So, it's almost the middle of September, and I've already started on my costume for Halloween. I mentioned it in a post last week. Here's a sneak preview image.
I'm pretty proud of that pocket, let me just say. I've started on the shirt portion of the costume, but I need to go back and redo a few things on it before I'm ready to show pictures. I had to go back to Joann's twice to get piping and more of the duckcloth in white. I also was able to get a blue tank top yesterday to go underneath the costume one. And I got fabric paint for the back design. Come to think of it, I should have gotten grey as well. Damn. Oh well, another trip back to the craft store for me, I guess.
I haven't been motivated to work on the embroidery project. But here's a little something.
I've started on the border, but I'm planning on making it more elaborate than just a line of embroidery. We'll see. It's sort of evolving on its own as I think about it.
I also said in my last post that I was finishing Amanda's Cowl. Let me tell you, kitchener stitch is a bitch. But I made it. Here's a picture of the lovely bias.
I've already started on her next project, too. I'm loving the puzzle peices! They're just so simple and I can knock them out one by one pretty quickly.
Amanda usually leans towards chocolate browns...she must be having a green kick considering the last project I made for her, and this one!
The yarn for my sister's Christmas present arrived today. I can't wait to get started on it. She picked out the Lucy Hat in the same colors as pictured in that link. I'm looking forward to getting started on it.
I think that's all I have for progress this week. What are you working on right now?
