I dug this out last week. It's Martin's Napoleon picture that has been about 7 years on the go, on and off (rather more off than on I have to admit). Every year I seem to get it out, do another page or two and put it away again. He made a plaintive request the other day, so out it's come again. After several days I have a fraction more done.
You can see the start of an arm now but it is, oh, so slow! The sky was much faster - fewer colours. It's all looking very green but he doesn't seem to mind, so I will keep going for a while longer. Maybe this year I can get a good bit of it done.
I have been knitting too, and the good news is that I now have enough yarn to finish the blanket I showed you a few weeks ago. I helped a friend out on her yarn stall on Friday and I got paid in yarn. I love that sort of job. Shame it doesn't pay the bills!
And I got this last week too - gorgeous cashmere fingering weight yarn as a late Christmas/early birthday pressie. It's begging to be turned into a cardigan.
