A finish, A start and I new idea
My husband's hands are still very sensitive to cold. Drinking cold beverages is difficult. So I made him a glass cover. It is made with the same stretchy yarn I use for my water bottle covers. It seems to be working well. I can keep it in my purse so when we are out and about he has something to help his hands.
I need to start something that I can use as a travel project. So I started Hippie Chick by Mary Engelbreit. I wanted to get a good start before tomorrow's chemo 2.3 trip. So I had to sort out floss and pitch the aida fabric. I found this 30 count purple that should work out just fine.
I sorted the floss and used a card to line up the floss. I had this ready to go and then I had a thought. I took it all apart and placed a piece of quilt batting between the two layers of cardboard. Then I put all the floss back on. What this should allow me to do is to be able to put a threaded needle into the quilt batting next to the color on the palette. We shall see how that works. Anyone who knows me, knows that I detest having to rethread a needle so I would rather park one and then it is ready the next time I run into that color.
