Aaaaah! New Year's Day! A new year...and new starts of the creative type!
This morning, I wasted no time. My new stitching start...
Frederick by Carriage House Samplings....using NPI silks and 40ct Vintage Exemplar. YIKES! Maybe it wasn't the smartest thing to start this first thing this morning...my eyes! my eyes! I was not accustomed to 40ct! But I'm sure once my stitching corner is back in place, the light will help and things will go well. I've loved this fellow and his mate for quite some time, and it was kitted and waiting. This is the year! I had tossed around the idea of starting something a bit larger, but...ahem.........I have enough largish ones started already! So Frederick got the call!
After a couple hours it was time to head down to the quilt den for the New Years quilt start!
These lovely repros have been waiting....
and I got all of the first round cutting done!
I'll be sewing yet this evening and again all DAY tomorrow! Wooohooo! I do love a three day weekend! And a new quilt start! ;o)
Then I moseyed upstairs and decided to make a batch of The Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls. Which took most of the afternoon.
They're tasty..but almost too sweet for me! But I loved how easy the dough was to make..much easier than how I usually do it! So I'll make 'em again...with less frosting.
And then it was time to start a new knitting project!
Brooklyn Tweed's Guernsey Wrap using Shelter yarn in the Wool Socks colorway.
This is my first time ever reading a chart...and so far so good! I just need to remember to remember where I leave off! ha!
It's been a fun day! I love fresh starts...of every variety! Hope your year has gotten off to a great start!
