I got some really cool yarn last week! It's a burgundy, ribbon yarn, and I have a pattern I'm going to make with it. The pattern (I wish I could find a picture of it, but I can't) is a sort of sleeveless hoodie made with ribbon yarn and some fuzzy yarn as well. But not tacky, fuzzy yarn! Just a bit ( I think) not really hairy!
I've got too many projects going for the fair right now, but I'll probably start on this after I get the other stuff done. I'd like to be able to wear it this winter, probably over a black turtleneck or something. The yarn's sparkly... neat...shiny... Okay, get back to the cross-stitch piece that needs to be finished and framed before the fair! I tried to take a picture of it, but it's mostly pastel colors and doesn't photograph real well. This is the "Lord's Prayer" piece that I'm talking about. I'm also working on a knitting project and a crochet project, but they're going to be gifts, so I can't say anything about them on here! Suffice to say that I'm trying to get them done before the fair, and they're both about 1/4 done! And I only have a month...exactly a month, and I'm starting school on the 5th of September.
I'm also working on a pillow for the fair, I was trying to weave some ribbon together to make the front of the pillow, but I'm having trouble getting it straight, ugh! I took it apart, and I guess I'll just have to try again!

How fun! I recently got some dark red yarn that looks very similar to that. :-) It is mildly fuzzy. I'm planning on making a scarf or purse with it this winter, when life is calmer and I have the time and inclination to sit inside with a cup of tea and some calm music... :-)
