It’s apparent I am getting old….time just flies by! The first weeks of 2014 have been busy for our household. Our oldest daughter was engaged on December 28! Since then the wheels have been turning, websites visited, checklists made, emails sent and received, phone calls made. There is excitement in the air! Some important decisions have already been made…date and venue in Washington DC. It is a very fun time for our family and we hope to make their day very special.
In the meantime I have been making progress on some (not all) of my New Year’s goals. I have completed some projects! Yipee and it’s feels good. Here are the photos of my completed projects.
The first of four chairpads of the Buttermold series. I am experimenting with a new finishing technique…it’s a long wool strip that I single crochet around the rug backing. I think I really like it…here’s a close up photo of the edge.
I’m working on changing the living room decor from holiday (can you believe I still have the Christmas up!) to blue and white leading to a spring feeling. The first stage means new pillows for the sofa. I ordered the blue and white polka dot pillows from Pottery Barn and then completed this wool applique pillow.
