Miscellaneous Needlework

Some people horde materials, but I have a compulsion to use them up before I buy new materials. I have a sandwich bag full of different colored bobbins of floss, leftovers. So I started this interpretive rabbit thing.
Then I have a few balls of yarn out of which I am making an scarf.

Cardigan in Progress and Still Life with Chocolate Cake

The front and back are sewn together, the pockets are sewn in, all we need now are some sleeves and a collar, and then buttons. Then it will look like this:

The Chocolate Cake Still Life is finished and you can get a better look at it, or other foodie still life paintings at My Good Babushka.

Some Knitting and a Search Party

Here is the back of a long cardigan I’m knitting.

I’ve done a bunch of sketches inspired by the folk belief that candles set adrift on water won’t cross a drowned body. The focus of the sketches has shifted from the drowned body to the search party.

Some Knitting and Embroidery

I’m making another long, mock-cable cardigan. This time in the color “oatmeal” and a little bit larger than the last one.

Finished up my Sheela Na Gig embroidered pillow, too. All my hand embroidered works are one of a kind pieces, and I never use a machine in any part of the project, all hand sewn. You can find my Sheela Na Gig Pillow at My Good Babushka.
