What's Doing Wednesday

A little bit of this and a little bit of that ... the craft of the hour continues to be cross stitch.  These are some of the freebies that I have found, aren't they wonderful?  Another autumnal one has just been started.  I have accumulated quite a stack of freebies.  I hope to get "several" for each season and holiday and a small tree to show them off on.  

   Need to get seasonal fabric to back these with.  I guess the term to how I want to finish these would be "flat folds" ... slowly learning the cross stitch lingo and process.   

Now before you get concerned about the lack of crochet content (rest assured, still my first love) I had met a few friends last week at Barnes & Noble and one was crocheting with this amazing yarn with sequins that she had just picked up at Michael's.  Just so happens that I found myself at Michael's the following day ... goodness, you say, what a coincidence ... just had to pick up a couple of skeins.  So, so soft and gorgeous ... the pictures really do not do it justice. 

A scarf of this magnificent yarn will be in the making for next winter!

The sequins are not blue and green, more of a silver to match the yarn.  A reflection must have been picked up. The glitter is just the right amount and very pretty.

Just love that yarn!  This will be a coupon user for sure.

 Hope a Wonderful Wednesday
