Mary almost finished and a new KAL

Stitching on Mary has been my main pastime this week. She is almost finished now , so time to decide wether or not to stitch initials. I decided to stich them and as initials I wil take those of the girls that have been part of my life since I re-discovered needlework.

They listen to me, they stimulate me, they inspire me, they ah-and-oh with me and they are my companions in crime when I buy too much fabric of yarn LOL

The first set of initials is stitched. MS, in the center of the wreath of roses, top right. She deserves this place the most. Other initials are to be stitched random, as I love my friends equally ;)

Yes, a new KAL was annonced by Renee Leverington and of course I had to join! Two weeks ago, when I was in Germany on vacation, I bought the perfect yarn, a Zitron Filigran, colour Taiga. And now I can show the first part of this shawl-to-be, here she is: Whispering Grass.

OH, ja een heuse OH maar dan wel eentje met hoofdletters.
Wat is ze toch prachtig aan het worden en wat een eer om op dit unieke handwerkstuk te mogen staan straks.
Dank je wel Joke.
Oei en dan die KAL hoe bijzonder is deze en in de donkere kleuren combinatie komt haar patroon prachtig uit.
Knuffels Chrissie
