Well, you can't really see the big stitching going on in this photo but it's happening. Right now I'm using navy perle #8 to big stitch around the basket parts.
In crochet news...I usually make the grandkids a stocking cap and scarf each year for Christmas. I saw these balls of textured yarn with a pompom on top and thought they might be unusual and cute. Package said it would make a small adult hat and instructions were included. Ok...so I started crocheting the hat. Instructions said to keep on keeping on until yarn was almost gone. Well, that's what I did. No way in H..E..Double Hockey Sticks is that a small adult hat. And, now that I look at the price I paid for the darned yarn that should make a small adult hat I'm really mad. I hope the stuff was on sale and I didn't pay full price. If I did I must be getting senile.
At any rate I found some yarn left over from crocheting dishcloths and figured it might match enough so I can finish up the small adult sized hat I thought I was making. Don't know what I'll do with that pink stuff. If I was a "returner" I'd take it back from whence it came...pompom and all. But I'm not a "returner" and besides, it would probably take the same amount in gas to get to the other side of town from where I work to return it.
Well, instead of slow burning I need to get back to some slow stitching.
