last coupla weeks

time's been whizzing by lately ... and i've been picking up packages every time ive been to the post office ...

fabric for my christmas project

a skein of yarn, a prize [ i was going to say from ... but it escapes me now] and a piece of batik widebacking, a very small cutter with a rotating blade and a pack of needles

some white ss classic redheart yarn and a set of pearl cotton, both prizes from different weeks from stitch and unwind, a new sock book with a great pattern in it, and a hank of quviut sox yarn from a shop over in skagway.

the half circle shawl that i finished is more or less stretched ... there is a broken thread near the bottom edge that has to be repaired.  i don't know how or why that happened!   i only soak my finish and squeeze gently to rinse , fold it into a towel and pat it then lay it out to be stretched.  i saw the broken thread and did not stretch and pin it.   i can fix it, but dont know if i'll gift it now.

i didn't get any sewing done [sigh] but i did get this made!   a squat mason jar pin cushion with my fave piece of scrap ... shamrocks and ribbons.  i couldn't find my curved pins to put in there; looked and looked, and found them a week later pinning a sandwiched quilt together for quilting.    btw, the pincushion isn't that big, it's just the camera angle.
