love how the top of this hat looks-the color changes really offer texture with the ribbing. I forget it doesn't take complicated stitch patterns to really show off a color scheme or yarn--sometimes it is the old stand-by stitch combinations that do all that work for you...:GRIN: I love those old school reminders. Helps keep me humble. This one is a simple purl 3 knit 2.
I have been brushing up on different embroidery stitches. Here I played with the feather stitch...
I am slowly decorating an old jean jacket. I will keep stitching on it until I tire of it's look. I am having fun with free-form embroidery. I see some fun projects with this technique in the near future.
That naughty dog of ours isn't doing her job lately...looks like the mice population is growing again! I'm threatening her with a ~MEOW~ addition.

And finally, from the garden:
Enjoy these last few days of summer vacation!
