Despite painful days with arthritus in her thumbs and shoulders mostly, my Mom, wonderful and persistent, finished her summer knitting project for Maya! This SASSY SWEATER will bring a joyful brightness to the dark days coming closer each day. Maya loves her sweater with all its crazy colors....it will go with everything she wears! THANK YOU MOM!
I would like to learn to knit BUT I have a feeling that my husband is right when he says that it will become another obession for me and I'll buy everything in sight and complain that I don't have enough time to do anything! So, I'll save the knitting for a time when I have used up my fabric stash, made all my crafties, organized my stamps, rubber stamps and scrapbook photo albums and have a weedless garden! (If I live to be that old, I'll be lucky to still have agile enough fingers to knit!)
In the meantime, I did make a tiny, oh so tiny, dent in my stash of fabric today while Maya was at her "Swedish as a second language" class (she's one of 5 Kinder kids who attends this 1.5 hour class each Friday--she doesn't have regular Kinder on Fridays and I don't work on Fridays--it's our cozy day together!). I"VE STARTED making my first fabric post cards for my Swap group!!! No photos to share but I'm content with what I've done so far.
AND I've pulled out the patterns that I will use for the ANGEL STITCHING swap!
AND I decided on the squares I'm going to make to contribute to the FAWCO charity quilt this year. (I'm a member through my local American Women's Club of Malmö.)
AND I found what I want to make during Crafty Day with Kelly Sue at the summer house in October! (Looking forward to that BIG TIME!)
So it was a busy morning digging around like a squirrel in my crafty room! FUN!
