One of the things I purchased in the US was a device to convert the cassette tapes from my videocamera to digital files. As they transfer in real time, it is rather time consuming so I simply start recording and then do some stitching.
My sampler is coming along. I found a stitchery shop in Fayetteville outside of Syracuse, A Stitcher's Garden, that carried the green floss I was running out of.
It had many lovely samples stitched up. Including a trunk show by Elizabeth's Needlework designs.
|Gentle Lamb Sampler|
|Antique Animal Sampler|
This one from the Boo Club Double Flip series was stitched over 1 thread!!
This simple pattern repetition of Coverlet Houses from The Scarlet House was very effective and was also stitched over 1 thread.
I've also been working on the brioche cowl. Last night I had to tink several rows to fix several errors. It took all night to do the tinking and get it knit just past the point I had stopped.It is definitely not error-free but good enough for me.
I'm not sure how big I'll make it. I have lots of both yarns. Perhaps I'll stop the next time orange appears.
We didn't do anything for Canada Day other than putter around the house and garden. I was just enjoying being home.
The year is half over! Yet we have a few adventures still in store for us.
Life is good.
