September in Stitches

September had some colorful finishes.
1. Pear kit by Merejka.
25 August - 10 September 2017
This was such a beautiful design that I inserted it into the long list of my current WIPs.

2. Clockwork Beetle by Panna.
StitchMaynia start.
10 May - 15 September 2017 (8 days of stitching).
That was fun, I have another one (Clockwork Bird) for the future.

3. And a tiny finish, my bag project.
Permin of Copenhagen 14-1321.
3 February - 25 September 2017.

Vanilla Latte socks

Finally finished socks for my husband. It took me half a year, maybe more. The most important I got in time for autumn.  Who needs wool socks in summer, right?
The pattern is free from Ravelry.
It was nice and well-written but I won't knit them again. I guess I am all for symmetry.

August in Stitches

More of my finishes in August.
One day I will finish all of my StitchMaynia starts, but at the moment...
Prairie Schooler Seasons. Summer.
24 May -24 August 2017 (7 days of stitching).

And Grand Finale.
My only project from 2016 is finally finished.
That was a lot of work but worth it!
Birds Perch on Wisteria by XiuCrafts.
28 June 2016 - 24 August 2017.

Filigree Bookmark

Decided to take my tatting experience to the next level.
My first attempt was just circles, this time I added chains.

The project is from the Inspirations magazine Issue 47.
I used DMC Perle Cotton 12 in color 642.
11 August - 4 September 2017.
The result is kind of wonky and small.
I think I will try to tat another one in brighter color and thicker thread.
