A couple of people have pointed out the blue thing I have going in my WIPs. It's true - I don't know what's going on but everything is blue all of a sudden! I haven't suddenly had a blue turn - I'm still not a blue fan - it's just happened. And here's even more blue - my nephew's baby blanket.
Wednesday is my gift day and I finally finished the horrid transferring of the pattern and started stitching. You can see the pattern on the tissue paper, which I started tearing off to stitch. I've tacked through the paper to transfer the design and now I stitch over the tacking with wool.
I didn't get much done. I was using quite a large hoop and I'm not used to a hoop any longer and it gave me cramp in my hand! But it's progress!
Back to Pompeii today and more blue!
