While I was packing up my finishes to send to WOCS, I remembered a little tea wallet I knitted some time ago, so I sent that too. Nobody needs a special pouch to hold their teabags, but the pattern was too cute to pass up. The free pattern is right here.
Next I finished a classic Mary Garry Halloween design. I think I'll send it to a friend who has a brand new grand-daughter. First Halloween ornmanent! I was trying to do a crocheted border in black, but my eyes said no way. So I substituted star sequins with beads and a running stitch. This is on 36 count linen.
I needed (needed?) and extra Halloween card, so this little Prairie Schooler witch filled the bill for a quick stitch. I had planned to get more elaborate in the finishing, but I always seem to run out of steam for that when it comes time to actually do it.
Inside, I have the cutest vintage printable. You can download it here.
And cold weather holidays will be here before we know it. So when I happened to stumble on this Shepherd's Bush Warm Heart little Miss Snowlady, I just had to stitch it in anticipation. She's just perfect for a neutral holiday card. Oddly, she's wearing the colors of the Washington football team. I guess that influenced me to stitch her as well. The photo got cropped on the right. For once, I did manage to get the circle centered in real life.
