For those of you reading this who may be Feather Princesses, here is a sample of what I am working on for your two-day class. That funny yellow blob will be an eight petal flower when done. I'm looking forward to meeting all these ladies who do applique without making the sign of the cross and saying "EUWWW, the A-word!".
And, just because I could, I knit a wee sock the other night! Yes, it was knitted in the round, using the Magic Loop method, has a real heel flap, heel turn and all the stuff its big sisters/brothers do. I used a size 0 needle and yarn left over from my first pair of socks. My mom claimed her socks before I could get a picture.
There is a nest of robins outside my sewing room window--and the babies are fledging--here's the first one to leave the nest and try its wings!
And here's the porch mascot--a big old toad who stays up on the porch, apparently enjoying the view and dry feet!
