Outside, the signs of spring are peeking out everywhere!
Inside, I've been finishing up a few projects like this dishcloth.
In trying to keep up with my one-a-month plan, I started another one.
I also finished my contribution to Leslie Ehrlich's Sandy Hook Memorial project. Of the two choices, I picked the memory heart. It was supposed to be a CQ heart featuring old fashioned children's toys, but I did cross stitch and put the CQ on the background. To me teddy bears symbolize comfort. Hope it's OK!!! (The bear was from a corner of a much larger design called "Baby Blessing," a pattern by Michelle Lash.)
This fun project is from the current Vogue knitting magazine. It's a collar and needs a length of ribbon threaded through the beading to be complete. It's kind of like an itty bitty shawl and reminiscent of collars that were popular in the late fifties. There are seven different patterns in the article, and I plan to knit this one again and try another one that requires beaded yarn as well. Very fun!
Have a great week, and don't forget to change your clocks as it's time to Spring Ahead! Already? How can that be?
