knitted socks

I finished these socks last week. I was going to keep them for myself but changed my mind today. Show them to Heather and told her she could have them if she wanted, as I started another pair for myself with different wool and is a bit heavier as well.

I thought maybe I would have a bit of problem with the heels as it has been years since I knitted socks, but it all came back, no trouble at all. Very please with them.

Different kind of books

I like books..All kind of books. Beside reading books, I sure like "journal books". The other day I was looking at my shelves were I keep these books. I took them down and started to look at all of them. Some, brand new I never used yet ,some I wrote some of my poetry ,one I keep and write down what I have or want to do, others because I like the cover and could not resist to buy them, yep I sure like books. I will put some more on my blog as I did not take photos of all of them. The first one I got it from someone I worked for years ago. The second my friend Kay gave me that a couples years ago and the third one I bought when I was out because I like the color and velvet cover. I thought I put a couple piece of jewelry, the bracelet I bought with money I received from daughter Theresa and the necklace with pendant I made myself. Nifty eh.

Christmas Whishesc

I wish everyone who visit my blog a very 'Merry Christmas"

More on my cross stitch.

A bit more on my cross stitch. You can see the design on this side of the picture and now I have to work on the other side which will be a long process again. I have decided to put it aside for a little while as I found it hard on my eyes,and do something else. What I really want to work at is knitting some fancy socks. My Friend Kay gave me a pair a couple years ago and another pair for Chritmas last year as well a pair for Heather. The wool she used is kind of special as it does the design while you knit. The wool is specially made for that. I ask Kay where she gets that wool and she said her daughter got it for her. As she still had some I ask her if I could buy some, and she gave me a couple balls to use. It has been years since I knitted socks and hopefully I will be able to do them again, the heels are the hardest to do. Anyway with luck I should be able to knit a pair. Kay is coming back from her visit to her son in the state and I will see her Monday. If I have trouble she will help me. When they are done I will post them on my blog.

Another new bag

here is my other new bag, I said I was making. I finished it this week. As I had quite a few assortment of fat quarters, I thought I should use some to make a bag. I did like the black and white ones and of course my favorite color,lilac and purple which went very well with the white and black squares. As the bag was rather plain ,I added a nice pin. I very seldom wear it ,so I think it give the bag a softer touch.

New handbag.

A new hanbag. I just finish yesterday this handbag. I looked on the internet for new designs on tote or bags. I saw one similar to this one and though it was a bit different. I had already got all the pieces pins, so reworked it to insert this picture that I had in my files of pictures. I think it is nice and the look is good. It is quite a bit larger than other bags I made. I have another one ready to sew which I will be doing in the next few days.

More new books

More new books I found at another store. We were visiting my sister who is in a retirement home in Quebec, and after leaving her we went to the large shopping mall there and Theresa said there was an english book store, and of course we had to see it and this is where I found these books which were not at airport store,and is of that same author.

New books

Here are some new books that I purchase while I was traveling to visit my daughter Theresa in Quebec. My daughter Heather and I had decided quite few months ago to make a trip to Quebec to visit Theresa and family, also my sister Florida who is retired in a Residence .

While in Winnipeg airport waiting for our plane, we visited the book store, Heather and I love reading and as we cannot always get all the new books that does come out, was a good opportunity for us to see what was new in the reading world. After looking at all the books there,I went around a second time and looked at the names of some new authors and came upon this one, and reading what he wrote in the back cover, I decided to buy few. It is very different of what I had been reading and I thought it would be a great change to have something new and knowing I would not be able to procure them here in Flin Flon. It was also a good way to get some new authors that I did not know about.

I must also say that Theresa is also an avid reader as well her girls Linda and Susan. I guess it is in the family.

Another of my painting. This one was painted when my friend Begona was here with her husband who was a dentist and came to work for Dr.Crozier. Begona was a very talented person. She show me how to add person or animal in my painting, but unfortunateley I was not a very good drawer like her . She could draw anything she wanted. Of course she studied art. Myself I am self-taugh in painting only. I do like to paint landscapes best

abstact painting

One of my abstact painting. This one I thought I try to do my own design. is it really abstract? if not it is certainly different than what I usually paints.

another handbag

Here is another handbag I made along with the other one. With this material, not having too much of it I though I should make a smaller handbag which I will use when not having to carry a lot of stuff with me. Sometime all I need to have with me is my wallet and change purse and a couple more things. It is ideal for that.

New bag.

I have just finish a new bag. It is done with toile material that I bought a long time ago and really did not know what to use it for. When I looke at my stash ,I tought this will make a nice bag, as they are very popular right now. Theresa do you remember when I bought it few years ago, while visiting you?. I am very please with it, turn out very nice, but quite a bit of work.

all the squares put together.

all the squares I was working on and put a couple on my blog are finished. At the time I put a couple pictures to show what I was working on, I had only a couple to finished. Lots of work to do the embroidery and also to put them together. I had to decide what color the material should be and I opt for red , as all the butterflies were more or less in pastel.
