Being crafty - Show and Tell Friday


Ladies, I'm going now tell you something: I craft. Now, are you wondering, why this woman never posts about her so called crafting if she, as she says, do craft?
I will explain .
One: I don't craft as much as, for instance, Posy, Plum Pudding, Hen or other girls in the internet.
Two: I don't craft so well as the above girls do.
Three: having said the above reasons for not publicizing my modest crafting, I must say now that I'm shy about it. Shy about showing them, that is.
This year I'm decided to change that. Yes, I only do something for some minutes a day because I work outside and I arrive late in the evening so tired that I hardly can think.
Even so, I want go back so I'm going from now give you frequent news about my crafting adventures.
See the lovely wool in the above picture? I posted it last year.
Now see some progress I'm making.

Isn't that lovely? The not so good thing is, looking to the pace I'm making it it will only be ready, as my mother says, for next winter.
Yes, it's a cover for the royal knees of my husband so he will be cozy and confy when he seats with us to see a movie or even, maybe, Dad's Army that he bought for me as one of his Christmas presents to me.
As it growns only two or three rows a day, with luck, it will be ready next Christmas.

P.S.: What really boders me is, because of the strong light, it looks rather pink here, when its real colour is burgundy as you can see in the first picture.

For Show and Tell Friday, at Kelli's.

It's funny! One of my resolutions for this year is to dedicate some time for crafting. Yesterday I bought some wool to crochet one scarf (a first to me!) but I also have a cross stitching "Last Supper" to finish. Some day I'll post about it too.

It's gorgeous! I remember fondly how my grandmother and I worked on a similar stitch pattern for my college days a long time ago.

Please don't be so shy about your crafting. It encourages the rest of us to sit and do rather than just sit.
