I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time I’ve used Bunny YOP as a post title. Now that I’ve had a couple of weeks of down time, I’m ready to get back on the Year of Projects wagon.
I’ve been primarily working on my Vertices Unite shawl. The yarn is naturally dyed, and although the colors are somewhat muted, I think they are great for spring. I was planning to use the pink for the border, but I’ve decided instead to bring in a new color — the yellowy green. I think this is one of those designs that will look better worn, so I will model it when it’s done. This photo also serves as a way to tell you that our porch furniture is out, and we are ready for porch season!
I finally got the pattern cut out for the Melba dress. I decided to not use the expensive Spoonflower fabric for the facings, which will be inside the dress. So I’m waiting on some inexpensive cotton knit for that. I’ll use any leftover dress fabric for scarves for my Etsy shop.
I received so many lovely cards from the Global Gifts team after my last day. I thought it would be nice to commemorate them here. I miss working with my Global Gifts family every day, but I am enjoying semi-retirement, if that’s what this is.
