What I've been working on.

I had picked up cross-stitching again after years of not doing anything that had to do with it. My last project was when I was around seven years old. So here's what I got so far:

It's going to say "Live Simply, Love Truly, Laugh Freely". It's a cross-stitch kit I had picked up at Wal-mart about a month ago. My mom and sister are really big into cross-stitiching, which made me want to pick it back up. I'm hoping to pick up another kit soon to start as a Christmas present, but that all depends on if I find one that I like.

I've also been working on a shawl. It's called the Mary Lennox MKAL, this is the second mystery knit-a-long that I have joined. (I got two other ones on my project page, but haven't got the yarn for it.) I had finished clue 4 a few days ago and finally got around to taking pictures of it today.

The whole shawl so far.
Clue 4, option A.
This is the first time I ever knitted beads into a project. I had posted this in the Knitmore Girl's Summer of Lace and Bead kal, but it won't been done by the end of the summer. 

I also had done a little spinning while I was waiting for Jordan to get out of the grocery store. Yay spinning in public for the win! 

I'm spinning up some bamboo fiber in Egyptian Red from Spun Right Round on my Let It Snow drop spindle that I got from Sevenyaks. I did get a few people staring at me but I didn't really care. What was I going to do, just sit there and do nothing?

Happy Crafting!
