I decided that I needed a day to stitch for myself since so much of what I've been working on lately has been for others. Yesterday I picked up my CHS Dainty House wren and put a fair amount of work in it. I also worked a bit on it tonight - it's hard to put down once I get started. I so love the colors in this piece. I worked on the finishing the tree including the leaves and the large bird at the top left as well as some small motifs. I will put this down until next Sunday as I started an exchange piece and I've been working on my friend's baby blanket.
Thanks for all the nice comments about my "other" stitching. I've managed to grow my baby blanket by almost 2 more repeats of the pattern. I have about 1 and a half left to go so I think I can stay on track for finishing it by the 19th. I have to say I'm enjoying the crocheting part. I also plan to start my Monsoon socks this week. The pattern is a toe up process which is new for me and I'm trying to follow the directions. I found some helpful instructions on Knitty but I think I need to practice a bit more before I get it to work properly!
