Nearly there

Well only one more section to complete on my panel. Today I finished another starry piece using ermine stitch. However I've just looked again at the instructions for this stitch and I think a lot of mine are just straight stars not coming in enough at the bottom. if you are interested in this stitch have a look at Hand Embroidery network
I've also started a crochet bag using Colinette cotton and wool yarn, colour Jamboree. I'm using an old bone crochet hook equivalent to a 6 1/2 mm hook.

As you might have guessed, I've had another day cooped up inside, there was more snow last night and another shower this afternoon with more forecast. Will it never end?

The panel is looking wonderful.

Love the crotchet too, thats something i would like to learn this year.

Hope you are feeling better, we have tons of snow here and no sign of it melting either

The crochet looks great, I love the vibrant colour combination. Crochet is something I've never quite mastered.

Panel is beautiful too.
