While looking for this counted cross stitch project, I found this needlepoint project. 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.
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). 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.
