I'm seeing small but significant improvements in my vision almost daily. I'm still not working on any craft projects yet, but I can hardly wait for the next two weeks to go by so that I can dig in. It's been months since I did a cross stitch or picked up my knitting needles and I'm thinking ahead to which projects to do first.
This afghan is going to be one of the first. It's a Christmas gift for my friend who is a breast cancer survivor. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make it for her. I think from the size, I'll wait till cooler weather to get it started.
I've had this tunic for myself on my mind for a very long time and I think the time has come. I'm trying to decide what colors I want to use on it. I keep changing my mind.
I love knitting toys and I just found these bunnies online. I have a thing about pirates lately. I think it's leftover from Bandana Day. These two little fellows are on my short list of projects.
There are several cross stitch pieces I want to tackle soon, too. One is a special surprise for one of my blogging buddies, so I can't show a picture of it. But here are a couple that I'm looking forward to.
I love things Russian and my very favorite place in Moscow was St. Basil's Cathedral. I spent almost a whole day there. It was fabulous and I've been wanting to do it in cross stitch for a very long time. Now is the time.
The other is obvious, it's Morgan. Doesn't that face just ask to be captured, framed and hung in a special place?
Oh yes, there's another big project waiting for me. I can read Sky's mind. He's thinking, " It's getting hot outside, isn't it time for us to get summer haircuts?" He's right, all my pups are looking shaggy and warm. As soon as possible I have to shave them down and make them feel more streamlined.
There are so many things I'm looking forward to doing and I'm adding more every day.
