Bex and I dodged the witches, warlocks and goths to spend a little time wandering around Salem while staying with friends after Rhinebeck. With all of the samples from The Rhinebeck Sweater back in my possession I couldn’t resist trying them out. Don’t worry Gudrun, I took Pippinoff before eating a chocolate filled doughnut.
I had to borrow this great wolf bag that Bex stitched so you could see it. She bought the totewith the crosses printed on so it was really easy to make, but very effective. Here she is stocking up on embroidery threads at the needlepoint store. I managed to resist those silks, but not the beads down the street. In case that’s not enough craftiness there’s also a yarn store right opposite, where I found this colourblocked Blank Canvas on display. Excellent idea.
