Before saying anything else, I think you should know that I am highly irritated with The Tim, who has given me his cold. As if I wanted or needed it! And I can't just get a cold - no, I have to get a cough that makes me feel like I'm losing a lung every time as well. I think it's just rude. Particularly with a holiday weekend coming up.
OK, rant over.
Today is Tiny Needle Tuesday, when Dee and some others show their needlework projects. I showed a counted cross-stitch that I was working on right when I first started it, but not since then, because though I knew I had made progress, it wasn't easy for anyone else to tell. But I have made some significant progress AND I wanted to show off my new project bag, purchased here.
One thing I really love about it is that there is a window in the front where you can get a peek of the project - however, trying to illustrate that in a photograph is, as you can see below, difficult at best.
So instead, here is the project on top of the bag - I have finished half of the honeybee's body, and got a start on one of the surrounding honey cones.
As it's turning out, I've really only been working on this on Saturdays, so progress is slower than if I put it in rotation with my knitting projects. But I'm not on a deadline, so I'm just gonna work on it when I feel like it, and if that is only on Saturdays, no big deal.
I won't be making progress on it this Saturday, since we will be in West Virginia for Memorial Day weekend, and whenever we go there, I only take one project along, and one that is not terribly involved at that. Between the visiting and everything else, there's not a lot of time to concentrate heavily on a pattern or anything like that.
I've very pleased with my honeybee so far, and yes, I've made lots of mistakes, but as long as it looks like a good approximation of what the pattern image looks like, I'll be fine with that.
Are you working on any non-knitting projects?
