While looking for this counted cross stitch project, I found this needlepoint project.12_yr_old_needlepont  I think my MIL gave it to me when I was pregnant with Gracie.  She had done just  a bit of the green and I guess I used one color for the wrong section and gave up–with just about 60 or so stitches left.  What the heck–I have been working on it a bit every day and trying to sort out the colors to fudge it.  I am not sure whether I even like this but might as well finish it.

Lace_leaf_growing_1 The Leaf Lace shawl grows.  I just want to call it Lace Leaf though–it flows so much better.  There is a minor mistake that may need to be dropped down.  I am letting it sit a bit before I dive in (or pass it off to my mother).Mistake_on_lace_leaf  It’s a crappy picture of a crappy mistake but I just haven’t mastered the fine art of a closeup.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes.

    The shawl is coming along beautifully! 🙂 Getting the needle point done will be such an accomplishment, even though you don’t really like it. You can say “Ha! Finished!” and never have to look at the sucker again. *lol*

    The needlepoint will make a nice pillow and wear forever. The Lace Leaf/Leaf Lace looks good and the error is barely visible. Just keep going.
