Today started out a frigid five degrees.  But by tomorrow it is forecast to be 53!  Maybe I'll be able to walk outside.

I got three hedebos done using the hedebo stick.  Using the stick makes the sizing perfect.  I could tell that I got better at it as I went along.
This is the first one, it's a little rough.  I have done hedebos before but not exactly like Amy Mitten does it.
Then there is the second one:
It is a bit more even.  Then the last one:
The top half of this one looks very good.
I got a big motif done on the current panel.  When I get this done, I'll only have the book cover to stitch.
I've decided to work on the spool compartments today.  They will be easy to lace together.  I'm going to look for some coordinating dupioni silk for the bag and pocket.  I think I have some - somewhere.
DH is playing soccer tonight.  I think I'll make a pumpkin pie for dinner.  Don't tell.


  1. They look great.
    Can't wait to see this completed, it will be awesome!
