Finishing Up February

Last post of the month - boy, did February go by fast around here!

I've caught a flu or virus or something, so I've been too sick to go in to work for the last few days.  In between naps, I managed to do this:

The last two books of Frederick the Literate!

And here's the whole thing, waiting for the next step - stitching in the metallic bits on the books.

I've also filled in a bit more on Nostlagy (the pic is a bit fuzzy, sorry!)

And I started my Mum's next afghan, even though Mosiac Stair-step isn't done yet.

Whew.  Maybe I should get sick more often?  ...nah.  It's still no fun.

Here's another HAED to show - this one is 'Sea Beacon' by Jasmine Becket Griffith.

She's not my usual style, despite all the Hannah Lynn's I've acquired lately, but I like this one.  A lot.  I can't really explain why - but between the blues and the eeriness and the tiny ship silhouette, she's just perfect for me.

And one of my siblings felt a bit sorry for me being sick, and bought me a design from WitchyKitt, which is the site that has replaced Witch Stitch and Bits (although they don't have all the patterns).

This is 'Gothic Red'.  Very pretty!

  1. Wow and Yippee!! Frederick is almost done. I have this kit, but never started it. Great progress on Nostlagy. Your mom's afghan is going to be so pretty. More great charts.

  2. You crochet left handed? Do you also stitch left handed or is just the way you took the pic.
