It's Fall Y'all! Okay, so maybe we here in the South have 2 more months of "hotter than hades" but I've seen some leaves turning color and that's all it takes for me to get in the spirit!
I did not knit or crochet all this week because I had to kit up my Fall projects!!! I do have a finish this week though!
Let's start with the finish.............it was my #1 Stitch Mania project from this year.........a Lizzie Kate design called A Little Luck which we could all use this year!
This pattern was gifted to me as the person had already stitched it. It came with some beads and a horseshoe charm which of course she used on hers. I stitched mine on lemon yellow 14 count Aida. The beads are supposed to go in the flower centers at the bottom and the horseshoe charm is to be attached in the gold box on the right after the word Luck. I may just stitch the flower centers but I think I will order a horseshoe charm to attach. I still call it a finish. An FFO is a final finished object which will be when you either frame it or make it into a pillow or whatever.
I also did more dyeing of fabric but still can't find my yellow Rit dye and I probably need to order a gold Rit dye. So, I had to go ahead and use my dyed fabric as is for Thine is the Trick and the Treat by Prairie Moon designs..........
Here's my progress so far.........if you look at it sideways you can see it is half of a scary cat face....
My other Halloween start is my favorite of all...........they're really all my favorites.....When Witches Go Riding by Prairie Schooler designs........I changed 2 of the colors as I did check Misty Persel's from Luminous Fibers and she too thought that the recommended floss did not reflect the colors in the photo so she changed the orange and the gold around the moon. I did the same although she didn't mention which colors she used I just chose 2 that matched the photo and my gold is even a little yellower.
Not too much progress yet but most of yesterday was spent kitting all these projects up and dyeing more fabric! I am using 32 count Lugana and it is small but it is an even weave so that helps! I'm not doing the sewing method as it is not comfortable with this small of a weave but I enjoy the process of the "slower method" just the same.
There is one more Halloween ornament by Jody Rice of Satsuma Street on Etsy and I can't remember when I got this and if it was part of Stitch Maynia or not but I am enjoying stitching this for sure!
This is the first time I have ever worked with paper and it is so easy and not nearly as 'delicate' as I thought it would be. It's very enjoyable.
I did work on my sock a little. I keep forgetting to put in a progress keeper! This is a Knit Picks Kettle dyed yarn...I think.......
I forgot to show you the back of my America last week and I think I will put a patch over the back where it looks crummy........
But on the other hand, I dressed up the front a bit more. I remembered I had a eagle pin from my high school days and so I dug it out and pinned it to the pillow...........once I patch the back I will feel better! I really like how it turned out.
The other fabric I dyed was for a Fall project........a free pattern called Give Thanks but unfortunately I could not upload the photo. There wasn't much done on it anyway so you aren't missing anything! LOL!
That's all for this week. It is in the 90's here............ahhhhhhhhh! So, I'm watering the veggies every day. I've been eating green beans and cherry tomatoes from my little garden. The bigger tomatoes are slow growing. I have a pork butt in the crock pot for pulled pork for supper and I need to make some coleslaw to go with it. It's a quiet, peaceful Sunday. Wishing you all the best of everything!
