team won. CT team was.......uhhh.......kinda terrible. Wow. I will not be rooting for them anymore. lol)
Other than that, I think I have reached the point where I am tired of winter. I get so tired of feeling cold all day, every day. Anyone else?????
Oh spring, you can not get here soon enough for me!
