Lena, I think it's great that you are able to make your daughter a bouquet that will last instead of flowers that will fade away.

The sewing machine seems to be good. I did a test stitch on the project I was working on. Just ran a second line of stitching along side the first for comparison. It looks fabulous. Ended up finishing the dragon I was working on. But it's done now and I can go back to the doll clothing design stuff.

Re: Stitch in Time February 2018

I am taking a break from knitting flowers tightly on 1.25 mm needles to knit a shawl loosely on 4 mm needles. The body is objecting.

I saw the pattern made up at my local yarn shop when I was there to get the tiny needles. I also saw some wonderful red yarn on sale that I could touch. I bought 2 hanks. Then I went back the next morning and bought the last 4.....

The yarn I am using for the shawl is the same as I made the ginkgo leaves from. I will give it to Vanessa when I am done. She can wear it if it gets cool at the reception.

Lena, sometimes we just have to change gears and give the body a rest. At least you are still working on wedding stuff.

I made a skirt and halter for the doll.


I was going to tweak the pattern I used to make this one and make another. Only... ka-ching! I made another critter sale. Sold two more, so had to get those packaged up. Now to re-make what was sold. I know, it's a terrible problem to have that my critters are selling.

That outfit has a superhero look to it! I can see it in a red, white and blue print!

Yes, Debbie, it is a hard problem to have.

My wrist didn't hurt when I got up this am so the switch is working. I should have also changed to knitting continental style (yarn in left hand) but I didn't think of that. It is to late now as it would change my tension. Maybe when I get to the lace part.
