Embroidery and Crochet

New Fabric

Fngerless Gloves - yellow

Fingerless Gloves - yellow

My package of fabric came in the mail yesterday, from stefaniexu. She has a really great shop full of really cute fabrics. I have been a fan of Japanese prints for a while and finally bought some, as well as some nice plain linen cotton blends for embroidery. I’m hoping to make shopping bags out of some of the prints.

I also crocheted these fingerless gloves on the weekend for my mom. They were my first project in a while, and I really like how they turned out. I wanted to make some for myself too, but since I am a bit sensitive to wool I decided to make these ones for my mom out of wool I bought last year.

I found the pattern on Ravelry.com right here. – except I flipped them inside out after for a more flat texture. Then I added the fringe to it, out of Super Stitches Crochet, which has a really great selection of edges, as well as stitches in general. I want to crochet more so I can try out more edging patterns!

I’m going to try a different pattern for my fingerless gloves. I want to knit them, and I haven’t picked the pattern yet for sure, but I bought some merino wool, and I just need to get some double pointed needles now.

New embroidery hoops

My new embroidery hoops arrived today. All are 6″ in diametre. I’m going to have to do a lot of embroidery! I still want to crochet or knit some new mittens or fingerless gloves too. Mine are finally falling apart. Anyone know a good pattern?

Mountains embroidery, originally uploaded by lori hutchinson.

Here it is. All finished! This one took a really long time to finish, but there are some things I would change about the way I work next time.

I had some difficulties getting it to iron out smoothly at the end of it all. I’m fairly new to ironing in general. Anyone have any tips?

It’s still very snowy here, and the weather forecast says we’re getting our first winter storm tonight. What were the last three days then? Friday night we passed three car accidents while navigating our way home. None seemed very serious, but people were sliding off the road.

I like the snow, as long as I’m not out in it.

Last night we baked sugar cookies and did some watercolour doodling. I love watercolour.

I think it’s just about finished as of today.

Hamilton

I like this photo of Hamilton taken from the highway last weekend, although the smell wasn’t so good.

view from my window

Lastly, the view from my window today. I love the snow. I am so glad to have it. I definitely miss it when I am in Toronto, where it doesn’t come till January (at least it seems that way). It’s been snowing non-stop the last two days, and I love it. Just 20 minutes south there is nothing, but here we are in a little winter bubble.
