The Week Where I Actually Got Quite a Lot Done!

This was one of those weeks when I accomplished a lot. Nothing from my February to-do list  (there's only one thing left on it anyway) but plenty of other stuff.

On Friday I stitched up this little Valentine for my husband, it's from a Sublime Stitching pattern.

My Love is True

On the Saturday and Tuesday (I work Sunday and Monday) I crocheted this mobius scarf aka infinity cowl aka neckwarmer aka 5 hours of my life. I used Sakura's tutorial for a crochet circle scarf. The yarn is a silk/mohair/lamb's wool blend from Noro's Silk Garden collection.

Crochet Scarf

By Tuesday night my sewing machine was starting to glare at me for not paying it any attention, so I used Little Birdie Secrets' tutorial and made a crochet hook holder.

Hook Holder

Yes that is some of my treasured stash of Freshcut, but I figured that with it being re-released, it was high time I started using some of it! My hooks now sit on my desk, all rolled up and in a nice little bucket of other assorted  junk tools.


Wednesday I needed something to do while I watched my daughter cut and glued an entire magazine into a collage, so I started another embroidery project. 5 little dolly dresses that will hang on her wall as soon as I get 2 more matching hoops to hang them in. Little Pickles is waiting, somewhat patiently.

Whew! I love looking back every week to see what I've done. I think this week was a pretty good one!
