Finished Object Friday
I still have one or two bags of UFOs to dig out. They are both stashed away in the same area as the stand for my Dazor lamp. If I pick out all the fabrics for the new quilt, I can get to that area more easily. That's the excuse I'm using, anyway.
I'm continuing to (hand spindle) spin the big box of brown yarn samples. I read this tutorial and almost immediately got thinner and more consistent yarn. It was the drafting that I hadn't been doing quite right. A friend very generously gave me a big bag of brown fiber when she found out I was looking for some to ply with the samples. It's so relaxing to spin, especially as a break from cross-stitch.
I'm working on several small cross-stitch pieces that will eventually be part of a project bag for a swap. I read this morning that the recipient of my swap would like socks. Since I have the time and the yarn, I think I will make her both.
