What has happened to February? I guess I have been busy. Cross stitching has taken a bit of a back seat as I work on my knitting skills. I've also done some sewing and quilting. Right now I'm working on an art quilt using a new technique. When I get finished with the beadwork, I'll show you.
Meanwhile - here's my first socks. I wore them last weekend--very comfy and warm. Knitted using Berocco self striping sock yarn. Turning the heel was easier than I thought. I'm now working on my second pair in a green/brown wool.
On the cross stitch front, the BIG project is progressing, tho' only a 100 or so stitches a day. I'm over half done with the 2nd page. Only 23 more to go after that. :) Still missing one color so there are some holes to fill in when I get it.
In the evenings when I'm not knitting, I started a seaside window cross stitch that hubby got me for Christmas last year. Not much to show on it yet, I started on the sandy beach part to get it out of the way because it's not very colorful.
