On the Needles


The  Downton Abbey Shawlette from a KAL is on my needles and also on hold until more yarn arrives.  And that may be a while because according to the tracking info, it was almost here (Federal Way) when it got sent off to Dallas, Texas.  How weird is that? That is some detour!


Meanwhille, I've picked up my embroidery needles and am working on this Willowberry pattern which I started ages ago. It will eventually be a quilt, and  the stitching on four blocks is done.  Here are two more of them:




And here is a teaser from block four.


Back to work!  Have a Happy Valentine's Day!

Maybe your yarn is trying to avoid the snow and ice. :) Your blue yarn is so pretty. Love your stitching, too. How fun!

Very pretty color for your shawl. Which DA character is it attributed to? Your embroidery blocks are so cute. You are making good use of your time while waiting for more yarn, that's for sure.

Yarn with an independent streak! I hope it cooperates with you when it arrives.

I haven't done embroidery for years.
