I am trying to work on Christmas gifts for my nieces and nephews. Every year I make little gifts for them, everything from photo calendars, fabric bags, pillows, luggage tags, to fabric bowls, mug mats, and pillowcases. It's a challenge I enjoy, trying to think of something special to make, and then making about a dozen of the same thing. Doesn't this look like a Christmas wreath?
It's not supposed to!
This year I'm knitting a special gift (to remain nameless in case I can't actually figure it out!) My knitting ninja friend Gayle has been teaching me how to knit on 4 needles. Knitting with 4 needles actually means knitting with 5. The stitches sit on 4 of the needles and 1 of them is a transition needle. It's very complicated!
And my FNSI "friends" recently freaked me out by calculating the number of items I have to make and the number of days there are left until Christmas... yikes! It means that I have to finish one item every 2 days for the next month. Take a deep breath. Breathe in. Breathe out.
Slow Sunday Stitching is stress free!
What are you hand stitching today? Are you working on any hand made gifts for Christmas and starting to wonder if chosing a slow stitching project was a wise choice?!?! LOL
