This cool art piece

Walking around Salem on Sunday with Ben and my mom we wandered into a couple of cool little galleries. This was one piece that I really liked-
Things I can't say out loud1

What a neat idea- embroidering thoughts that you don’t want to say out loud.  I thought it was cheeky and fun.

Last night I worked on some more brooches- these all yarn themed!  I’m totally gearing up for Rhinebeck!!
yarn brooches
I start with a circle of wool felt, and then I needle felt another color onto it. Then I embroider the yarn and needles on. It was a great project to do while watching house. I also finished up a bunch of other brooches that were hanging out waiting for backings. I hope to update the shop on Friday now (Ben’s taking his computer on Thursday, so it won’t be Thursday anymore). YAY!

I have also started my first wrist warmer!!!

I basically started out in the same motif as in Porom, but with one less purl. I plan on increasing and adding in the purl when I get to the hand. I think it will work. I probably won’t have them done by this weekend, but they’ll be a great Rhinebeck project to pull out during the day! And so small and easy to carry!

So many fun things going on and only 3 days until Rhinebeck! Are you going? Are you going to the Rav meet up or party?!
