Slow Stitching

 First off I want to wish everyone in Canada who may be celebrating thanksgiving this weekend a very happy and safe one. We have scaled way back and are only meeing with the people here in the house. I am continually thankful for our happy multi generation household here. 

I have 2 slow finishes this week. I participated in Casapinka’s mystery knit along that began a couple of months ago now. It had 6 sections of clues all written from the perspective of one of her cats, named Sharon. It was so much fun to do, not only because of the wide variety of stitches but also because of the way it was written. It’s hard to tell the size of it from the picture. It blocked out to 20 inches wide by about 72 inches long. Wide enough and long enough to make a nice shoulder wrap type shawl.

The second finish is the second block of the Noah’s Journey BOM by Crabapple Hill. The third block has been released. I have it all coloured and the colour fixative applied. It is drying now before it gets heat set and I can start stitching on it.

In the meantime I started a new embroidery project since I know the smaller ones from the Noah’s Journey BOM will only take a week or two. I am on a quest to make myself some seasonal pillows. I have one for spring/summer and one for Christmas so I decided I needed one for fall. Actually, I should clarify that statement to say that those stitcheries are finished. The actual pillows have yet to be constructed out of them. I found a lovely colouring page that I transferred over to fabric and then coloured in. I’ve started the outline stitching. The apples, pear and peach are finished.

I’m also working on a little Paw Patrol sweater for our grand daughter, found here on Ravelry. It’s still in pieces so there isn’t much to take a picture of as yet. And if that isn’t enough, I indulged and bought myself some more yarn. I love Casapinka’s designs and while working on the mystery found another sweater design of hers that I fell for. It’s called The Night Forest. These are the colours I’ve chosen. Close but not exactly the same as the designer’s.  I love the dark purple. I’ve done the tension swatch but past that I have promised myself that I will get Abbie’s sweater done first. So with that in mind, I will post this, link up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and then get back to working on Abbie’s sweater.

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
