I'm hoping I can safely think life might get back to normal, at least for a while. I won't go into details because frankly there are too many. The highlights include having two cars repaired and my hands gaining lovely scars on the palms. In fact I couldn't work on any projects for the last two weeks of October. I'm still terribly behind, but I'm catching up.
So here are the little projects that are finished.
A set of blue and white potholders that I made for us. I was trying to recreate my favorite potholder pattern before making sets for holiday gifts.
One cool thing about the ebony hook is it's made by a company that utilizes scraps of wood leftover from making piano keys. Lest waste = greener product. It also feels great in my hand.
The ebony hook does work great with my towels. Looser stitches don't affect the functionality in the least. I have more of these in the works for the holiday gift stash.
These were for a handsome baby boy whose parents are friends from college.
