Cross Training Crafting Continues

It has been a GREAT experience to fully experience other long neglected creative outlets---- I've been in the Happy Zone a LOT and after all, can we ask for more than that on most days?

I recently purchased the adorable stitch sampler from creative virtuoso Pam Garrison----- and have added by selections for colorful floss and some beads. I can't wait to begin it and really don't know if I'll start now or wait for vacation (and the inevitable drive time).

The sewing machine was purring last weekend and I finished the Shana Tunic from Sis Boom. Excellent pattern (purchased and downloaded fairly simultaneously), I love it. I have a couple more waiting in the wings.

Nothing in the world like a well drafted pattern---- it all went together so smoothly and was a pleasure to sew and to wear!

Jury Duty was yesterday and I was not chosen. Not a bad thing. So now I'm trying to check all the things off the list that have to be done.

and on we go..................... hope things are happy on your side of the screen! Are you cross training? Whatcha' workin' on?

Hi Tina, I am trying to knit this amazing circular vest and crochet a few cowls for Xmas presents, but I seem to beworking very slow. Life just is busy isn't it? Love the tunic.
