I know I haven't been a good blogger the past few weeks. It's not that I am not working on my knitting. It's just that I am working on *big* projects, and no one wants to see pictures of the nanometer of progress that I have made on everything anyway. Constant WIPs photos are just boring. I should just set aside a day that I post WIP photos.
Sly and I went shopping yesterday. He needed underwear, socks, and shoes (I am sure he is happy that I am writing about his underwear). While rooting around in the Bargain Books store, I found the Stitch It Kit by Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching for $8 (and a Miss Marple).
The kit was pretty complete, with floss, hoop, booklet, reusable transfers, needles, and fabric. I added the mini pin tomato, scissors, and Altoids tin with needle threader. Since I had everything, I thought I should start to stitch. Now, I did do some pretty ugly embroiders when I was younger. I have also stitch a few knitting totes recently, but I was pretty rusty at the time. I think I have got the rust pretty well oiled now, what do you think?
First, I did this sweet little strawberry.
Then I did the cute coffee pot and cup. I think both turned out really great, and neither took long to do. I was in need of some instant gratification crafting. Knitting is all about delayed gratification.
After my success, I bought this:
Good ol' Walmart, more floss then I'll ever use for $10!
I also ordered new Sublime Stitching patters: Krazy Kitchen, Day of the Dead, Craftopia, Pinups, Gothic, Om Sweet Om, and Dainty Days.
I have a black hoodie that I bought on sale for $5 a while back. I am going to start stitching all over it tomorrow.
That is all for now,
