But before you get to see it, some other fun stuff.
I signed up for the Traveling Hook III charity project over at Crochetville (click the link to learn more). Anyhoo, Jimbo made a hook for this cause and also decided to randomly give away a hook for every 50 sign-ups. I was the first random winner!
The hook is gorgeous. Really, its a work of art. Its an "I"...my favorite size and the yarn just glides over it!! I feel very lucky to have a Jimbo hook of my own.
For Easter, we dyed eggs. Pi is learning to write cursive in school and decided she'd label the eggs with our names. I'm fairly sure her script is better than mine.
Rather than bake an apple pie like planned, I decided to make small apple tarts. I used the same recipe for the pie, but just cut the pie crust into bite size pieces and filled them. This was alot less messy for the kid and the leftovers were great for breakfast the next day. We popped them into the oven for 5 minutes and had them with coffee.
Now, onto the juicy stuff...the Cathedral Rose Window!
This is what it looked like the last time I'd worked on it.
This is what it looks like now!
I managed to finish all of section 2 since I've been on vacation. I wont lie...the end of section 2 had alot of cutting and reattaching which was incredibly unpleasant. Then all the sewing of the heptagons...ugh! A trip to the gyno might have been more fun! But I'm really happy with the results.
There are about a thousand little ends that need to be woven in under there. That'll be today's project.
If you don't see more progress posted in the next few weeks, please ask me about it and keep me on my toes!
