I really haven't gotten much further on my second January Girl sock than I was last week. As you can see below, the knitting has taken backseat to other crafting. In the reading department, most of my reading time has been with my canning books. I guess all of the strawberry canning really got me into the mood to check out some new canning recipes for this year.
The bulk of my crafting time this past week was with this little project. Philip has been into Star Wars for years now and when I saw this little cross stitch piece on Facebook, I thought he would love it. The pattern was easy to find on Etsy, and only required a few colors so it was a quick project to stitch. I also found some Death Star fabric on Etsy which I'll use to make this cross stitch piece into a little throw pillow for his bed. I'm planning to save it for his birthday (in Oct, which also holds another family birthday, and I'm a planner, what can I say.)
