I am not getting anywhere with the beaded purple/blue/silver one, and I can't get up the enthusiasm to pick it up. In fact, I've done very little stitching at all over the past few weeks, not helped by gastric flu.
However I did do some designing, and one of the designs I then adapted for a 90th birthday present for my MIL. The only downside is that it'll be too big for a card, I haven't got a frame, I've picked the silks but not even transferred the design yet, and it needs to be finished by Thursday evening. We'll see!
By the way, they are Rainbow Gallery Splendor silks, and the lightest yellow on the left is actually much yellower than it looks in the picture!
