Anamika & a new scarf...

It's summer here so we don't need scarves but I've gone crazy and started knitting a scarf..                   

Also I've completed the middle part of the hardanger doily Anamika..                   

Have a great weekend!

a tiny spray

I found two embroidery hoops that I'd bought many years ago when I was organizing my work space. I think they'll look good on my studio wall which needs a make over.
I've been tweaking few designs to fit the hoop this week and embroidered a small spray to fit the smallest hoop..                       

yet to do all the finishing stuff.. I'll show the finished frame another time.

Happy stitching!
