I started this blog several years to make a record of some of the things that I have stitched whether it be knit, sewing or cross stitch. I also like to come up with ideas for gifts for family members. I also have included some of my writing but not all of it. Just a little rambling sometimes. When I was a child I loved to visit my great aunt in Somerset Kentucky. So many wonderful memories come back when I think of that time.

This is a shawl that I finished recently. I was going to add to a small shop in one of our local stores. This is the first shawl that I have designed. I had found the shell pattern in a pattern book and added it to the design.
This is when it was a work in progress.
As you can see there is a slight variation of color. I had accidently picked up a different shade from the bin at the local store. But it did work out. It was a slightly deeper shade of the soft green.
This is the leaf edge stitch that I added to the live stitches to finish the shawl and this is the first time that I had used this type of finishing. The little lump sitting on the middle of the shawl is a little rabbit that I made for my grandson out of the yarn that was used to knit this shawl.
