Ooh, don’t you think it’s hard to keep quiet, when you have been working on something neat, and you want to show it off, but you can’t because it’s a gift, and the intended recipient is within earshot? I do! And while I know I should just pack the project up and put it away for the next few weeks, I just can’t resist letting little bits of it peek out.
It’s a nice backdrop for another, less secret, gift: a new pair of fingerless mittens (Blue Knifty Knitter loom, single strand of Patons Classic Wool in Moss Heather on the bottoms and Forest on the tops), I think.
And a perfect place to rest the subjects of a Project365 photo.
I can’t tell you what this is, or who it’s for – you never know what family members are lurking here these days – but I made it using entirely materials on-hand, including much of what was left of one of my favorite fabric collections.
I’ve already said too much. Please pass the duct tape for my mouth. This is a tough time of year for a crafty blog…
“I made something really neat today, but I can’t show you because it’s a gift for someone who may be reading. How about a picture of my feet instead?”
Prepare yourself. I predict another fifteen to twenty of those posts around here in the coming month…
