Another busy day almost at an end. Today the HD3QBEM took her bags of knitting to the Hospice Shop where she was greeted enthusiastically and we both came home with warm fuzzy feelings :-)
This year she managed 37 garments (plus 3 more for the annual church Making Ends Meet Bazaar next month) and here they are spread out on her bed before we bagged them up. Each is labelled and marked with size. The shop manager said they sell at around $25 - $30 each and go very quickly. The HD3QBEM is now inspired to surpass her total of 40 next year.
Progress continues on the lid of the Sampler Casket. The bricks are all laid and I have built the fence and twisted the creeper across the front. Oh dear, it is difficult to get lazy daisy stitch to sit well. I had to settle for slightly imperfect! Next will be laying the lawn and then I must decided whether this is to be a 'family' casket and therefore I stitch people in the space or whether I will make it a 'neutral' casket and stitch a garden. The pattern is charted for either. I must make that decision or progress will be delayed. Currently I am stitching the blue bird of happiness on the left.
