Fall Sweater

Well as promised, here is my new Fall Sweater.

Its pretty busy to say the least. I thought the brown wool variegated on the top would calm all the fall colors down. Well, as this pictures shows, it just make it busier. In person, you really cant see the design as bad as in the picture!

Don't we all learn with every experience.

I'll wear it this fall, and yes, its quit warm. And thank you Kathy once again for all your help with this creation.

Hand knitted sweater

Well my TWO YEAR project is finally done...
Its an all scrap yarn sweater for me, yes, all scraps, just take a couple yards of each color and weights and tie them together and make balls of yarn. I love the look.

One problem,,all the different weights made the pattern way off and had to cut it all and prepare the sweater same way you would put a jacket together. My dear friend Marsha helped me out at first, then she left town for awhile, and then this lovely lady at Cupper's coffeehouse where we met each Monday helped me put it all together.

And again, thank you so much Marcia and Kathy. Now I'm more comfortable with cutting my sweater when needed! A scary thing for sure...ugh!

I might make one for my g/daughter someday, maybe! Right now I"m knitted out!
Although I am making four knitted hats for Cancer patients. I want to get those done next as I promised I would do them.

I have a fall sweater that Kathy is sewing together right now and its about the same style as this blue one, maybe a little different in style though, but in fall colors. That will be posted very soon.

Hope you like it and it was sooooooooooo fun to make, I loved the process.

Happy knitting to all my knitting friends.

Arizona Round Robin Doll

Here is Little Miss Blue Bell, she just arrived home all completed by such talented beaders who live right here in Arizona. Isn't she just beautiful and she shines and sparkles and will be joining all my other dolls that have been around the world.

All the girls did a drop dead gorgeous job. Thank you so much Sassy from Dewey, Jo from Payson, Crystal from Sun City, Susan from Mesa and Victoria from Carefree.

Purple Crystal Necklace

Here is a beautiful crystal necklace with some drop beads.
Wish I could have gotten a better picture of the shimmer of the crystals.
I first saw this necklace on the Beadworks class site in Dallas, the teacher Marci was very very nice to me and taught me the class on line.

It was great fun and Marci made it very easy for me to do this piece, thank you Marci.

Happy 4th of July

The Monsoons are here in Prescott so its hot and humid and many, many storms.
Lots of activities downtown here in Prescott, lots of vendors selling their Artwork, music and lots of people enjoying the hot summer day's here.

Me, I"m home catching up on things around the house etc.

Wishing you all a wonderful 4th full of love and family gatherings.
