Cyra ~ A few More Stitches

Here are a few more stitches that have happened this week.

I enjoyed making my last garden inspired weaving, so I've started another fiberart weaving to match it using the same warp, and it has begun with an even plain weave at the bottom for a reason, which will be revealed at a later date when a bit more has been completed, and some more of my freeform style has been added.


This Christmassy Cat will, in the next week or so, be made into a hanging decoration and posted off to someone special for a very special greeting.


My Summers End Mandala Madness Part 14 is done (the fawn bit). Hope to get part 15 started this week too.


And, after a joint effort (hubby & I), we got all the lounge furniture out of the lounge so that we could get that carpet cleaned before putting up the Christmas tree and decorations. It looks so much better now, and we can put the furniture back in tomorrow.
We also went shopping for two days to select a houseful of furniture for the new house we bought for our son to live in while at Uni in another town a few hours away from us.

Phew!!! It has been a very busy week.

A busy week but you got so much more accomplished than I did. I love the colors in the weaving and of course I love the cat (crazy cat lady here).

Love all your projects, Cy! How is it that things get so crazy at this time of year? Your weaving is lovely and so is the mandela, but I'm with Angela and love the cat. Two cats rule our household for sure!

Thanks Angela and Judy, the Christmassy Cat is for another 'crazy cat lady' my daughter, who is now the proud owner of her very first house, and so this is the first of many years of home made decorations that I shall make for her each year to celebrate her independence (her two cats love their own house too).

It DOES sound busy! How lucky your son is! Did you buy NEW furniture? I hope he's the responsible kind. Probably, if you're his mom. =) I love your new weaving - it definitely evokes spring. Your cat is very interesting - is that crayoned? Love seeing the addition on your crochet mandala. It's big enough to take a lot of time now just to go around once!

Yes Susan, we bought some new furniture and some pre-loved stuff too. There is a fabulous auction house near us that deals with clean well-built furniture that isn't too old. Everything for the kitchen we bought new stuff. Our boy is well-behaved and responsible yes, and we have no problem trusting that he will look after the house and let us know if anything is wrong.
It's true that it takes a long time to do just one round on the mandala now.
The cat is painted first and then stitched.
