Current WIP

Green Mat - Colette's Creations
DMC White Perle

I started this a few days ago and have just finished stitching all the kloster blocks. I've done some of the other stitches on the way round and am going to finish those off before I start cutting, hopefully by the weekend. Although it's called Green Mat, there's nothing green about it. It's stitched on a slate grey/blue fabric (no idea what it's called) using white DMC perle thread, #8 and #12.

I'm stitching this for my friend Marilyn, whom I'm going to visit in Spain next month. Hope she likes it.

And this is Mollie making herself comfy on the arm of Craig's chair while he's trying to do stuff on his laptop. She even wants up there when he's trying to stitch. Mad dog!
