I must remember to take my photos in the daylight. These are not well colored.
I was sitting here enjoying browsing all the postings when I realized I had not made one!
I finished 2 pairs of socks this week. The purple pair is for me. I used a very simple pattern and the various purple shades in the sock yarn look great. The yarn is purplepalooza from Grant Creek Yarns that I purchased on ETSY. I made the variegated ones for a friend of mine to celebrate her 5 year anniversary of being free of breast cancer. I am a little disappointed with the pooling of the colors but they certainly are bright and cheery. The yarn came from KnitPicks.
I am working on a block swap with my small group of quilting buddies. We got the wild idea to swap drink blocks. I have had since last June to work on these and the deadline has been extended twice (it started out as September). I really do know better then to procrastinate BUT...
These are 2 sample blocks. I need to put caps on the bottles-I have a sateen orange which compliments the batik margarita mix in the bottle. I used tulle over all the green parts on the right bottle and it dulled the green too much. Funny since the tulle is nice and shiny with a gold hint to it. The left bottle, I only used the tulle over the background for the neck of the bottle. I cross stitched the labels for the bottles-you can see I had good intentions to get this done in 2011! So now I need to make 12 blocks for the swap by Friday evening-I best hit the machine first thing tomorrow and get it done!
Thanks for checking in with me and Judy at Patchwork Times.
