I stitched this little needle book for a friend's birthday back in August and was finally able to give it to her recently. I love small cross-stitch projects like this. I also love stitching monograms and letters with a small additional element, and kind of designing it as I go. I do need a chart for the letters, but the other element I kind of just make up . It's very freeing and these quicker projects give me some energy to go back to my longer ones. I might just work on needle books for a bit, I love the small scale. These over at mmmcrafts are outstanding.
On the boards— I have a desire to knit some mittens, which I have never done. I have some Halloween accessories to work on, but nothing major. I have some ideas for a new art print I want to make available in the shop, and I would like to start sewing a coat for myself. And new oils for the shop! Thank you for all your orders, I am testing the blemish oil now, along with the others.
Over the weekend, we saw Beaverton Civic Theater's production of Into The Woods, and had such a good time. I think it's playing for one more week.
