First of all I want to thank you for all your lovely comments. It made me happy, to know you all are dancing with me for my finish of the Village.
As you might know I have a long vacation and so I have extra stitching time. But not only stitching time, L can also get some extra sleep, spend more time reading and do some extra cleaning in the house. Our bathroom needed some extra attention, colouring my hair is done and all of a sudden two weeks passed!
I have an update to show.  I joined another Yahoogroup and they run a SAL, called Many Years Ago. You get  a part every two weeks and part one is done.  I stitched this on a Silkweaver 32 ct,  Redwood Forest and I used  Purple of Variegated Pinks by the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.

There is also a new knitting project. A shawl, really big in Fair Isle Technique. It is meant to become like this, but of course I can only show the beginning yet. Its called Jewel Shawl and a Jewel it is, I think.

As far as the knitting I showed last week, I frogged it completely. For now the yarn is laid aside, I have another Mystery Shawl on the go and I will focus on that.

Wat een mooi salletje! Weer heel wat anders dan de Hollow Run borduurwerken.
Wat een veel belovend puntje shawl laat je daar zien, brei maar lekker door en verras ons snel met een ingebreide rand.
Prettige vakantie, Joke!
