I missed my blog’s 2 year anniversary which was on December 19, so I will catch up today! There have been so many things going on, that as promised in the last post, I will now tell you about. ^_^
I have been working on some new Project Pyramids and have listed these in my Etsy shop. At the fabric shop, we just got in Love by Amy Butler, so be sure to watch for that soon too! If you would like a special order, just visit the shop and convo me!
And now for a tour around my Christmas tree this year. These are just a few of my favorite ornaments. There are quite a few, not as many as there are on my parent’s tree, but I’m slowly climbing my way up.
This is the latest addition to the tree, the red thread and needle. I love this ornament! I made the mistake of buying it for me when I was shopping for my fiance. . . turns out he noticed this hanging on our tree and got mad because that was the ornament that he bought me this year. Oops. ^_^
This is my cappuccino cup. I have had this for a few years and still love it. The picture came out with a heavy flash on the foam, but in reality, the white foam is very glittery.
My mom bought this one for me last year. It’s a purple Jelly Fish! How cool is that? She also bought my fiance a blue one to match mine. These blown glass ornaments are my favorite and are pretty much the only ornaments on my tree.
Or course I have a cat playing with a ball of yarn, duh! ^_^ This one is a few years old, I got it when I started to learn how to knit.
And the last ornament on the tour is the purple bird, also a new addition from last year. Birds are really big this year, and this chubby bird is so adorable! The detail work is really quite stunning. All of these ornaments are Old World ornaments purchased from the local ornament gift shop. It’s an annual tradition to go to the shop and pick out a few new ornaments for the tree, one that I have always loved and can’t wait to continue!
On to the knitting front, I have started my Snapdragon Flip-Tops by Ysolda. I am using Dream in Color’s Classy in colorway Gold Experience. I have finished one glove, but had to put the other on hold for my brother’s Urban Necessity Gloves by Colleen Michele Meagher. Both of theses glove patterns are great for the cold weather. I love the pattern on Ysolda’s design, but I also like the simplicity of the Urban Necessity Gloves. They both came out great!
That seems to be pretty good coverage for today. I have spun up the yarn for my mom’s hat and am in the process of knitting on that right now. I will update again soon with the progress on that as well as the sewing projects that I have to do around here. Until next time! ^_^
