Four projects

some waiting. Ok, yesterday was Monday. In most, but not all of the developed world, it is the first work day of the week.  I was just pretending to be functional.

For three of the projects – it was a new section in a stitch-a-long. I think I have shown the Herbalist one in the past. In any case, there was a cup – 87 stitches there of. Ant then there is the Haunted Cuckoo Clock from Tiny Modernist. I found this 16 ct Autumn colored fabric from Fiberlicious (came in a FOM club back in 2020). It looked perfect for what I wanted. And what I wanted was to not spend the rest of the day filling in the face of the color with three different shades of orange.


I think this works just as well. I can always go back and do that later. So that is two. The third was a new dragon which I will share on Thursday. And then there is the current Mushroom girl.

No cleaning was done….

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
