Confessions of a Floss Licker

August 2010

Oh, I just had a marvelous idea! I need to get 1 more skein of yarn in a dark red color and I can make my own rose bouquet! Something fun and hey, maybe I'll throw that one at the wedding. (Not likely. I'd probably set it on the dessert table or somehow tie it into the hands of my bride dragon!)

Anyway, I've got a blanket that I'm making for my Mom for Christmas and a sweater for me to wear to work. The Caron Simply Soft is some nice stuff to work with! I want to seek out some of the "Country" to try. (It has some Merino wool in it - sounds nice.) I also have a basket (that will be felted) that I've started for a friend. And a bottle cozy for another friend. So that's three Christmas presents in the works so far. I have patterns for others that I think I can use some scrap yarn to make. This will be kinda cool.

On the cross stitch front, I've finished my Summer Exchange project and the bookmark that I posted for the GOS July contest. (Still waiting to hear the results on that one.) I'm still working on M Designs letter J. And to get inspired again I signed up for Kustom Krafts Blue Dragon Fairy. It's a SAL that will start Aug. 15th. I'm looking forward to that. I also accepted a new model. I probably shouldn't have but I think it'll be fun. So that's the update. Note to self: don't forget to turn in the form for the local festival!
