I had a heck of a time coming up with a design for Linda's shawl. None of my designs seemed to work the way I imagined. Finally, after several days and nights, I found a yarn in my stash that I thought would be a great match, and all of a sudden a simple chain stitch border emerged. I then added a darker blue-grey running stitch to add a pop of color. So for me and this shawl, the focus was on simplicity.
Now for the all the lovelies that have been popping up here....all I can say is WOW!!!! I am just loving all your beautiful work. Great job everyone!!!!
I currently have two sweaters awaiting some embroidery, so back to the old grindstone for
