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

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog :) Your cross stitching is lovely, you're very talented. I loved the fifteen sided biscornu; it looks complicated but really effective :)

I just found your blog via Edgar. You have done some beautiful things and your baby blanket is lovely. I love that kind of ribbon. We had a knitting store here that recently closed that had a lot of their version of hand dyed ribbon. It's hard to resist. May I ask, what is the name of the pattern you used for Edgar's stocking. I love it and would love to add it to my stitched Noah collection.
