So, I have to admit I need a change of pace sometimes - last week before I got sick, I made new curtains for my kitchen, new napkins, and a new apron. I also cut out a black and white apron for the Tie One On blog challenge - need to get it finished. I think the Prima Donna Downey canvas aprons are charming but again no funds - so I found an old piece of canvas in my fabric stash and cut out an apron - now to embellish it!!!!!
Jane Thornley is her name and she has several free patterns on her site that I am so wanting to do. I spent this morning digging through my meager 2 containers of yarn to come up with some fun stuff to work with so I can make this scarf - (see below photo courtesy of Jane Thornley) - Isn't it just stunning? I will have to break down and buy a little bit of yarn and ribbon to do this so hopefully I will be able to begin knitting it sometime in the next month. I could do it in whites and creams right now but I think it needs some darks and sparkles to make it really dazzle! I have some fantastic beads to use on the ends.
She also offers workshops and trips to some places that I would love to visit so can you believe I was perusing her blog today and when I looked up at the clock, over an hour had passed!!! I was just dreaming of fun places to go and things to do. Do you ever do that?
Thanks for reading and have a great day. I just received my February Sampler so I have to get busy with it - what fun!!!!!
