I finally finished my scarf. 🙂 I’m still not sure if I’ll do anything to finish it off, but I did like Missy‘s idea of chainstitching some sort of eyelash type fiber and sewing around the edges.
I finished side one of Sweetheart Tree’s Lavender Blossoms biscornu:
This is very sparkly in real life. I’ve started the back, which is supposed to be the same, but life is too short to repeat the whole thing (I would if it were different), so I’ll do the center motif, the border, the rhodes hearts and the fans in the corners and skip all of those vines. I’ll probably put those giant pretty beads on too. If I had to do this again, I’d skip the platinum fabric that comes with the kit and do it on white or antique white fabric.
I’ve discovered the ultimate multi-task! I really wanted to read the new Dan Brown book, but didn’t want to take precious stitching time away to read, so I got the CDs! I wasn’t sure if I could concentrate on both at the same time, but I can! It makes me feel soooo productive and has the added advantage of drowning out the annoying football noises coming from the TV. I was surprised tho, to find that the abridged version of the book is about 6 hours. The unabridged (which I got) is over 17 hours. How can you cut 11 hours out and still have the same book?? I’m baffled. Anyway, I’m enjoying it and see many trips to the library for audio books in my future.
