My mom sent me these two lovely cotton edgings for my studio work. If I have the story right, they are the trim used by an Aunt (Tante) for her son's layette set. Thank you Tante Riekie.
Below is a cross stitch that Phoebe worked on when she was a teenager. It is meant to be mirrored, but i agree, enough is enough. The background has to be filled in. It is a cool grey and pretty boring work. Just right for a travel project that requires no thinking. I now need a journey to take it on to finish it for her.
Knitted hexagons continue to grow on the pin board. I have two on the go, a multi-coloured one and a range of greys. I'm pretty happy with how the coloured one is coming along, but
|this photo will only stay centered if I add a caption. Weird.|
this grey one is a bit plot-less also. I plan to add some deep red or orange into it in small touches. Do I continue knitting this grey group and hope the addition of red/orange perks it up, or forget it and turn it into a pot holder?
