On Finished Projects From the Past:

I promised pictures of these things to people so here they are.

One is the socks I just finished last month. Don't I look stylin' with my pants legs hitched up like that? I made these with Red Heart, Designer Sport, Acrylic, in Black and Grape. I finished these for my trip to Boston. I made them for my Doc Martin’s boots and plan to make more but in wool next time.

The other is a Blackwork Embroidery. Someone, sorry I can’t remember who at the moment, emailed me some months ago and they asked if I embroidered, and if so, what was my last project? I didn’t have a picture of this until I visited my daughter, because I made and gave it to her as a Christmas gift a few years back.

(I didn’t have a picture of it without my daughter in it. And I have a firm commitment to ‘not’ put pictures of my family into the blog. They don’t like it.)

I found a similar project in a book of craft projects, I think it was to be a pillow, and re-made the tree to my liking.

Love the socks - that purple is awesome! I also LOVE the rug under your feet- and of course your high Docs too. Its too hot most of the year here to wear high lace up boots, but I do miss mine!

Awesome Legs Lady Euphoria!!
Very fetching purple and black striped socks, terrific work!
The blackwork embroidery is very interesting. The stitches look very neat. This is the first time I've heard of blackembroidery.
