Progress plus

Since everyone seemed to like Alice, but really thought that the Bewitching Pixies was ever so cute – she is the one I went for.

there were about 350 black beads to add along edges, the band on her hat, and then fiddly stuff on the bow. You can barely see the Kreinik that is the string, but I am considering her finished.

At middle of the afternoon, I could hardly say that I was done for the day – so…

my start on Part 15 which had been stalled for over a year (and I looked it up – the original pattern was released in 2021, not 2022..) progressed to here –

leaving me the rest of the tree, two small bushes, another heart, and cup details. Not bad for today…

I have to make a run to the SFVA tomorrow, so I am packing up some knitting as a much more portable bit of crafting to take along. Think BART, shuttle buses, Muni, Bart and ACTransit. Fun? Not….

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!
