Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

Some (Hopefully) Interesting Bits

Lots of stitching time this week as Heroes, Leverage and Fringe were back in addition to some nail-biting football games.  We also watched Bones this week, a new show to our lineup.

This year I’ve joined the Totally Useless SAL!  That’s right, you will be treated to a lovely colorful picture each month!  I even bought a special glass jar for the monthly reveal.  Exciting, eh?

Here’s January:

Ooooo….  Aaaaahhhhh….. See those DMC bands peeking out?  There are a few in there…

I love how I can see exactly what I’ve been working on in the last 4ish weeks by the layers in the jar:

I suspect that later months this year won’t be as clear when I go back to my usual “Barely Managed Chaos” rotation approach.

I finished and *finish-finished* my Michael Powell bookmark last weekend:

One goal complete for January!  w00t!

Knit the next installment of the KrisKnits KAL:

And started the next Little House Needleworks ornament, Pear Tree:

I did put in a little time on Summer Queen, but as I’m thisclose to making the Goal on her for this month, I’m going to hold the picture until then.  I haven’t touched the crochet goal as I’m saving that for a six-hour car trip back from Vegas on Jan 30.  Plenty of time to finish it off 🙂

  1. Your bookmark looks great!

    And that’s a cute idea labelling your TUSAL.

  2. What?!? No “All My Acres” episode? I am SO disappointed! However, I love the bookmark. Normally, I don’t go much for Michael Powell stuff. But this, I like muchly.

    Thought about the TUSAL myself. But, if I bought a cute orts jar, one of the DDs or the cleaning lady would probably break it the first month. And, without a cute orts jar, what is the point?

  3. Congrats on the finish! It’s beautiful. Love the illustrated ort jar.

  4. Wow, I love that jar! It’s gorgeous, with all of those beautiful colors in it. And I love the bookmark; was that a kit? Great progress on your goals for this month! BTW, I have Bones on season pass on my Tivo. We love it!

  5. Congrats on the finish! And there’s nothing wrong with a random rotation, that’s exactly how I live:)

  6. […] F:  I know that was done! We saw the picture on January 15th. […]
