Before I get my morning started I thought I'd show you a little progress on my needlebook I'm making for a swap on the SRE List.
This is the front cover...

and this will be the back cover.
A close up shot of my favorite stitch combinations.

Below is the beginning of some Silk Ribbon work. Hopefully I'll get in some stitching later this weekend after I finish a little more painting today. Still waiting for the carpet to arrive from the Mill so the house is still a disaster. Maybe this week it will arrive and I can schedule the install.

Hi Karen,
This is beautiful! Far too good to be used in a practical sense!
Tomorrow I will be posting the crocheted doilies I promised you; it seems like years ago we had that discussion!
Let me know when they arrive, won't you - I always worry about stuff getting 'lost' in the post, until I know it has arrived safely at its destination.

How pretty, Karen! I love the colors you chose, and your stitching is so neat and lovely.
