It is snowing in Colorado!
I need to stay away from Etsy. Found these needleminders from a seller in the UK. I kept coming back to them but kept shying away from the possible cost. In the end I got 2 from the UK where I could only have gotten 1 from the US. So I may just keep buying from overseas if I keep getting deals like that!
It even looks pretty on my current fabric. I am able to keep a couple threads going for the multiple leaf colors in this last square. I would never have been able to do that before. I wish someone would have told me about these earlier!
On to my current progress. I did exactly what I wanted to do. Got the ears done and then the outside square. I have made pretty decent progress on the giraffe. I made the most color changes on him and really have to keep my eye on the chart and then think about all the changes. So lots slower going this week. But I think it will look amazing when I am done. The close up is a little bluer than real life. Not sure why I can't seem to get a true life camera on the pics.
