Something New

Now I am back home from my travels.  But I leave again next Thursday for Cincinnati and three more classes.  What an unbelievable month I am having!  But where am I now?  I can't seem to put down the Williamsburg Remembered piece.  I want to finish the alphabet and start on the next row today.

 I wove the drawstrings to Friesland.  If you look closely, you will see that some of the drawstrings are woven more tightly than other parts.  I've got to just let this go and say they look fine.

The next step is to connect two drawstrings with a bobble.  So I want to get a bobble done today.

I got some new stuff in the mail.  I am a sucker for those Just Nan mice.  I got the Bride Mouse.  I also got the Summer in the Meadow needle case.

 I'm feeling a little guilty because I have another mouse and Spring in the Meadow that I haven't gotten to.  That's beside the two Just Nan things I have started.  I think I'll take a mouse to work on while traveling next week.

I also signed up for the next Amy Mitten Casket Keepsake that will come out at the end of July called Harmony.

 It will be a great addition to my casket.  It uses all those techniques that I have learned from the other keepsakes she designed.  It has a lot of stumpwork on it.  I love the little scissors fob that is shaped like a Tudor rose.  Although I know there is probably some detached buttonhole stitch used on it.
It's a busy Friday!


  1. Please will you weave my cords for my Friesland pocket - oh and for the Pomegranate! See you next week!

  2. I love that Williamsburg piece! Thanks for sharing your travels ~ always a fun read!

  3. Can't wait to see Friesland all finished.
    Great stash!

  4. I'm so excited you've signed up for the Harmony keepsakes. The rose is gorgeous, as is ALL OF IT!
