Since Many Years Ago is a finish I could start another SAL. And so I made a beginning at Let It Snow. Although I didn't finish part 1 yet, I wanted to take some pictures and show them to you. I hope the pictures show the stitching, because I am stitching on a lightblue fabric with lightblue yarn.
Part three of Whispering Grass is done. Two clues to go, so in about two weeks this should be a finish.

And due to my stitching friends of a Dutch group I have some progress on Cirque des Carreaux.

Two finishes

I can't believe it yet, I have two finishes! First of all, Mary Wigham is completed with initials of my stitching friends.

And then the Sticklounge SAL Many Years Ago is completed too. Part 9 is done and I managed to do it before the deadline.
And then there is part two of the KAL Mystery  #29. On to part three!

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.

So long, Marian

This was quite a week, with quite some things done! To start with a finish, the surprise I made for a friend is done. It's a shawl, Windsbraut Padua, a design by Monika Eckert. I used Zitron Filisilk.
Here it is, called So long, Marian. Do I need to tell you she was quite happy with it?
As I went by train to bring the shawl in person, I went to Astrids's Dutch Obsessions in Zwolle. I could not resist a beautiful yarn and pattern. On my way back I saw this:
And of course I stitched this week. May Years Ago part 8 is done! Only one part to go and it is a finish :)
Mary Wigham has two more ornaments. This might be a finish too this year!
And I have a small update on Vibrant Vista, a long lost visitor in my home.
