Using Random Number Generator, the name of the winner is Linda A. Miller! Congratulations, Linda, my cyber-friend! I'll be in touch to get your snail mail address and send this little treasure off to you.
Of Course There are WIPs...
As I'm a couple of days overdue for "Design Wall Monday", let me show you what was on my wall yesterday morning at this time:
Two more miniatures are underway. On the top is "On Forever", based on a prairie highway photo from a trip home from Lethbridge ('way south in Alberta) a couple of years ago. On the bottom, its' "Autumn by the Slough", from a photo taken last year just outside of my wee hamlet. Both are constructed from commercial cottons, and will have some thread painting and hand-stitching as well as the quilting, which began yesterday. I should have them ready for a "Finish on Friday" post. :-)
Meanwhile, the beading on "Tree Line" continues. I was about to shop for beads Monday in Lacombe, when a woman in our knitting circle, who is moving, brought me a treasure -- including 3 packs of the very autumnal colours I need for "Tree Line". Whoo hoo! A gracious gift indeed.
And there is a bit of knitting. Over the weekend I finished yet another Chunky Cable Hat for our charity tree. This one took just under one 50-gram ball of Paton's Diana (acrylic and nylon) -- or 25% of the amount donated to our knitting group. I'm now wondering whether to make 3 more of the same or to do something a bit different with the rest. Although this yarn is "fluffy", it still shows off cables nicely, don't you think?
The photo shows the hat modelled on my "hat form" -- a 1 kg. jar that once held peanut butter! :-)
And now I must get back to those miniatures...so will link this up with WIP Wednesday on The Needle and Thread Network. My lunch plans include checking out the other participants as I munch. "See" you there!
