Growing up, I would always watch my mom doing some kind of project during the LDS conference weekend. Usually it was crocheting some sort of afghan. She would always get a huge portion of her afghan finished. Who wouldn’t? It’s 8 hours of sitting in front of the television listening to all the great talks. What else is there to do? So, as I got a little older, I started my own conference weekend projects. I’ve crocheted ponchos and afghans, done some stitchery work, scrapbooked, you name it…. This year I was going to do something different. My mom had recently taught me how to knit. (Which I’m super excited about!) I bought the yarn and the knitting needles a couple of weeks ago. My first scarf was anxiously awaiting to be made. Sigh. That was before I got into a big hurry with my rotary cutter. Ouch! Sliced my index finger pretty good. Then, I decided to trim my monster palm tree. (We’re talking 8 inch long sharp, hard needles.) Even wearing thick gloves, I suffered nicks and cuts all over my fingers and arms. I discovered knitting was not all that fun with all my cuts and scrapes. I needed to find a new project. Luckily, just a few days ago my “American Patchwork & Quilting” magazine came in the mail. YEAH!! Inside was a pattern for these adorable sachet stitcheries. I found my project! And, I had everything I needed without having to run to the store. So, here is what I got done yesterday. Hopefully, I’ll be finished with the remaining two stitcheries today……..
