More craftiness unveiled

So what I had alluded to in the last post was that I had taken up embroidery. I am making some bibs for upcoming baby presents, and thought they needed a little something extra. I think that they are extra cute!

Those of a wooly persuasion might like the little lamb,

But I am personally drawn to the little pink elephant.

It was the first one I did, so I didn’t pick the best color combo for it to stand out. I also did them all free hand, so no tracings or lines to follow. I find that smaller details work best. The frog, for example, is a little big to have the impact I wanted. But I am getting better, and isn’t it all about the hand-made details anyway?

I also started making some thank-you cards for my sister for her wedding.

I stamped a small detail on the insides, which you can see in the bottom card.

I have been knitting, just not much that makes a dent in any one project. Hopefully I’ll finish something soon!

Uh-oh

New craftiness has been spotted nearby. It still appears to be of the fiber-y sort, but not knitting or spinning or even sewing, which has been witnessed in this house before. When the mistress of the domicile was questioned about the appearance of this pseudo-fiber pursuit, she shrugged and stated, "It seemed like the right thing to do at the time."

Clearly, measures need to be taken before any more ‘legitimate’ woolen fiber activities become tossed aside and neglected.
