This is one of those weeks filled with appointments, so I'm not as productive as I might be. There are weeks like that. I'm posting this morning with the little bit I've done because I'm heading out for my swim, even though we're getting 5-10 cm of snow. I have another appointment this afternoon. Tomorrow morning is the dentist for a cleaning, Friday the doctor.
I always get stalled on the borders; does anyone else? I speed along on a little piece of printing and stitching and then I can't make up my mind what to do with it. I've manged to add 3 borders and laid out how I think the rest will go. I believe it will be a wall hanging as the flowers seem to go that way. I'm not usually a lace person, although I like to use it in printing for texture, but I remembered this bag of scraps that I was given, and when I tried this little piece on the border it said yes to me. The light isn't perfect; it's cloudy and snowing today. I have it laid out on my sewing table and I had to climb up on a chair to get the picture.
I think this piece is a bit different for me. While I used the same methods for mono printing, the colors are more subdued than my usual pieces, I think. When I start a piece I don't have a full vision of how it will look; I choose my theme as in the cosmos on this one, and then I choose some colors. After that a lot is done following my intuition.
I thought you might also like to see my latest knitting project. I love to cast on an afghan that is easy and knit all in one piece. I'm knitting this in Paton's Decor which is acrylic with 25% wool. It makes it wearable but still has the warmth of wool. It is a very easy pattern which some may recognition. I have it jotted on a scrap, and have no idea where it came from. If anyone would like the pattern let me know. It is a 4 row repeat with only one row of pattern in it.
WIP Wednesday. Go on over and take a look at all the quilting and stitching going on.
