Not much to show

A co-worker ask me to make crocheted a blanket for her next grand baby. I'm about three fourths done. I really like the pattern but putting the strips on is like crocheting the blanket twice.

Other than that I've been working on exchanges so no pictures of them to show yet.

But I did organize this drawer of silk ribbon so I could share the with a stitcher who is taking SharonB's Silk Ribbon Embroidery class. I bought these 6 or 7 years ago from Pink Peppercorns. I wish she were still in business.

They all have their own little drawer now in a 48 drawer cabinet like my I did with my DMC threads.

Thanks for coming by I'll try to have something interesting share next time.

Happy Stitching

Mary Wigham progress

I am really enjoying MW. Even DH likes this one although he questions some of the We're both amazed that she was only 9 years old when she started this. I've tried to stick to the way it is charted and can really empathize with her struggle as some of the motifs are a certainly a challenge. LOL

I wish to thank Needleprint and Shari of the USA blog for all of your encouragement, support and especially the resources you have provided. This has been my most enjoyable SAL.
Thanks a bunch.
