Work in Progress Wednesday 171

Hi everyone! I'm sorry that I'm just posting this now. Since my friend Alea is in town, I totally forgot it was Wednesday since I'm not working. We've had a ton of fun doing touristy stuff in San Diego, but also just hanging out and watching tv. We've also had tons of fun with a Rainbow Loom (a bracelet maker with rubber bands) that Alea bought while here.

I've gotten a little time to work on a few projects with knitting group and last night. I got a little further on my second Hogwarts Express shawl. The eyes are added and I've done two more rows since. I love the way it's coming along, and though I was unsure of the square matte black eyes for the owls, now I like it.

I also started the Gingerbread Lane cross stitch pattern from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. As you can see I don't have a lot yet, but this pattern is adorable! We glitter sprayed our linen, which is so awesome!

That's it for me today. I hope you have a great rest of the week.

  1. No worries, you're right on time for my post :)

  2. Your WIP Wednesday posts of your Frosted Pumpkin Halloween Sampler encouraged me to get back into cross stitching after a (very) long dry spell of about 20+ years!

    And I also did my first blog post and WIP Wednesday in about 3 years! So thanks for the inspiration =D

    I'm waiting on my sparkly fabric to arrive to begin my gingerbread pattern, but I bought last year's winter sampler and started on it. How did you sparkle-ize your fabric?


  3. Hi and thanks for hosting and I love the color of the shawl you are working on & it will be pretty when finished! I'm new here and I look forward to more parties. Julie at

  4. I think the eyes are really cool! Isn't it fun to play the tourist in your own town? I do it occasionally with friends from out of town, and it is always pretty fun.

  5. Love those square buttons. Adds a unique touch and I love that yarn!

  6. I love the owl eyes just starting to poke their heads up in the knitting!

  7. Help....trying to link, won't take me. Am I doing something wrong?
