It has been a busy summer, with ups and downs. My father in law passed away at 93, but we moved here in time to share three nice months with him. We miss him, but know he is in a better place.
I did get some needlework etc., done, during this time. First is Witchy Poo designed by amy bruecken Designs and adapted for canvas by the late Caela Tyler. The canvas is a lavender that I just can't get to photograph well. This was a fun project.
I played with paper crafts and made this birthday cake card for one of my sister-in-laws, It is a pop up card that designed myself.
I am trying to reduce my stash and working on projects I have had around for a while. This is an EGA Petite Project from 2007 called Square Stitch Beaded Halloween Bracelet designed by Bonnie Marshall. The finished size is 6 1/8 inch with out the clasp, so I had to add a few extra rows at each end to make it 7 1/2" without clasp.
Finally, I found this little gem (?) at Tuesday Morning this afternoon. It is supposed to make twisted cord. I have not tried it yet, but the instructions seem easy and provide the number of strands and lengths need to make up to an approximate 18" cord (as long as you "turn the gear properly").
When I play with it I will report back, or if you have used it you can comment about it.
That about covers it for now, other than to say I have joined the ANG and EGA guilds in my new area and look forward to sharing some fun projects with you!
You have some great projects here! Looking forward to hearing more about your activities with the local guilds.
My condolences on the loss of your father-in-law.
Wow, that is quite the cactus! I don't believe I've ever seen one of those. That's nice you were able to spend time with your FIL, sorry to read of his passing. Love the bracelet!
Nice Halloween projects. I am frequently trying to finish long ago started projects, but I get side tracked with the new ones I am starting.
