Well this was a distracted week! First I had a long weekend for the holiday, then I was sick on Thursday. I started a Bible study on Wednesday, and somewhere in there I even managed to do some stitching! No work on Fairy Sisters this week – my contacts are at the very END of their lives, so I didn’t put myself through the torture of trying to stitch when I couldn’t see. Instead………
I finished Irish Blessing! And I forgot my cardinal rule with this fabric, always photograph under harsh electric light. Hopefully Jo will be able to get a better shot of it when she receives it! It’s on its way to England! I will restitch this at some point for myself – I would absolutely love to have some of my work hanging in my house. And I may rechart the pattern I shared so that it incorporates what I did here. I’m really happy with the changes I made. The “braid” in the middle is the blue, pink and yellow together, so it makes a rainbow thread. It looks really pretty.
Oooh! I found one I took and put on Instagram after I finished – you can see some of the detail better – it was cut off at the top, so I’ve cropped it even more to show the braid and the Rhodes stitches:
And here’s a sneak peak of the new baby gift – just a look at the yarn. This is DK yarn from Kraemer Yarns, Tatamy Tweed. The color name is Oatmeal. and it’s so soft! I love this pattern, I’m making great progress on it.
Okay! Off to the post office and the eye doctor! Have a great weekend!
