Happy Tuesday

Found some yummy thick yarn to make a cowl neck warmer for winter...

antique needlepoint apple picture found...

antique needlepoint watermelon picture found...
both of these needlepoint will join my "supper" picture in the kitchen once I finish painting...

because this is where I have been spending all my "free" time...
painting walls.
Have a great day!


  1. Marie, I LOVE your cowl -- is that single crochet you're doing? Those needlepoint pieces are a great find -- everything here makes me happy. Happy painting to you! xo

  2. Hi Deanna,

    Oh my...the minute I saw this yarn and touched it I was so smitten!
    It is a chunky fat yarn and sooo much fun to crochet with : )
    "yummy" is a good word for it : )

  3. Hi Peggy,

    Ummm...I think it is single crochet I am doing lol!
    I just kind of make up what I want to do lol! : )
    So far I can not read the directions for crochet. I know it is not that hard.
    I just need time to focus on it.
    Are'nt those needlepoint fun? I found them for $3 and they are
    much larger then they appear. Happy is a good word...
    I am always happy to see you visit : )

  4. Marie~ love the color of that yarn. I think I have the same one in 'fall' colors :) Great idea to make a cowl.

  5. Hi Nancy,

    The yarn shop did have fall-ish colors in that yarn and I debated about which one to get. I chose the brighter
    one because I thought one of my daughters would like it. It may be a Christmas gift??? Not sure yet...it depends
    on how much I like it or don't like it when I am done....lol!
    I needed to make something that would not take much yarn. I will still have to buy at least one more skein of yarn to finish my little cowl. : )
