Welcome to another edition of TNT...this time with a finished piece! Woo-Hoo!
I'm not crazy about the pieces/motifs floating out in space, but I'm not going to rip them out. They are all over 2...I did not bother doing any of the over 1 designs - the fabric is just too tight for that. I do love the border, the pumpkin and the bittersweet. At some point I will pick out some backing fabric and make this into a little pin cushion. I have a dough bowl from Fletcher's grandmother that is filled with little cushions - some made by me, some by friends.
This was finished Friday night and I started to work on another unfinished piece Saturday, but I'm not loving it (which may be why it is unfinished). I'll poke through my unlimited stash and come up with something to work on - either a WIP or a brand new piece. It will be nice to work on lighter fabric for sure. This dark (the color of the fabric is Wood Smoke) and high count (40) linen just about did in my eyes - lol.
Last night I did manage a few more rows on the Shell Cottage sock - only a few more and I will be at the heel turn. And my Hitchhiker had a few more rows added at lunch yesterday - hopefully more today.
The other night I was reading in bed and fell asleep (with Kindle in my hands and glasses on - lol). I woke up about 30 minutes later and turned off my Kindle. Last night I opened it up and tried to get into my book and the message I got was that it had been removed. I'm trying to figure this out, because my Kindle has been in Airplane mode (and still is) which means that the book could not have gone back to the library (plus I don't think it is due yet).
Meanwhile, I'm at work and need to get busy. hope you all have a wonderful day!
