A Busy Week

Had a busy and fruitful week. I put the final stitch to my Damier Checkerboard. Here is the picture. The final part to this SAL is the border. I am finishing this piece into a cushion so will leave out the border. Thanks Maryse for this SAL. Maryse now has designs for purchase.

Stitched up and put the final touch to a few biscornus during the week. The blue one in the picture is for Maria(her birthday is on the 13 October). Maria manages the shop where I give hardanger lessons.

The shop carries mainly DMC threads with some Anchor perle cotton and special Kreinik.
Knotty Shop carries a selection of linen, evenweave and aida fabrics. That is Maria in the picture.

I had added two adorable black and white kits( on 14 count white aida) to my stash. I have decided to stitch them on 28 count linen instead.

Happy Stitching!
