Playing with stencils

I ordered some of the Balzer Bits - small stencils designed by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. What fun they are. 

Here they are in my recent order from Donna Downey. 

Here's my favorite page!

Sky Scarf: March

Well I didn't like how my scarf was looking so I ripped the whole thing out, switched to a smaller needle, and started over! I like it much better now.

New Scarf

Here's a scarf I completed yesterday. Hopefully I won't need to wear it too many days since it is getting warmer here in TN.

Quick set of notecards

While I had my carving tools out yesterday, I quickly made this cute flower stamp. It's about an inch square. Love it!

I die cut a postage square from some DCWV cards and pop dotted the image - quick and easy.

Word for 2013: Faith

Here's a drawing I did in January of my word for 2013. I carved a stamp of it and the result is shown in red below my drawing.

I have faith that God will provide.

Sky Scarf: January

Here's the progress for the month of January: lots of gray days and working late where I only saw the night sky. Length is 6 1/2 inches.

I had originally thought I would do some sort of pattern with 3 strands per day but that quickly changed when I had a huge knot of yarn by day 7!

Plan B: keep it simple - cast on 30 stitches, 2 strands, and knit each row.

New to the Needles

This is the beginning of the Montego Bay scarf by Amy Singer.

Love makes the world go round

Here's a heart the sun made on my rug a few weeks ago. It's good to be reminded that love is all around us.

The second photo is a close up of a heart on a mule from the fair this year. Totally amazing!
